The New F-One Rookie 2012 Kids Kitesurfing board from F-One kites. How impressive it is to witness the growing number of young riders at our spots! Their morphology being different from that of adults, they deserve a specific board
With that in mind and after conducting tests with riders from 12 to 13 years old, we have picked a board of 128cm long and 36cm wide as the best possible size suitable for youngsters between 35 to 50 kg (75 to 110 lbs). And So the F-One Rookie was born
Size is not the only specific characteristic: the scoop and general outline has been optimized for their physical strength; the ease of going upwind builds confidence during the first sessions.
The F-One Rookie kitesurfing boards flex has been adjusted to their weight and to produce a lighter board.
The star rider of tomorrow can progress quickly by taking advantage of our experience in boards development. And F-One have delivered The F-One Rookie 2012
