“I am really excited to be joining the F-ONE team. I think the products are great, and I look forward to riding them and getting some great results in the coming year!” says Joey Pasquali.
Joey has been racing in San Francisco for years. He won last season’s Bluerush Thursday Night Kite Racing Series and recently finished 5th at the Gold Cup in La Ventana.
“I believe he is a natural fit for the new F-ONE & Manera USA Racing team. We are currently putting a team together, and with Joey, not only we do have a top competitor, but we also have a great ambassador for foiling in general. Joey will be able to answer all the technical questions about the F-ONE foiling gear, whether it’s the hydrofoil or the foil kites. We wish Joey a great season!” —Nico Ostermann, F-One Kites
