Paradise is often pictured as a deserted tropical island, a private and mysterious place that exudes comfort and warmth. Every kitesurfer dreams of coconut trees, blue lagoons, sunshine and a warm breeze. Except, the F-One crew landed on a completely different island: Iceland. They thought there would be just as much to discover on this remote island as there is on the deserted and exotic beaches you see on postcards. Looking for thrills and wanting to reconnect with the feelings of their beginnings and feel that pure pleasure again, the one that only kitesurfing can bring, this group travelled far to the North, getting out of their comfort zone to explore new lands with a truck full of equipment, but what Pauline Valesa, David Tonijuan, Mallory De La Villemarque, Camille Delannoy and Etienne Lhote found was a very different paradise.
