The SWING is a light, compact and totally safe handheld wing. Get ready for a totally new way to enjoy the wind.
F-One’s design team of Robert Graham, Micka Fernandez and Raphael Salles have invested their full focus into the development of this wing. Endless hours testing and tweaking prototypes have led to one of the most advanced designs on the market. The primary goal of the design team was balance and control; it is essential to have this balance to make learning easy and also for the wing to be stable when foiling downwind on the swell. Power is nothing without control, and the unique shape of the profile allows you to engage power instantly but also release it 100% too.
Who Is It For?
If you have a paddleboard, then you need the Swing to go with it, it’s no fun paddling in 10 knots, but the Swing means you can use your paddleboard no matter the conditions. It’s much safer than kitesurfing and is perfect for getting kids involved in water sports. You can learn about the wind and the power you can harness, simply sheet in to get going, then just let go and the power is gone.
It’s great fun, and the wings are small and compact, they are the perfect addition to a paddle to get power on the water. With no lines you can take the Swing anywhere, allowing you to access spots that were not possible with a kite. As you improve your skills, it’s time to step up into the world of foiling with the Swing.
Surf foilers, SUP foilers and kite foilers are going to love the Swing, the possibilities are endless, and this new sport is only just beginning. By using the power of the wing combined with a surf foil, you can fly upwind at incredible speeds. Then, you can depower the wing, and surf foil on the swells downwind, it adds an element of safety knowing if you miss a swell, you have the power to catch the next one.
Because the Swing isn’t attached to the board and is very light, there is no additional weight. This means you can ride much smaller, more compact boards, depending on your skill level. All the power transfers through you, to the board and hydrofoil going through your body, you are in total control.
If the beach is busy or has been banned kiteboarding, then you will have no problems using the Swing, there are no lines to lay out, meaning you can launch from tiny beaches and even boats with ease. All you need is a little power in the Swing and a few pumps, and you’ll be up and flying on the foil, experiencing a totally new feeling that is hard to beat. Everyone who tries it gets hooked, and it is easy to learn if you have a foil experience already.
