When F-One Tech Rep Gael Espeche gets the call from his local friends in Cabarete, Dominican Republic, telling him there’s a swell on the way with 25 knots of wind, it’s time to book a ticket and jump in the next plane!
This trip was all about striking back on the wing foil in Cabarete, 7 months after putting the F-One Swing to the test in the waves of the bay.
F-One’s new wing, the Strike in 4.2m, was ideal to try at Encuentro Beach where few have had the chance to wing yet. Encuentro is already known worldwide in the surfing community and considered challenging for kitesurfing due its fast waves, shallow waters and the reef all around the shore. Thus, Gael had to put the Strike and the Rocket wing board to the challenge!
