Kitesurfing Awards 2018 – IKSURFMAG

Kitesurfing Awards 2018 – IKSURFMAG

It’s been another fantastic year for kiteboarding with all the brands working hard to innovate and come up with some incredible new products for us to enjoy.

IKSURFMAG is publishing its Readers Award 2018 with thousands of votes in 7 categories.

Of course, we are biased but it feels good to see France and F-One still in the kitesurf game in term of both rider skills, quality, innovations and creativity.

Notes: Okay, we cheated a bit since Alex is from Belgium, but from the french-speaking part …

Quote from IKSURFMAG:

The F-ONE Bandit has long been regarded as one of the best all round kites on the market, with a line up including the light wind Breeze, and the all conquering WTF and Diablo that have taken the competition scene by storm, it’s a deserved win from the team from Montpellier.

 This year F-ONE again take the award for Best Board Manufacturer and with arguably the most comprehensive line up in the industry with foils, twin tips and surfboards, it’s easy to see why they commanded your vote. Lastly lets not forget the fantastic Mitu Pro Model surfboard which is adored by so many riders around the world. Well done to all the team at F-ONE for scooping this one!
