F-One Mitu Monteiro pro model (2017)

Mitu Monteiro pro model (2017)

De 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro pro model in het kort.

The 2017 PRO MODEL MITU MONTEIRO range is the 4th edition of this bestseller!
Those high performance boards especially designed for strapless riding became a reference on the market in just a few years. 

This year, the range receives two new models: the ultra-light CARBON version and the ESSENTIAL version!

Throughout the years, Mitu has acquired an impressive experience and expertisewhile being a clear pioneer of strapless riding. Having a really good feel for the gear with some sharp analytical skills and a lot of curiosity, he got totally involved in the development of his pro model. Mitu also likes to try a lot of different boards while kiting but also for surfing. His approach therefore stays true to F-ONE’s ethos of creating products that are high performance but always remain ultra-versatile.

The MITU MONTEIRO PRO MODEL receives the proven HD FOAM FLEX COMPOSITE construction which improves the board so much thanks to its flexibility and comfort. This includes a high density foam sandwich, with optimized flex to improve reliability, provide outstanding comfort and better maneuverabilitywhile keeping the boards lighter.

The HEEL SHOCK ABSORBER featured on the deck softens all impacts and landings for the rider while increasing the board durability. Mitu used to like longer boards because of the added stability they offer. With the compact outline and the rounded nose, we have achieved a shorter board which keeps some great directional stability. 

The outline is designed to make the tricks easier and get a more responsive board. Yet the boards remain rather wide to get a lot of lift and make the most of the waves’ energy. Looking at the bottom, we have used a very deep single concave that extends all the way back to the fins. This guarantees an early planning with sharp accelerations on and off the surf while helping out dealing with the chop.

For 2016 the two smaller sizes, which include the 5’6 and a new 5’4, benefit from a bit more rocker on the tail to achieve more maneuverability and control, especially in the surf. On the other side, the two larger sizes, 5’8 and 5’10, the concave has been reduced slightly around the fins to make the board easier and more progressive in the turns and while carving. The Mitu MONTEIRO boards are all equipped with a tri-fin setup for a faster ride and a lighter weight for the tricks.

n deck, the CAMEL DECK shape helps nesting your feet into the board for an incredible control while the grab rail at the front will help out during the tricks.

By testing it on all the different spots of his island Mitu pushed hard to develop a truly innovative range of boards which excels in all kind of riding. A typical day usually includes some freestyle at Kite Beach in the morning, followed by a kite wave session in Ponta Preta in the afternoon, before a late surfing session in the evening when the wind has gone. And doing it all with the same board does not seem to take anything off his impressive riding level!
