For its 3rd edition, Mitu MONTEIRO pro model surfboard keeps on getting better with some new refinements on the bottom shape and some stunning new graphics.This bestselling and high performance board has beenspecifically designed for strapless riding from the bottom to the deck and will boost your riding skills in freestyle, waves and free surfing!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 maneuverability while 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.With the compact outline and rounded nose, we have achieved a shorter board which maintains great directional stability.
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.The two smaller sizes, 5’4 and 5’6 benefit from a bit more rocker on the tail to achieve more maneuverability and control, especially in the surfOn 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.Width is optimized for each size to make the tricks easier and get a more responsive board. Yet the general outline remains rather wide to get a lot of lift and make the most of the waves energy.A lot of work went into the deck with the Camel Deck shape that helps nesting your feet into the board to achieve great control.The  grab rail at the front helps out during the tricks.The Mitu MONTEIRO boards are all equipped with a tri-fin setup for a faster ride and a lighter weight for the tricks.

How many surfers have broken boards and wished they could replace it with a new one and get the same sensations they are used too?

Mitu once asked me:

Raph, can you try this board and make me the same one; it feels really good under my feet

I went out and tested this strapless board and was astonished by the control and sensations that the board gave me.After a few runs, I started analyzing what was giving me this sensation of control.I realized that my front foot was nestled in a heel dent and that my arch was fully supported on the rounded deck.

I could see that Mitu had spent so many hours on the board, that it had taken the shape of his foot.I then understood that I needed to make a board with the top deck pre-shaped to get this sensation on a new board.With its unique design, the CAMEL DRIVE DECK will offer multiple advantages: It will lower and stabilize the heel of the surfer and lock its arch on a rounded center line.It will improve stability, maneuverability and increase the rider’s board control in any conditions.pictos_hd_foam_flex_0The introduction of this new construction represents a major change into the F-ONE surfboard range: the two Key products (MITU MONTEIRO & SIGNATURE) are now dispensed with bamboo.To face the ever higher constrains applied by the riders on their surfkites, F-ONE has engineered a new foam composite construction with optimized flex, for maximum reliability, comfort and maneuverability.The mechanical characteristics achieved by this construction provide a lighter weight and a perfect surfboard feel.F_ONE_HD_FOAM_COMPOSITE_rail_1pictos_heel_shock_absorber_0The deck has been recessed by 5 mm on a wide area underneath the front foot in order to add an EVA shock absorbing foam layer.This foam layer absorbs effectively all impacts for the rider and makes the board even more durable.F_ONE_Heel_shock_absorber_EN_0
