F-One Mitu Monteiro (ESL) Essential 2019
More than an icon or a best-seller, the 2019 F-One Mitu (ESL) Essential is first and foremost Mitu MONTEIRO’s own board and this can mean only one thing: the board just as the man behind it remains firmly at the top of its game year after year.
- 100% dedicated to strapless riding
- Excellent in waves AND for freestyle
- Intuitive and playful in ALL conditions
- Available for everyone! (3 construction standards x 5 sizes = 15 boards to choose from!)
The F-One Mitu (ESL) Essential 2019 takes advantage of their full bamboo construction to offer the amazing Mitu shape in a simple package with excellent value. Built with two layers of bamboo on deck for durability, the boards come with a tail pad only for those after an original surfboard feel. Equipped some foot strap inserts and with three Futures boxes the 2019 F-One Mitu Monteiro (ESL) Essential comes with a thruster fin set and the possibility to add a front pad as an option if desired.
With the compact outline, the deep single concave remains the DNA of the F-One Mitu (ESL) Essential 2019 which is known for its easy planing, sharp acceleration and great directional stability. The bottom features a channel at the front of the board to help while landing fins front.
The maneuverability is really impressive and takes advantage of a much refined rockerline. Travelling back along the bottom of the board, the concave fades progressively towards the back marking a rounded kick in the rockerline which further helps making the turns smooth and effortless.
Combined with some thin rails at the back, the fish tail remains the best compromise between planing, stability, turning and pop.
The range includes 5 sizes from 5’2 to 5’10 with the smaller ones having more focus on maneuverability and speed control, while the largest sizes have a bit more emphasize on the planing ability and general stability. All share the same shape features with their specific outline to make the most of the wave’s energy.
Bamboo fibers are highly resistant and really light. The FULL BAMBOO construction uses natural properties of bamboo veneers placed between fiberglass layers to create a strong, durable, light shell for the entire board (deck and bottom).
DOUBLE BAMBOO DECK
An extra layer of bamboo (DOUBLE BAMBOO DECK) is located in the stance area to make the deck even more resistant to local hell pressures and dings. This results into light, strong and responsive boards to enjoy session after session.
