  • Direct Drive – a minimum thickness board that has a wood core which is covered in fiberglass. Wood is very resistant and offers plenty of flex and pop; fiberglass is lightweight and incredibly durable. A high performance board needs to be lightweight, durable, quick, very precise, and capable of handling the chop. Direct Drive ensures the board is just that: a high performance board.
  • Simple Concave/Steps – the board combines a concave in the bottom part and a channel straightening the middle. This gives the board huge upwind ability, almost instant planning, and the ability to absorb the chops. The board is easy to control and quite comfortable.
  • Wood Core – by going with wood, F-One can manufacture boards that are 11mm thin in the center and 3mm thin at the tips. All this is made possible by the fact that wood is a very durable material, that offers plenty of flex and can absorb the shocks when riding in the chop.
  • ABS Inverted Rail – the inverted profile rail means you get a more progressive and more constant contact on the water.
  • Dynamic Flex – the board absorbs the shock of riding on uneven surfaces, resulting in a smoother ride. Your legs don’t suffer the strain; you can more easily control the board.
  • Twist Carbon Control – this technology improves the comfort and performance of the board. It does this by stabilizing the board and by providing easy and clean tracking.
  • V-Lateral – a new lateral V that gives a free feeling while keeping the board on track and under control when you want to go fast or throw high jumps.
  • Pads Pro Platinum 2010 - 3D molded platinum pads and straps
  • Straplock II – system for easy mount and setup.
  • Board handle
  • G10 fins

When F-One set out to create the Acid3 board, it had a clear goal in mind, something that probably sounded like this: “make the best board for freestyle new school tricks”. F-One followed this goal and successfully managed to reach it. The 2010 Acid3 board is indeed the ultimate freestyle weapon.

There are several elements that make the 2010 Acid3 a properly good freestyle board: explosive pop, soft landings, smoother ride, sharp edging, and unmatched responsiveness. To put it bluntly, this board offers everything you will ever need to perform huge tricks. It is a properly good choice for new school freestyle riders who want a durable, good looking, top performance board.

The 2010 Acid3 board has a wooden core that’s covered in carbon fiber. By going with wood and carbon fiber, F-One could design a board that is incredibly thin (11mm thin in the center and 3mm thin at the tips) and incredibly durable (wood is very durable and so is carbon fiber). The wood offers plenty of pop and flex, while the carbon fiber construction, called Twist Carbon Control, stabilizes the board and provides easy and clean tracking. The wooden core and carbon fiber construction coupled with a concave in the bottom part and a channel straightening translate to a very smooth ride – the Acid3 board can soak up the chop and the shock when you land. To make the ride even more comfortable, the board comes with 3D molded Platinum Pads which offer incredible comfort and energy diffusion.

Acid3 is what a true freestyler is looking for. It is fast, it has plenty of power and boosts like a rocket through the waves. It needs good edging to pull out extreme tricks with it, but it feels comfortable and runs smoothly. It is very thin and...more
