F-One announced the launch of Papenoo Pro Convertible, a foil stand-up paddleboard (SUP).

The short SUP foil board allows riders to accelerate and perform in small wave conditions. The brand says that the kit will excel in knee-to-head-high surf.

The Papenoo Pro Convertible features a rectangular outline, carbon construction, a four-fin setup, and is available in two sizes: 7'7'' and 7'11''.

With an overall standard thickness and a wide template, the new SUP foil board requires only a bit of paddling power to start cutting water and getting into the wave.

If you're new to SUP foiling, learn how to control it before taking it to crowded lineups. Foils can be especially dangerous when they lift themselves out of the water.
