3x Kitesurf World Champion Moona Whyte: Catching the Wind with F-ONE

Triumphantly joining the esteemed F-ONE team, three-time Kitesurf World Champion (2013, 2014, 2017) and 2015 Vice-World Champion Moona Whyte is set to add yet another thrilling chapter to her illustrious career.

Born and nurtured by the azure waters of Hawaii, Whyte discovered her love for kitesurfing at 14, guided by her father. This kindled a lifelong passion that saw her transition from a curious beginner on a shortboard to a globally recognized kitesurfing and wingsurfing powerhouse.

As she gears up for her exciting journey with F-ONE, Whyte shares a glimpse into her world, revealing her pre-surf yoga rituals, and memorable kiting moments. Her best kite session featured a heavy slab wave, a monumental barrel, and an exhilarating ride that ended with her jubilant face gracing a magazine cover.

Despite the inherent risks of the sport, evidenced by numerous wipeouts and near misses, Whyte’s tenacity remains unscathed. This invincible spirit, coupled with an unwavering passion for her sport, is a testament to her world-class stature.

In the backdrop of her meteoric rise, Whyte attributes her success to her parents, whose relentless support and commitment allowed her to flourish amidst the enchanting Hawaiian landscapes. Their belief in her abilities catapulted her into the global kitesurfing scene, making her a name synonymous with the sport.

Ready to take on new waves, Whyte expresses her enthusiasm about F-ONE’s BANDIT-S. She anticipates that this innovative gear will augment her wave riding skills, further cementing her as a force to reckon with in the world of kitesurfing and wingsurfing.

Moona Whyte’s induction into the F-ONE team not only signifies a pivotal moment in her career but also embodies F-ONE’s commitment to fostering athletes who encapsulate passion, dedication, and mastery in their sport. The world watches with bated breath as Whyte prepares to carve new paths with F-ONE at her helm.
