Infos & Characteristics

 

The OFFSHORE is made for those who spend their day out there. It allows you to carry water, a tool, your phone, a snack, safety equipment and much more thanks to its practical and accessible pockets.

Its fit is inspired by trail running vests, hence maintaining a great freedom of movement and mobility of the upper body once at sea. The OFFSHORE takes up as little space as possible on the water, while still being able to carry a maximum number of accessories, including a wing! Indeed, thanks to its two external straps, it allows you to deflate in total comfort. Once you've reached your starting point, sit on your board, fold the wing, open the two straps, and compress the wing outside the bag. What's more, the often-flashy colors of the wings make you even more visible from afar.

We advise you to use the WING PADDLE ATTACHMENTS we've developed, so that you can secure your paddle along the central strut of your wing. The OFFSHORE bag has paddle attachments, but having the paddle in the wing is much more comfortable.

 

A word about “deflating”:

SUP foil downwind is becoming increasingly popular, but the logistics of a downwinder are complicated. Riding upwind with a wing, deflating, and then paddling out is much more practical: no car, possibility of choosing the length of your DW, etc.

MANERA has therefore decided to create a light, practical vest adapted to this sport: the OFFSHORE.

Note related to SUP foil downwinding: There are handy, mini hand pumps that can re-inflate a wing in just a few minutes, up to 6-7 PSI. These pumps can be a safety feature in case of difficulty (e.g. inability to take-off). They fit in the OFFSHORE's pocket, and we've designed a nozzle to adapt these pumps to F-ONE wings’ valves. Download the file HERE and have the part printed by your local 3D printer.

*Disclaimer: Downwinding require physical preparation, proper security devices, and assistance at sea. Please do not attempt any downwinders alone or without proper training.

Hand pump connector

The hand pump connector is a tip/connector used to connect the valve of your wing with a standard balloon pump. This allows you to carry a compact pump in a bag, which you can use if you need to re-inflate your Wing, during a downwind.

*The Connector is not included in the OFFSHORE vest. For commercial reasons, we did not produce this connector. But we still wanted everyone to be able to access the design and have it 3D-printed at home, so you'll find a link below to download the ready-to-print design.
