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.

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