Kona One / About

The e n O a n Ko story The Kona One was launched as a one design class in 2006 with an aim to re-introduce the adaptable concept that initially ignited the sport, and at the same time add the best of today’s technology and design features. The 4

result is an early planing and easy maneuverable board as challenging to advanced sailors as it is uncomplicated and forgiving to beginners and intermediate windsurfers. Kona One is simply for everyone.

Kona One / About

. . r o f d n a t s e w What Freedom

JOyful

Challenging

Windsurfing is about being one with nature. Hovering over the water with only the wind and your own body to steer you. This and the pursuit of new destinations to surf results in an unbeatable feeling of freedom.

Kona is about having fun. Not only as you’re on the board but also when you’re with friends sharing experiences and laughs. Kona One is about joyful fellowship.

Not to forget Kona One is a sport. In order for something to be a longlasting fun activity, we believe it has to be challenging. Whether you compete or not we want to give you the possebility to develop as a windsurfer.

n g i s e D y h p o philos We wan’t the Kona One brand to mediate the earthy an harmonic lifestyle which we stand for, but also that Kona One is about a sport. The brand is young and should therefore feel young. Forget about wind­surfing as a sport of the past! 11

Focus should be on lifestyle and solidarity and the products more in the background. The following chapters will give you the tools to make it happen.

Logotype

2.

1. This is the main logo. Whenever possible, this is the one to use. On darker backgrounds the white version sholuld be used. Care should be taken that the word “windsurfing” doesn’t get to small. Never make the logo smaller then 25mm at the height. 2. In cases where the main logo doesn’t work with the layout or design use this horizontal verison. Never make the logo smaller then 10mm at the height. 3.

3. This is the logo in its simplest form. Only us this when the space is limited and only if you really have to. This is the version used in the picture tabs. Use common sense when scaling and make sure it’s visible. 12
