Mango Carafino is the founder of incredible innovations, beginning with the Hydrofoil Kite Board. His dedication and work  created the discipline of sport known first as "Foilboarding"  and shortly after, "Hydrofoil Kite Boarding" in the year 1999 -2000. A decade later his innovation became an Olympic category of competitive high performance sailing where athlete's ride upon an underwater airplane style contraption, that elevates the rider above the water's surface, to experience the angelic sensation of flying as fast as they can sail. Thus Hydrofoil Kiteboarding became seriously mainstream.

The  years of perseverance by Mango Carafino pushing the sport of Hydrofoiling finally inspired the multimillion dollar industry of kitesurfing to embrace and incorporate his innovation in 2014. Today the Carafino Kiteboard and many of its original signature designs and innovations have been incorporated into major brand names in the Kitesurfing industry. All of which can be seen at the beaches and upon the lakes of the world where hydrofoil kitesurfing is taking place today.

In 2015, Carafino departed the saturated and highly competitive market of hydrofoil boards and went on to innovate solutions for military applications benefitting various branches of government in several countries throughout the Mid East, known as US Allied Forces. Supporting law enforcement and military efforts to achieve greater dominance in training and security. From ballistic protection concepts to thermal imagining detection solutions. Ultimately designing futuristic concepts that eliminate critical and fatal injury to law enforcement officer's in the field domestically and abroad.


However, Mangos true passion and love for the ocean and all that mother nature has to offer, particularly surfing the biggest and most perfect waves in the world, is only surpassed by his desire to inspire people to be the best for themselves and others. Perpetuating the cycle of promoting success, health and happiness.  No matter what you undertake to do, your success is first determined by your desire and then by your equipment. 

Carafino Clear Boats innovate speciality tourism maritime equipment, a new frontier of glass bottom boat tours. The Carafino Transparent Boat provides everyone, no matter their age or ability, the opportunity to see the underwater world of nature through the looking glass of a  Carafino transparent boat hull.
