Re: The Jester - The Duke's courtyard entertainer

Quick question on the fins of my Mako Duke (older 2015 model)....the 2 side fins have one completely flat face and one with a slight bevel around the edge. Should the flat surface face inside or outside? Thanks!! First of all, I apologize that you did not receive better instructions on this with th...

Re: another back line trim bar

However, to address your question, on a traditional front line trim bar when you've taken 6-9 inches of trim out, you've actually only shortened the front lines by 3-4.5 inches as the trim line is a 2:1 pulley. I use Slingshot Sentinel bars (which have a 2:1 pulley system) with the trim blocks (the...

Re: another back line trim bar

Still seems like it would end up pushing a rope sometimes... are the leaders something extra stiff? The bar features R3's patented Helix Force Tension system, you can read more on it on the Ocean Rodeo website . However, in summary, the back lines are held under tension so that the system isn't pus...

Re: another back line trim bar

Someone please straighten me out here. When I trim my kites for overpowered conditions, I am usually taking about 6 inches out of the front lines, maybe 9inches at max. Does this system allow for 6-9 inches of additional length to be added to the rear lines? And how do you regulate that if the depo...

Re: Back Line Trim Control, Introducing The Stick Shift Control Bar

@ORSales, any word on if/when your adjustable stopper will be sold separately for other bars with PU tubing etc? Sounds useful for Airstyle and taking tension off the arms when needed. This remains a priority for us but it's slipped on the schedule due to the day-to-day push and pull of running a b...

Re: another back line trim bar

Any real difference vs OR's other than color? None. It was designed by the the same three designers: R3. This is correct, the Stick Shift was the 1st release of the R3 bar but there are / will be other brands who license the design, BWS being the first out of the gates! FWIW, @Sun, you nailed our P...

Bummer 😉
I'm really good at coming up with excuses to replace gear. Just PM me if you need any reasons to replace your kites too! :P

Re: The new Ocean Rodeo Mako featuring Bliss air Pads and Straps

How about the boards? Are they any different? I have the orange 2015 150. Apart from the loss of the extra holes to go mutant....any difference? Thx! Or6 Since 2015 the Mako has indeed gone through some important updates. This year over last, they are less noticeable but last season's Mako was a to...

Re: The new Ocean Rodeo Mako featuring Bliss air Pads and Straps

@Thickair, the new pads feature both a super plush EVA foam and the addition of Air pockets under the heel and balls of the feet. By far the nicest pads I've ever used (and yes, I totally agree the very 1st Bliss pads were our best of the bunch... until now!)
