Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Another update after having the bar for a bit longer - it is extremely useful on waves. Case in point, there's a lot of times where I want to quickly dump some power as I downloop into a wave face. On the old bar I really could only do this by sheeting out, on the new bar, I can pop the depower a co...

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Quick update - I've had some more sessions on the Stick Shift, a few more thoughts: -Highly recommend it for surfing, I tend to make a lot of small changes especially when dealing with current between tacks, and it's a breeze and actually pretty easy to pull off depowering with a single hand on the ...

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Quick review - I've had the bar for more than 8 weeks, but before I could use it I broke my foot skateboarding and have been out of the water for 7 weeks. Luckily, I'm back in the water and have 2 sessions on it so far, here's some thoughts: -Line Swivel - Love it, works like a champ, one of my bigg...

Re: Kiteboarding in Tavarua?

So, long story short, I just won a week long trip to Tavarua for this coming winter (January/February 2018 probably). I understand that's out of season for both waves and wind, (which I'm fine with smaller waves, 10' Cloudbreak has me a bit freaked). I kite and SUP surf, pretty confident on a kite/s...

Re: New 14.5 Ocean Rodeo Flite

Yeah - I'm a big fan of the Flite, I ended up selling mine, but only because where we live, we don't really have a lot of sub-12 knot days, it's either above 12 or nothing. I always thought it would be perfect for San Diego and other areas that hover in that 10-12 knot range, especially with a surfb...

Re: OR Rise or Razor for beginner

Dylan, I've had both kites, and for a beginner you definitely would want something like the Rise, but I wouldn't advise a 7 year old kite for your first kite. I'd look around for a used OR Prodigy or something similar. The Prodigy is a lot like the Rise, definitely beginner friendly, but do yourself...

Re: 2010 OR Rise Issue

Glad to hear it, sorry I missed the PM you sent me until now. If you like the Rise, you should try the Prodigy, I loved the old Rises, and the Prodigy definitely has some of the pedigree from the Rise.

Re: Warning about the cheap GoPro mounts

Agreed, my session is on the bottom of the Pacific because of a crappy handlebar mount falling off a SUP paddle. The one day I skipped using the float too, luckily it was the low-end Session.

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

What changes are being made to the bar based on the initial feedback? The single biggest change was a line guard on the winder to prevent line snags. In our initial testing, we found that the bar floats were stiff enough to keep the flying lines away from the winder knob but in more exhaustive test...

Re: Ocean Rodeo 5th Gen Prodigy - Our lightest Prodigy ever

I've held off on reviewing the V5 Prodigy until I could get a few freeride sessions in with the ton of wave sessions I've had on it. So, luckily we received a nice weekend of warm SW breezes and I was in town to get out, so here goes: A little background - I've been riding Ocean Rodeo kites since th...
