Re: GoPro Session Waterproof enough for kite impacts?

Same, I've had it for awhile, but I mostly use a line mount or some sort of mount on my body, not the board. The board angle is kinda pointless and that's how I lost my original GoPro

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

Yeah, I'm debating what to get right now too - I've always ridden Dakine Renegades, they held up well and just worked. I switched (because I lost weight and needed a new size) to a Ion Apex Select, which took awhile to get comfortable, but once I got used to the fit was super comfortable. The only p...

Re: Not happy with Ion/North after sales service

Reviving this thread - I've had my Ion Apex Select for 14 months and it pinched my ribs at first and their rope slider had a horrible design (one piece of rope looped through two eyelids with knots on the other end - shredded it in 3 sessions - I changed it to 2 pieces of rope with knots on each sid...

Re: New Gear from Ocean Rodeo

Quick video on the Jester, Leo on the 9.5m Roam & Stick Shift bar . https://youtu.be/tJPgxoDAEvQ Roam_9-3.jpg Roam_9-5.jpg Great video - I like the old school Naughty by Nature too. I'm going to switch up my Jester to a quad, I've mostly ridden it as a thruster, because it felt harder to release th...

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Had another great session on the Stick Shift today, have been chopping and changing between it and the Control Bar for a quite sometime now, but it is sooo much better in the surf. Can trim wherever/whenever without adjusting body position, I usually didn't touch the trim too much, but find myself ...

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...
