Re: Sand / water / aqua socks to wear inside boots

I was in a similar situation as you were. I had tried dive booties and five fingers but everything was too thick. I tried the sockwas and love them. I have used them in boots that are purposely 1/2 size too big for that purpose and they work just fine. I can step on oyster shells and not end up like...

Re: Self-teaching

I'm going to agree with the above. Some of you guys are wound up way too tight. If you take your time and use your due diligence, self learning can be done and in a safe manner. I am self taught- I watched countless youtube videos, asked lots of questions, practiced for hours in an open field before...

Ocean Rodeo Gen 5 Flite Review

Its been awhile since i've updated my kite quiver. So when my OR Gen 5 12m Flite showed up on the door to replace my aging 12m Rise (2012), I was super stoked. I've had it on the water twice in flat water gusty/not ideal conditions, but regardless the stoke has not disappeared. Ocean Rodeo has a rea...

Re: Razor vs Rebel

I've used the Razor quite a bit but have no experience w/ the Rebel. Although I love my OR Razor, based off of your riding style I'm not sure its the kite for you. The Razor is catered more towards freestyle and unhooked riding. With that being said, i've used it to freeride as well and have had a l...

Re: seat harness recommendations

F27Corsair, the Ocean Rodeo hybrid looks interesting. It never rides up or crushes your ribs? Do you wear it as a seat or waist? It never crushes my ribs. The only time it even starts to ride up is if the leg straps work themselves loose. For me, this happens once or twice per session, and I just d...

Re: seat harness recommendations

I have always been a fan of ocean rodeo's session 2 harness. It's not a diaper style like most of the seat harnesses, but is setup more like a climbing harness- which in my opinion serves the same purpose of keeping the harness down off your chest. It's always worked great for me; I'm surprised it d...

Re: How can you afford to start kiteboarding?

Here's my take. Kite lessons too expensive? Then you have the personal right to not take them. Know that this is a riskier path to becoming a kiteboarder and you need to be disciplined in your training and learning methods along the way. The sport will kill you if you let it. Stating that 'if you ca...

Re: Do it or don't ? Learn it by yourself...

Wow, you guys really make it hard for new guys to want to get in the sport. "Can't take lessons near your spot? You need to go travel on vacation and get lessons, or pay someone to come to you.".... REALLY?! I can appreciate the strong reliance on lessons for kitesurfing. I understand its importance...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Go-Joe , or reel leash?

That's what the GoJoe is for. So you can see the board and then body drag to it. It doesn't magically retrieve your board for you - the sail effect is helpful, but most people with a GoJoe don't just sit there waiting for it to slowly float downwind. When I was a beginner I spent crazy amounts of t...
