Ocean Rodeo Rise's wanted - mine stolen

Postby flyrob » Sat Feb 21, 2015 8:57 pm

Hi everyone,


My 10m and 12m Rise kites were stolen in the fall and I'd like to replace them. I REALLY loved those kites. Haven't found any for sale since.

If I can't find Rise's, does anyone have any other suggestions for high aspect ratio kites that fly really forward in the wind window?

Anyone fly the new OR Flite's in the 12m or 10 m sizes?

I'm also thinking North Rebel or Ozone Edge

Thanks!

What atomic-chomik (that's a hell of a name! :thumb: ) said is great advice. I've had several sessions on that Flite 12 now and it has quickly become a favorite in that size (the only other to hold a candle is the Cab Velocity 13). Super fast, nimble turning, forgiving, floaty. You damn sure have to pay attention to the kite for the first few minutes or you'll otherwise dump it in the water when you dive it. It's THAT fast. Love it. :D

That sucks your Rises were stolen........

I had a 12m and 8m from Windance and they were great kites. Really good low end for their size and could be ridden wayyyy overpowered.

Sold 'em on a whim and kicked myself for two years until I found suitable replacements.

I have a 12m Rise in very good condition that I will sell. I hardly use it, more of a Razor man these days. It's a 10 or 11 I believe. Probably been flowin 10-20 times, it's really pretty great condition for it's age. Let me know. Do you need a bar?
