2006 Ocean Rodeo Rise 12m


Still going strong, and still somewhat crispy.
Never had a single problem with it.
Overall kite construction from OR is legendary...... built proof!
No loose seams, no worn fabric, nothing wrong at all, even the zipper on the kitebag still works...LOL!


By far the best kite I've ever ridden!

Post 2001 kites last quite long.
My most used old kite is a 7M 2004 SS Fuel (I love c-kites). Also have a 2002 flysurver psycho1 that I use for light winds. My average kite is probably 2008. Most 2005 kites were just so good, I never saw the need to go newer, especially since c-kites were no longer popular in production runs.
I can vouch for 2006 GK Sonic. I still have one that has had a ton or repairs. Definitely a sle ahead of its time.
