IT STARTS WITH ADVENTURE
On Vancouver Island, Canada we’re far from a tropical paradise. Our island creates the perfect testing grounds to develop equipment for extreme marine conditions. Strong winds meeting cold waters on a remote, rocky, log strewn coastline is what we call home.
It’s our playground and we love it this way and it’s these unwelcoming conditions that drive Ocean Rodeo’s innovation. Whether you’re a recreational enthusiast or a professional mariner, you can rest assured that when the conditions slide unexpectedly into the extreme, we will have you covered.
INNOVATION THROUGH NECESSITY
Ocean Rodeo’s founder, Richard Myerscough and his lifelong friend, Ross Harrington grew up first and foremost as avid adventurists. The two were active in the formative years of windsurfing, cold water surfing, kiteboarding and SUP. Never tiring or stopping to be active in the sport, and to this day proud to be riders, not investors.
Self taught and making early models of all their equipment in the 70’s and 80’s, Richard and Ross learned the hard way that good enough was never, good enough and bring their creative and innovative outlook to every new project Ocean Rodeo sets into motion.
