Our OBX 2018 Trip is a Wrap!

Our OBX 2018 Trip is a Wrap!

Our Annual crew trip to Hatteras was an amazing to say the least! Another sold out week at Kitty Hawk resort followed up by a great meeting of several Ocean Rodeo crews in the area. Brand new Ocean Rodeo gear and unreleased equipment were on in full display.

“The OBX trip is so amazing, because it brings a group of people together from all different works of life, scattered throughout the continent, based on one common passion.  Kitty Hawk on the Outer Banks of North Carolina  is the perfect setting for such an event, for so many reasons. The best sessions of peoples lives are likely to take place there throughout the span of a week, because you can have epic conditions for every possible discipline of the sport, whether it be the flat water through Planet of the Apes, or perfect side shore overhead peelers on the outside.

And the resort… each room having its own large balcony with a hot tub facing west towards the sunsets, lets you experience the action up close and personal.  We were lucky enough this year to have 10m sunset sessions almost every night, where you could easily kite into the night lit by the shine of the full moon rising in the east, and the brilliant smoothy orange hues of the sun setting over the west.”

“It’s a Great Sign of what’s to come.”

“The only issue we had over the weekend was that we didn’t have enough demo gear to keep up with the demand!”

Gaspard Takes 6th At Défi Kite in Gruissan

Gaspard Takes 6th At Défi Kite in Gruissan!

Ocean Rodeo Brand Ambassador Gaspard Dabbadie put Ocean Rodeo’s Flite on full display as a true performance kite last weekend at the Défi Kite 2018 De Grussian.

Gaspard was a force as he proved that tube kites can be as competitively fast as traditional race foil kites. Flying out on an Ocean Rodeo Flite he was drawing great attention as he finished 6th overall in a pool of 325 total competitors. In the top 10 finishes over the weekend, Gaspard was the only one to be using a Tube Kite. Optimistic about his finish he’s hoping to jump up more spots on future foiling events, knowing that the Flite will be the perfect tool for the job.

Gaspard’s magenta Flite turned heads throughout the weekend, drawing attention as a kite that has incorporated speed and foil riding into it’s design for this generation.

Gaspard’s kites were the 8 and 10m Ocean Rodeo Flite at Defi. Want more info? click the link below
