ikSurfMag Talks Pilot Bar

 

When iKsurf mag approached us with questions on our thoughts on control bars and where they fit in the grand scheme of the sport we couldn’t help but talk to them about how our present offering will start to affect the future. Having just released the pilot bar Ocean Rodeo was already ready to answer questions with them on what was most prevalent on our bar.

“Possibly the most overlooked and underrated bit of equipment in your quiver, the control bar is the connection between rider and kite. To find out more about this crucial piece of equipment”

While our pro riders were out competing hard in Morocco at the GKA world tour, they were able to get away from the action just long enough to pass our Next Gen Roam to the team over at The Kite Mag. Here’s a little excerpt from their article.

The Kite Mag’s Take

 

“there is a lovely smooth delivery of power as you dive the kite and then it drives forward in the window and delivered plenty of power for cruising around. Also impressive was the upwind performance which seemed to defy the laws of physics as it feels like the kite is sitting pretty deep but it still really trucks you upwind.”

A Wave Kite Like No Other

The Roam is Ocean Rodeo’s dedicated wave kite and the kite of Choice for Ocean Rodeo’s GKA pro rider’s Carla Herrera and Reece Myerscough. Built with a No Excuses attitude this kite is second to none in wave riding.

 

The Race to Alaska is Upon us

The Race to Alaska is Upon us

The Race To Alaska is Live!

 

Leaving at the crack of dawn this morning, the Race to Alaska began it’s trial run from Port Townsend, Washington to Victoria, BC, Canada. The next leg of the race? a grueling 750 mile cold water race all the way to Ketchikat, Alaska. Such a long and daunting task requires a true No Excuses attitude which is exactly why Ocean Rodeo is a sponsor of the race and all its graceful chaos.

Follow The Race From Home

 

For all you Tracker Junkies, R2AK has an active tracker for you to follow the action no matter where you are. See who is topping each division, who is defying the odds and who is crazy enough to attempt this race with nothing more than a stand up paddle board.

A suit that will be able to keep you dry in the conditions set before these racers. It’s almost become synonymous with the race itself. Ocean Rodeo is proud to be the drywear of choice on the R2AK. Built to be adaptive to varying conditions the Ignite ensures the R2AK racers won’t overheat in calmer conditions, and will stay dry when they turn for the worst.

Ocean Rodeo had an absolute strong showing this week in Viana do Castelo, Portugal as the GKA’s Kitesurf World Tour held its third event of the season. The event had no choice but to move at a frantic pace as windless conditions forced the tournament to be conducted in just a single day. Ocean Rodeo proved to be up to the task as Carla Herrera and Reece Myerscough were eager to hit the waves since landing in Portugal the week prior.

The Rookie Reece Continues to Shine

 

Reece displayed what his board could do both on the waves and behind the scenes. Reece’s custom board allowed him to win one of his heats, and perform never before seen technicality in front of the judges through the event. Knowing that there is some growth ahead, and the next event upcoming in Tarifa there is a real sense that the GKA rookie is settling in and poised to make some real noise for the back half of the series.

Carla Goes on a Tour de Force

Carla was zoned in and determined to make up ground in the overall standings as she made one amazing run to cap off the women’s event. After a heartbreaking first heat loss she then went on an absolute tear winning the next eight straight heats to place third. With this win she’s closed the gap between her and Ines Correia and in prime position to be in the top three this year.

With the next event in Carla’s hometown of Tarifa both Ocean Rodeo team riders are more than motivated to show what no excuses kiting looks like and to keep stunning the competition.
