Predictable Performance In Unpredictable Conditions
Kiting in gusty, highly variable wind is dangerous and unpredictable and is not recommended by Ocean Rodeo. However, we know there are high wind locations around the world and an element of highly skilled riders who live for the challenge of taming such places.
Rather than just being a shrunken version of an existing model, the Storm is designed from the ground up, making it different from most small kites. Built tough with extensive Dacron reinforcements, 5 struts and FST wingtips to maintain the Storm’s structural integrity in extreme conditions. The tow-point is tuned so that the kite stays balanced during gusts to prevent overflying. The turning speed is paced to match the natural lines of a hard carving kiteboard while the power delivery remains smooth in volatile winds.
The Storm incorporates over 11 years of design know-how to deliver predictable performance on big wind days. If you have the commitment to face the gnarliest conditions, be smart enough to ride with the best equipment available.
Translates to bigger, more floaty boosts and a more forgiving, efficient kite that generates even more power. Back flying in light, gusty wind is a thing of the past, and experts can unhook without having to depower the kite first!
Its all about leverage between your front and back lines. By extending the wingtip forward we’ve created the extra leverage necessary to snap the kite through a turn.
By moving the front line attachment forward we offer you more range and depower.
FST wingtip breaks the surface tension during water relaunch providing a smooth predictable lift off.
Designed to fully roll over and disable your kite in the event of an eject or total depower. The Direct De-power System allows for near total depower of your kite and easy, on water reset and relaunch in the event of an eject. Ideal for riders of all levels, beginner to pro.
