New products from Ocean Rodeo – introduced at Surf Expo 2016

16 09 2016

Ocean Rodeo News:

Stick Shift Control Bar & 4 other exciting new products at Surf Expo!

Ocean Rodeo Stick Shift featuring R3 Designs’ internal trim adjustment.

Fine tune your kite’s trim using one easily reached and adjusted control knob. Small, quarter turn increments add power; bump or nudge to depower. Intuitive and easy to use by any size rider and ensures you have ‘hands on’ control when depowering the kite.

The unique, lightweight U shaped bar design ensures rapid flushing of all sand and debris while offering easy inspection and access to all moving parts for in-the-field repairs.

Our adjustable sliding stopper ball needs no special tools or set screws to hold in place and can be adjusted while on the water or riding. Stick Shift internal trim adjustment means no front line swivels, no rings, no cleats, no flopping trim line that’s forever out of reach. It also means the front lines are clear for a safe and secure front line re-ride every time.

Rainy season slim chance update

6 09 2016

We may be ok this weekend!

There’s been a bit of wind this week – sometimes 20 mins sometimes 2hrs, but today is looking quite nice. Hopefully it will be more regular towards the weekend.

Maybe maybe!!

Rainy season slim chance wind update

8 06 2016

aka: lessons in thermals….
Looks like we may have kitesurfing wind for a little longer. it’s a pure thermal, so it doesn’t show up on the forecast at all. well it shows up in the direction, but not the windspeed numbers. i look at the direction arrows more than the numbers. actually a little bit of offshore wind high up (1km or so) will assist the thermal in forming, as it helps the return of hot air offshore so it can sink and come back inshore. too much gradient wind doesn’t help, it just all comes down to earth and we get offshore or no wind here. it’s a delicate balance so it’s very very difficult to predict. but the last few days we’ve had 10-14kts for a couple of hours, and no rain, so hopefully we’ll get a few more days of it.
fri/sat looks ok, sunday maybe, we’ll have to see. a lot can change in a couple of days…

Perfect March thermals starting in Pranburi soon!

3 03 2016

The forecast looks great!
And for once I do believe it – it’s been generally rubbish at forecasting – but this looks very regular.
We like!!

The southerly season is starting early!

14 01 2016

It’s been a bit mixed recently – some great days – some days at 5kts.

The forecast is not reliable at the moment either – maybe 30% accurate at best. Don’t rely on it too much – send me a mail and I’ll give you my Airstylers Guesscast 🙂

Forecast for the moment is – this weekend is looking good!

Wow! Looks like Christmas week is going to be a good week!

16 12 2015

15-20kts for the foreseeable future. We like!!!

There is a huge typhoon over the Philippines at the moment, so that may screw things up a bit, but it’s impossible to predict how it will move over the next week. maybe it will increase our wind? or maybe it will turn south and not come anywhere near us. maybe!! we’ll just keep an eye on it…
