An important day!

18 02 2017

This is it! The best day of the season!

Why? Because there’s no wind!

Huh? What you talkin’ about Col?

Because the Southerlies are starting! And we all love the Southerlies. Steady winds, hot temperatures, big beaches. The best time of year to learn!
Since I have been here, overĀ 8 years now, we have had one year when the wind switched in 2 days, and one year when the wind switched in 3 weeks. The other years were in between, but usually it takes around a week. This year it’s switching today. One day! Awesome! It’s taken it’s time, usually the Southerlies are well in by mid February, and this year we still had Northerlies last week. So that’s a bit strange, but not to worry, the Southerlies are here! Shall I say it again? The Southerlies are here! We’re all very excited about this šŸ™‚

wind for the weekend!

9 02 2017

looks like a nice bit of wind coming this weekend – 12-16kts from the north east. we should get 5 days of wind, although the 1st and 5th will be weak. but no complaints! the thermals haven’t started yet so any wind we get is good wind!

A nice week of wind coming up

18 01 2017

Looks like the north wind is coming back nicely! After a brief period of uncertainty due to the storm that’s just passed over, it’s back to normal! Well as normal as normal ever is.

I’m expecting 12-20kts for the next week or maybe more. Should take us to the end of Jan, then it will all stop and hopefully the Southerlies will come in February!

merry christmas!!

22 12 2016

well christmas is coming! but the wind…. hmmm maybe…. maybe not.

the forecast is very unreliable when there’s not much windspeed, so hopefully it’s wrong. i’m sure it will be light over the christmas weekend, but hopefully 8-12kts? 8kts is not so good, but 12 is fine. and there will be no waves! great conditions for learning, as long as there is enough wind.

and then a bit of a blow coming in from wednesday – new year should be typically windy and sunny. nice!!!

lovely wind november 29 – december 5 in pranburi

28 11 2016

looks like we have some niceĀ northerlies!! at last!!

the highest point for wind will probably be friday, although the weekend looks great too. if you like waves that is, and as i love to say…. ‘we love waves!!!!’

have a look at the tidal chart here, normal high tide is about 2.2m and it’s going over 2.6m sat/sun. that means big waves and lots of current! all fine if your kit is well taken care of, and you avoid the sandbanks.
awesome fun if you have a surfboard šŸ™‚

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 featuringĀ R3 Designs’ internal trim adjustment.

Fine tune your kiteā€™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 ā€˜hands onā€™ 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 thatā€™s forever out of reach. It also means the front lines are clear for a safe and secure front line re-ride every time.
