The 2010 Rise is the ultimate all around free ride kite. Perfect for beginner to pro, the Rise delivers high performance over a huge wind range. 2010 refinements include larger leading edge panels at the wing tips resulting in increased projected area, and improved steering. Also new this year is our 6 strut construction designed to match the XPD panel lay out. Removal of the middle strut opens up the centre of the canopy and allows for better canopy definition and air flow through the vents. Platform construction gives the full size range of 2010 Rise kites a similar turning feel and speed.

Ocean Rodeo Rise

Just finished my 2nd session on the 11m Ocean Rodeo Rise and can't speak highly enough of this kite.

Having progressed from North Rhino 07 & 08 to Core GT 09, this kite seems to offer the best of both.

The Venturi system provides the kite with excellent stability, even in gusty conditions, and virtually eliminates back stalls.

The trim is located below the handle, which is a little stiff and quite hard to use under power, however, gives you an uncluttered view of your lines and means the depower throw can be as long as you like (upto a metre). Again this is great in gusty conditions as you can instantly depower upto the equivalent of a chicken loop release in some other kites.

The stopper is very effective and doesn't seem to slip. This means you can confidently set the position and trust it to hold. Front lines meet at a very effective swivel just above the extent of the depower.

Boosting was a little harder to figure out at first due to the light bar pressure. After a bit of trial and error I figured it out and was in awe of the height achieved. The kite seems to have an initial lift followed by a second, like a turbo kicking in. This leads to unbelievable hang time. This caught me off guard at first as I prepared for landing but kept going for another 4 seconds or so. I had to be more aware and watch out for down wind kiters as I was traveling much further in the air.

Loved the stopper in the inflate valve. Air in only. No precious PSI lost on removing the pump.

Overall very happy with my purchase. Got the 8m with small bar and the 11m with large bar. The bag is well made and easily fits every thing in, even with an untidy pack up.

First time using Ocean Rodeo kites and so far very impressed.
