Ozone News:REO 2014 Reviews

Written by Ozone on . Posted in Industry News

Hi everyone,

Feedback is flowing in and we are super happy to hear from everyone enjoying their new REOs!

Check out the reviews below from team riders Nick and Tucker. More to come!

Team Ozone

“Just wanted to thank you guys a lot!! Yesterday my new Reo’s arrived and today I tried them!! It’s amazing how you guys did it but the kite is even nicer than the 2013 (that one was for me already perfect) Today I started on the 8m early in the morning wind was around 14 knots pretty light but doable..we had SW swell 2.5 mtr 15 sec so decent waves.. The waves where pretty quick, a lot of down the line kiting but not one moment of stalling with the 8m.. it drifts even better than before!!! I came back later in the afternoon and the wind was pretty strong.. around 30-32 knots gusty conditions, time for the 5m.. just amazing.. so stable and what a handling.. didn’t really ride the waves though because the waves were blown out but the feeling was super..THANKS again, super happy Reo fan!” - Nick Hendricks, Mauritius

“I’ve spent the last month at Namotu Island Resort in Fiji.  The set-up here is unreal and the kiting has been off the hook.  Namotu Left out in front of the island has consistent waves and blows side off on the regular afternoon trade winds.  It’s been the perfect place to fly the new Ozone REO’s.  The waves have ranged from double over head to head high and the kites are preforming great.  I’ve surfed my whole life and seek to find opportunities in kiting that allow me to surf when it’s windy.  The REO’s stability and down the line capabilities allow for the perfect mix between kiting and surfing.  The kite holds it’s position when set down the line and allows me surf without feeling the kite.  When I need a little more power off the bottom or the top a little bar pressure and the kites responsiveness give me what I need to make the section or complete the turn.  I’ve been using the 8 and 10 REO’s and I’m having a blast on both.  I’m super stoked on the kites and looking forward to a few more session as the swell and wind forecast is looking great for the next couple day.” - Tucker Patton, Fiji
