3666307205Introducing the 2014 Ozone REO kite – A wave riding legend in the making.

The 2014 Ozone REO is designed purely for waves and surf board riders, this is a dedicated wave riders kite designed to have fast handling, float down the line, good relaunch, mega de power and plenty of power to get you back up to the line-up.

So what changed? The REO is still an excellent wave rider’s kite and still delivers perfection when the water goes vertical. You can still rely on the Ozone REO to float above you as you charge the line but in the 2014 version there’s better feedback through the bar and Ozone have listened to the demo riders and upped the overall power making the 2014 Ozone REO even better than ever.

The Reo is a very unique kite in our line up, designed specifically for wave riding with true surfing at it’s heart. Since first introducing the Reo we have had nothing other than positive feedback and it has become the iconic surf kite.

The 2014 REO from Ozone comes in these sizes: 5m, 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m and 12m. They have three colour options and they are either red, black, white and green or yellow, black, red and green or blue, black, red and white.

What do Ozone say about the new REO?

Behind the scenes we have been continually developing this model looking to improve it’s overall performance for wave riding. We believe in freedom on the wave to take us closer to a true surfing experience. To achieve this we have to combine many aspects of kite design to develop a kite that has huge depower, smooth fast direct handling, float when slack lined and perfect drift for down the line and onshore riding.

The modifications to the new Reo have allowed us to improve stability and float, whilst maintaining controlled depower capabilities, this allows the rider to depower to the point where surfing is closer to reality rather than being powered along a wave. The root chord has been slightly increased delivering consistent power to get around sections in the wave, whilst easily floating down the line when need be. With fast direct handling and improved low end the Reo allows the rider to maximise power in onshore conditions when the wave can ‘push’ downwind.

Hooked or un-hooked the Reo performs to any given task in the waves. For unhooked riding simply trim in slightly with the de-power cleat and the Reo will sit and fly perfectly, floating with the rider making it easier to line up that next section.

Another key aspect when building a kite specific for wave riding is the strength to weight ratio. As with all our kites we use top of the line materials and combined with our very own factory quality is second to none. The Reo is designed tough without the need of unnecessary cosmetic items which only add weight and drag which reduces performance.

New sizes complete the Reo line up offering more selection for those critical rider preferences. Power to size ratios have been refined and we now have more power per size. For example a rider enjoying the original 8m would now feel similarly powered on the new 7m. Be sure to take a test ride on the new Reo, here at Ozone we think all will be stoked with the performance and capabilities allowing you to push your wave riding to the next level.

Jurassic Raptor Pro Kite-Board

Jurassic Raptor Pro Kite-Board

Fossil hunters from the Dorset institute of Palaeontology have discovered the remains of a beautifully preserved Raptor Pro Ltd edition kite-board on the Jurassic coast island of Portland close to Weymouth. The specimens, totalling three Raptors, measured some 132 cm to 140 cm.  Interestingly, the animals had razor sharp fins presumed to cut through water with little effort in pursuit of prey or big air. The fins located in each corner of the Raptor specimens are about 3 to 5cm in length and from the shape of them once these were hooked into the prey there was nothing that could remove them!

Carbon dating the Raptors proved difficult due to the fact that they are all carbon anyway. Unlike many other dinosaur specimens of the period the Raptor Pro was exceptionally light weight meaning it could effortlessly glide into the air and maintain colossal power.

The extremely rare Carbon Raptor Pro Ltd can be yours for the sum of £479.20 and that even includes delivery to the UK but don’t hang around – The RAPTORS are FAST..!

Pop along to the Southern Extreme Store on Portland and grab a beautifully preserved RAPTOR PRO LTD today while stocks last!

F-One ACID new shape for 2013

F-One ACID new shape for 2013

The F-One Acid 6 (VI) 2013 is for new school freestylers. Short and wide up to the tips, with extreme pop for better jumps and landings. Its double concave will suppress any leg splash and absorb vibrations during high impact landings. The F-One Acid 5 (V) allows sharp edging, great release and insane pop. Light, sharp and responsive under your feet, this board will get you launching huge tricks.

To meet the requirements of today’s freestyle, F-One engineers have altered the choice of materials: a new type of wood is used for its core to enhance the impact zones and better absorb shocks while maintaining an optimum weight. Combining the twist control to a double concave and V bottom gives the board all the qualities to be expected of a great freestyle board: flex, pop, control and strength. We have reduced the V to better control the speed.

The ACID is at its best for low kite moves and is forgiving during landing, even on non-flat spots. Light and lively under your feet, incisive, the ACID is compact and will put you in confidence to start new tricks.

Short and wide all the way to the tips, the F-One Acid 6 (VI) produces the best pop, greatly helped by the Dynamic Flex that gives right back the energy loaded during the take off. Well balanced on its rocker line and bottom shape, the Acid 6 (VI) is designed to facilitate landing and give your body a lesser impact.

The Direct Drive technology with full wood core, with its legendary resistance makes sure you can rely on your board at all times.

New school freestyle is the discipline where attention to the pads is essential. Low kite tricks will put a lot more energy on the landing and our 3D moulded Platinum Pads offer incredible comfort and energy diffusion.

The under heel area is made out of two foam density, the top part being softer to absorb the little shocks and the bottom part harder to soak up the big ones!

New for 2013 a new size in 134 x 42 cm wide! For 2013, F-one have also refined the 127 x 37 cm. We have given this size more flex to better fit shorter riders and women.

Who is the board designed for:

Whether you are just starting to get into freestyle tricks or just after an all-rounder peformer for speed, wave riding, jumping and freeriding – this board can do it all!

Riding Style: New School Manoeuvres

Skill Level: Beginner / Expert

F-One Acid Kiteboard – Length / Width:

  • F-One Acid 6 (VI) – 127 x 37cm (perfect for women)
  • F-One Acid 6 (VI) – 130 x 39cm
  • F-One Acid 6 (VI) – 132 x 40.5cm
  • F-One Acid 6 (VI) – 134 x 42.0cm

Features / Technology:

Simple Concave: Glide, comfort and carving are major aspects of your boards handling. The edge to edge single concave improves all 3 points.

To glide and accelerate you use the centre part of your board where the new concave is 4mm deep. This effectively flattens the rocker of the centerline for more efficiency. And when carving or on edge the concave increases the bite of the rails for more effective edging. You also gain in comfort with the concave cushioning any rough water to give a smoother feeling under your feet.

Combining a concave in the bottom part and a channel straightening the middle, the F-One Acid 6 (VI) gets instant planing, with huge upwind potential. The concave absorbs the chops and improves the grip. The tip channel enhances the water flow exit, and relieves pressure on the back foot, bringing an incomparable comfort.

Direct Drive:

Direct Drive refers to a board with minimum thickness, with 100% wood core and 100% fiberglass envelop. These elements are interrelated and create a coherent set answering the requirement of a high performances kiteboard.

With the Direct Drive F-One can obtain a very precise board, quick and active as it is able to erase the chops absorbs the energy and able to restitute all that in the best of timing. The feeling of riding in direct contact with the water is even greater, and the manufacturing quality is optimal.

100% Wood Core:

The core is the soul of the board; it is the key to the DIRECT DRIVE technology. Impossible to manufacture boards this thin 11mm in the center and only 3mm at the tips, without the help of wood core.

The flex, the dynamic response and the chocks and vibrations absorption provided by the wood core are unique and unequalled.

Dynamic Flex:

The board works for you and with you. You don’t suffer from the uneven surface of the water. The results: less effort on your legs, better aim control and better sensations.

ABS Inverted Rail:

The most outstanding improvement in the DIRECT DRIVE technology; is the flex. The board is no longer passive. It works for you and with you.

You no longer suffer from the uneven surface of the water. The results: less effort on your legs, better aim control and better sensations.

Complete with:

  • F-One Platinum Pro Adjustable Footpads
  • F-One Ergonomic Straplock Footstraps
  • G-10 Epoxy 5cm Fins with Leash Bar
  • Standard Grab Handle
