2012 Captive Zip Self donning Dry-Suit.
Innovative over jacket compression flaps delivers self donning dry zip design resulting in unrestricted shoulder mobility for Kite, SUP, Windsurf and Sailing. The over jacket compression flaps can also be zipped up to break the weather while the neck seal is removed, a comfortable option before and apres' session. (also known as stand by mode)
2011 FST - Forward Swept Wing
FST Wingtip technology increases a kites wind range and turning speed by increasing the distance from the front lines to the back lines. Water relaunch is made via the unique wingtip shape breaking surface tension between the LE tube and water.

2006 GO – Joe™ leash-less kite board recovery tool.
US Pat No 8,142,248
2005 Lock and load leg straps: Session Harness
This is the design that started the category of “hybrid” harness. More comfort, adjustability and durability than any harness ever developed. Wear it as a waist or seat fit.
2005 Harness Handle Pass Quick Release
Quick Release - Simply pull the red eject handle next to the harness hook and you'll be free.
2004 C3 Conical Constant Curve Leading Edge
The most precise, strongest leading edge available.
2004 Shock Strip and Dacron Skeleton
We raised the bar again for durability; kites can withstand the new school moves.
2003 Maximum concave boards
Once again, kite boarding is all about holding and edge. What better bottom shape than a giant 18mm concave. The Mako has proved year after year to the ultimate, high speed- carving machine.
2002 Flex boards
We recognized very early that kite boarding was an edging sport. Board construction should be based on snowboard and ski technology, rather than surfboards. We pioneer flex tip to tail, and torsion twist.
2001 Punch-OUT Bar Activated Chicken Loop Release.
US Patent 6691954
2001 Variable Aspect Ratios sizing of Kites
We changed the outline and power distribution of each kite size, to offer similar handling and trim characteristics throughout the size range.
2000 Swept Anhederal Foil Concept
Tested and flown in 1999, we knew this concept had great potential, however the market at this time was set on C shaped kites.
1999 C2 Constant Curve Leading Edge
Non-segmented leading edge tubes, equals better load distribution, minimizing the possibility of kite failure. Improved aerodynamics and durability.
1999 Dacron tubes and Dacron framework
The tube kite market at this time used mylar/nylon fabric for tubes. Ocean Rodeo was the first to use Dacron tubes kite and Dacron reinforced seams to set a new standard durability.
