You guys (and girls) know that feeling when your mother said to you: “I’m not angry, im just a bit sad and dissapointed.” ?

That’s how i feel today angry

Why?

This is why:



(wazzaah, I slightly moderated the title from “a bit sad” to what it is now. For those unaware of what brother Wazzaah is sad and dippy about: he was hoping for a nice and officially prepared introduction of the 2012 smashing gear line-up, when he found someone in NL (where else?) had coincidentally discovered the “dealers eyes only” 2012 gear PDF on the internet, and posted images on a Dutch forum.
Cheers, Rudo)

Yeah I was wondering how long it would take for someone to find the whole 2012 lineup. I was searching for something on the ‘11 Razor the other day and wrote in 2012 by accident and all of the kites came up on a PDF.

mmm yeah that was a bit of a google underestimate for JZ smile. Some smart guy on a Dutch forum was harmlessly googling for some info and found the whole shobang. And posted right away.
This was supossed to not leak until a couple of weeks from now. I’m expecting a bit more official announcement by the OR officials…
But those PHAT wingtips… FST! I’m told it rocks. Anyone from the Sherman Island demo can confirm this, there should have been some prototypes around?

Well you can now all google for 2012 :D

What about this one? Ocean Rodeo Diablo Pro Venturi III 3 2012 ??? or has that become the Cypher?

As far as I have understood the Cypher is an entry level kite with great park (kickers & slides if I name it correctly) properties. So likely to be targeted at unhooked riders, but as such suitable for new riders with stable and easy handling, not as turbo charged as the venturi kites.
Rise and Razor are more advanced, no venturi on the Cypher. All my info is incomplete and premature, let’s wait for John and Evan to kick in!

Hello,

I am ‘the someone’ Rudo is referring to in wazzaah’s first post and I am sorry, but, honestly, all I did was google Ocean Rodeo 2012 and the complete PDF came up.

Ofcourse the first thing I thought was wow, amazing, and, being a naive customer who likes to see new stuff: lets share!

Very cool new gear. I am dying to see what this stuff does. .........and some posts a couple of months ago said Ross had spent most of the R&D time on the 2012’s refining slight tweaks and SURFING. HAH!! The “intrigue” these OR guys are able to spin!

I’m thinking the leak could be a pretty smooth way to ‘release’ the information about the new line…..

.......a sort off “backdoor”, sly practice for the marketing professionals to introduce to the market with skullduggery and espionage.

16 months of hard work and testing has gone into the 2012 kite line up.
16 months.
Think about it.
I did, and then I put in my order for a new 10m Rise.
I think its the most rad kite OR has ever conceived and its coming soon.

Sixteen months… One year and four months… Almost one and a half year… I´m thinking…

So, it would be true if i say that the 2012 model is a 2010 design!!!

saw this a couple of weeks back courtesy of Z.  i’ve taken the plunge ordered a 10 razor already. i REALLY hope its going to be as sexy to fly as it looks.. is it just me or it the 2012 a LOT more c shaped a la north vegas, thruster etc.

incidentally, anyone know someone who wants to buy a 2009 10m rise complete? :D

Well, joke maybe but you hit the nail right on the head! It’s commonly believed that designers look at the market and then “borrow” the ideas they like, yet in the real world (good) designers are busy conceiving what will hit the market several years later!

talking about journalist duty, the pdf is still available online…

searching for ocean rodeo 2012 the first hit will be the pdf.
clicking it will lead to a Ocean Rodeo not available page… but… clicking on fast view will still give you the pdf.. (google cache)
