The Reo is designed specifically for surfing waves with a kite. Since first introducing this model into our line up in 2012 it has become an iconic surf kite. The Reo is advanced in design yet simple enough to let you focus on surfing the wave. Versatile performance makes all conditions, from on-shore slop to cross-off barreling reef breaks, fun and easy.
The relatively low aspect design combined with fast direct handling generates consistent power to get around sections in a wave. Finely tuned profiles and wing shaping offer unmatched drifting characteristics - as you ride down the line the Reo will float allowing more concentration lining up the next section. De-powering the Reo is smooth and efficient, canopy luff is progressive which means the kite maintains positive bar pressure and handling throughout the de-power throw range, making the kite very reactive throughout the range.
Hooked or un-hooked the Reo performs to any given task in the waves. Simply trim in with the de-power cleat before unhooking and the Reo will sit and fly perfectly, floating with your riding movements. If you prefer to ride unhooked often we suggest connecting the back lines to the longer knot position. If you want lighter or heavier bar pressure use the rear tabs on the tips where the back bridle lines attach.
As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory, using the highest quality materials suited for the job. The new Reo is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. The Reo is designed tough without the need of unnecessary cosmetic items that only add weight and drag which reduce performance.
Due to customer feedback the return of a 4m size Reo further completes the line up offering more selection for critical rider preferences. 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.
