Cynthia Brown >> REO Review
The Ozone REO is a dream machine for every kind of Surf-Style kiting. The three strut design translates to feather weight, which is crucial in those moments when the lines go slack, or the breeze is thin.
While riding down the line the kite fades deeper into the wind window allowing you to concentrate on working the wave rather then flying the kite. With the stock bar, the Reo is near impossible to back stall, which makes riding unhooked crazy easy.
The kite is so stable yet lightning fast through the turns. If you find your timing is off when hitting the lip or turning off the top, no problem as the Reo will be where you want it with just a flick of the wrist.
In the looping arena, there is no other contender. This kite loops so fast from it’s center with no delay, which is a must for landing sent strapless airs or low wind tacks. The ability to unspin your lines on the fly is also a bonus that many other control bars don’t offer.
Whether riding strapped, strapless, waves or chop, the Reo is a guaranteed grin maker, and is the ultimate tool to take everyone’s kitesurfing skills to the next level.
