The Surfboards

OCEAN RODEO JESTER 2.0

Never ones to stick to the usual mold when it comes to board design (with twintips like the Mako and Duke at the heart of the collection), this philosophy has been carried over into Ocean Rodeo’s directional line up.

The construction is absolutely exquisite and more than justifies

The Fish arrived in the Duotone line up a couple of seasons back, and broke the mold of what we expect to see from a kite surfboard. Despite its shape it wasn’t strapless freestyle focused; it had a full ‘twin fin’ style outline but had three fins, and – perhaps most importantly – it didn’t
