Ocean Rodeo HL Glide
Ocean Rodeo is made up of passionate surfers, kiters, foilers and, most recently, wing surfers. They recognized immediately after their first wing surf runs that a lighter, stiffer wing would increase all aspects of wing performance and ultimately make the sport easier and allow for improved performance for all levels and styles of riding. Cutting the weight of a wing in half vs. traditional Darcon air frame construction improves every aspect of a wing’s performance.
In collaboration with ALUULA, Ocean Rodeo is pleased to bring the composite materials revolution to wing foiling. Whether you’re generating insane speed and drive to take to the air or forgetting your wing as it flags out behind you on a wave, the Glide’s extreme low weight, smooth handling, and balanced design delivers the highest levels of performance.
Ocean Rodeo’s mission has always been to deliver the ultimate wind and water experience. With the recent explosion in the new sport of Wing Surfing their devotion to superior design and quality remains as laser sharp today as it was for the last 20 years. They have not rushed to enter the wing market with “me too” materials and designs. They are addicted to this new sport and, as always, have approached it as innovators who want to push the sport forward. The 2021 Ocean Rodeo Wing design brings 20 years of hard-earned manufacturing experience together with the revolution of ultra light and strong composite materials.
Developed in collaboration with ALUULA Composites, all Ocean Rodeo wings feature some level of this technology in their DNA. With these new composite technologies the sport of wing surfing has arrived at a very exciting time in the evolution of all things powered by wind. Their proven 20 year legacy combined with an “ultra light and strong” vision of the future remains committed to delivering the ultimate ride.
Featuring the industry’s first Hybrid air frame: ALUULA high pressure boom with rugged Dacron leading edge. The ultra light high pressure boom stays flying longer as you approach wind speed while wave riding.
- The entire Wing is 20% lighter than competing Dacron framed Wings
- The airframe boom is stronger and stiffer while also 50% lighter than Dacron booms!
The Hybrid Light (HL) Glide is the perfect first wing that will take you right up to launching in your first prolonged wave drifts and high speed airs.
The airframe is a blend of revolutionary ALUULA composite and Dacron, while the canopy features time tested and proven blends of polyester rip stops.
The HL Glide boom is built with an ultra light and strong ALUULA 82gsm composite material boom. The boom is 50% lighter than a Dacron boom and can withstand higher inflation pressure. This ultra light and stiff boom delivers instantaneous sheeting control, while stabilizing the canopy in gusts, keeping the air foil in its designed shape.
When dropping your back hand and surfing or making transitions, the ultralight trailing edge of the HL Glide Wing will stay flying longer than an entirely Dacron framed wing; delivering longer wave glides and making all wing handling maneuvers easier.
The leading edge is made with a rugged 160gsm Dacron. Both the ALUULA boom and Dacron leading edge use time tested and proven PU bladders.
