After a successful introductory year the 2010 Ocean Rodeo Go-Joe is promising to be everything we ever needed. Stronger, better, lighter, and easier to use. A great idea and an innovative product that is moving from beginners to wave riders and mainstream users. If you don't have one it's worth to check it out.
Traditional surfboard style leashes used to connect kiters with their boards have proven to be dangerous in both the water and on land. The GO – Joe™ is a new “leash free” tool to assist in the retrieval of your kiteboard without fear of being impacted or impeded by a leashed board. The GO – Joe™ is perfect for beginners and intermediates learning board recovery techniques. Advanced riders will appreciate the faster board recovery in extreme conditions or while learning new tricks.
What is it?
The GO – Joe™ is an inflatable tube structure attached to deck of the kiteboard that uses the natural forces of buoyancy distribution and wind to roll you kite board right side up and accelerate it down wind. These features combined with high visibility and additional floatation will make the use of surfboard style leashes in kiteboarding obsolete.
1. The unique hour glass design of the inflatable tube structure places the self righting buoyancy at a high pivot point. This distribution of flotation will power roll your board right side up if it lands foot straps down in the water, (foot straps down create drag, slowing the boards drift)
2. With the board right side up and foot strap resistance eliminated, the GO – Joe™ is positioned on the board forward of center allowing the wind to turn and sail the GO – Joe ™ down wind towards the rider. If the rider maintains their position with the kite at the zenith the board will simply sail downwind towards you.
3. The hour glass shaped design of the GO – Joe™ fits comfortably between the riders feet and does not restrict mobility. The hour glass shape also eliminates drag caused by spray from the boards rails
4. The GO – Joe™ is very light and durable using our proven manufacturing techniques.
Construction and durability:
1. The inflatable tubes are manufactured with the same techniques and materials used on our kite tubes. 110 micron PU inner bladder with HD Nylon outer cover. Bomber!
2. Deck mounting plate uses the same construction as our foot pad deck plates.
How to install the GO – Joe™
1. Simply screw the GO – Joe™ into the grab handle inserts found on any board. Pump-up the GO – Joe™ tube, and you are ready to ride! Deflate the GO Joe™ for easy storage and transport.
2. One size fits all; available in high visibility orange and yellow.

Over a year of R&D in Mauritius, California, and Florida led Litewave to develop Quad Surf wave board. It is designed for the waves. A pulled in bat-tail outline and a faster-gun style rocker allows this board to really drive through and keep speed in the bottom turns, while the quad-fin configuration gives incredible grip for snappy off-the-lips.
The quad fin also makes for a wave board with limitless top end speed yet very snappy and responsive feel unlike other thruster configurations which are slower.
The Quad Surf has been built to really withstand the abuse that a kite rider will give it. Machined EPS core is wrapped with wood-veneer/glass/epoxy composite laminate to provide impact resistance and the optimum strength-to-weight ratio.

The Flysurfer Radical4 Kiteboard lives up to its name. Even sportier than its predecessor, the Flysurfer Radical4 Kiteboard is available on the market in four sizes. The Flyboards-Development team surrounding Andreas Hanrieder and Eddy Lansink did an excellent job, optimizing the Flysurfer Radical4 Kiteboard in practically all regards. The first priority was the switch in production center from Asia to Europe, which led to a higher quality of workmanship. Once this was implemented, a stronger differentiation of the range could be undertaken, whereby each board was tuned individually to riding weight and range of use.
Flysurfer Radical4 Kiteboard New Changes
1. New combination of wood-foam core
2. Torsion Fibre Layers
3. Heelside Channel
4. Tucked-under Edge
The additional Grabrails are absolutely soft, but still offer the best control for board-offs or one-footers. Thus, holding the board has become much easier. The Grabrails can easily be glued to the deck.
6. Straps & Pad
The new straps have a simple and quickly-adjustable Lace-System, previously proven with the wakeboard bindings. The enormous adjustment range provides a range of use from shoe size 38 (barefoot) to shoe size 48 (with neoprene boots).
Flysurfer Radical4 Kiteboard Features
|All Radical4s have a hybrid core, aimed at achieving a maximum harmony of board weight, performance and durability. A foam core comes into use on the toe side in the longtitudinal direction, providing a significant reduction in weight. On the side with more load, the heel side, a robust wood core is used, guaranteeing break stability and the dynamic recovery force of the board.|
|The innovative assembly of a unidirectional woven layer lengthwise and an additional woven layer (torsion layer) at a 45-degree-angle achieves considerably higher torsion stiffness, which is reflected in the increased jump performance with nevertheless good comfort.|
|The deep Heelside Channel provides good grip and makes it possible to set the edge more effectively for jumping.|
|The „Tucked-Under“ Edge has been cut off at a 45-degree-angle, as surfboards have been manufactured traditionally. This makes the board well-controllable, even in choppy conditions.|
|The additional Grabrails are absolutely soft, but still offer the best control for board-offs or one-footers. Thus, holding the board has become much easier. The Grabrails can easily be glued to the deck.|
|All of our boards have a special high-quality UV- and scratch-resistant coating, and thus offer a long product life. The design is protected under the coating, so that it does not get damaged if the board is slightly scratched.|
|The asymmetrical rounder and shorter toeside outline increases control when riding toeside and provides increased comfort.|
|Wider Insert Positions make it easier to land. There are three different stance options possible - Small (50.4 cm), Normal (56.2 cm) and Wide (61.2 cm).|
