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.
Design details: 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.
The Litewave Wing Kiteboard has evolved into the ultimate light wind machine! Riding in ultra light wind has never easier, even for the big guys. The Litewave Wing Kiteboard tip-to-tip radical concave smooths out chop and makes for a very positive carving feeling. The Litewave Wing Kiteboard tips are very thin and flexy with built-in torsion bars to maximize carving performance under load. This board is truly a "session saver".

The wider tips give an unbelievable "load and pop" even in light condition. This 2013 Litewave Wing Kiteboard feels like snowboarding in bottomless powder. Our quality wood core and composite construction enhance riding properties as well as ensuring that your board will last for years to come.
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.
Choosing the right kiteboard can be harder than it sounds since there are so many brands and so many options to choose from. Kite boards are made of wood, foam, or a composite. There are directional boards which are meant to be ridden one direction only more like a surf board. There are also wakeboard type boards that can be ridden both directions, and even hybrid boards. Twin tip boards are best for beginners since they are the easiest to learn on because they can be ridden in either direction. Kite-Line offers all types of boards from many different brands like Cabrinha, Crazyfly, Liquid Force, Litewave, Slingshot, and more to give our customers plenty of options to choose from.
