Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) began in the 1960s and has recently become very popular. Surfers use stand up paddleboards for training, photographers use SUPs to position themselves for great pictures, and others use SUPs for recreation and sport. Its popularity is most likely attributed to how easy it is to learn and get started since beginners can become comfortable and confident in under an hour of training and practice. Stand up paddle boarding is also incredibly popular with women. Some surfers have even switched to stand up paddle boards because it allows them to get into position to catch waves much faster.
The Ocean Rodeo Ignite Drysuit features our revolutionary Captive Zip design (patent pending), the Ignite design has merged dry-suit water integrity with the comfort of traditional foul weather pant/jacket combinations. When worn in “full dry” mode, the Ignite is 100% dry – go ahead, jump in and play with the penguins. If conditions back off or you’re taking a break between sessions, the Ocean Rodeo Ignite Drysuit is quickly converted to “standby mode” by unzipping the dry zip and removing the neck seal. With the neck off and the over jacket zipped up, the Ignite provides ventilation and protection on par with leading two piece pant / jacket foul weather gear ensembles. The unique dry zip design allows zipping and unzipping while wearing your PFD (always wear a PFD).
Loaded with expedition style features, the Ocean Rodeo Ignite Drysuit is designed to be worn for extended periods of time above and beyond a quick after work session. Whether you are kiting through winter, expedition SUP’ing, or testing your limits sailing across the Atlantic, the Ignite delivers the highest levels of comfort, durability and all weather marine protection, blurring the line between dry-suits and foul weather gear. As added security we’ve added a “wader” belt at the waist to restrict water entry into the lower suit due to accidental submersion when worn in standby mode.
Other premium features include padded knees, removable neoprene lined hood with fast drainage design, attached soft socks, recoil Velcro cinches at wrists and ankles. The Ocean Rodeo Ignite Drysuit is fitted with a one- atmosphere jacket zip, storm cuffs and ankles and an ultra-high all weather collar.
