The prodigy is a set and forget style kite for those who want to worry more about riding the board than steering a kite. The Prodigy is perhaps the most well rounded kite in our quiver, suitable for almost any riding style. Medium bar pressure and slightly slower turning make the Ocean Rodeo Prodigy forgiving for beginners, and loads of fun for everyone in the surf.

The Prodigy is a great all around kite, suitable for beginner-intermediate riders. This kite is one of the most stable kites out there, you can really park and ride with the Prodigy. The stability is great for beginners learning their first water starts, or for those of us who like to concentrate more on riding the board than steering the kite.

The Prodigy boasts a lower aspect design, with a slightly swept wing that keeps the kite further back in the wind window. This window positioning makes the kite less sensitive to gusty conditions, and a lot more forgiving than higher aspect kites. The lower aspect also gives the Ocean Rodeo Prodigy a little more bar pressure, which requires more user input to turn aggressively. The Prodigy is a great first kite but don't let the easy handling fool you, the Prodigy is still loaded with hang time, which any level of rider can appreciate.


Freeride & Surf enthusiasts!

The Prodigy's 3 strut design is our simplest, easiest to fly kite yet! Built to be ultra stable and able to handle a massive wind range the Prodigy is an ideal choice for kiters looking for a predictable, easy to fly kite for freeride or use in the waves. With superb power delivery and a generous, forgiving feel the Prodigy delivers smooth turns and effortless big airs and hang time while sitting perfectly in the window and drifting with you when you're powered up and on a wave.

The Prodigy's short length bridles reduce the chance of bridle tangles while delivering steering input even when the kite is highly de-powered making tricky landing / launching conditions more manageable. Like all Ocean Rodeo kites the Prodigy features the Direct De-power bridle configuration, designed to fully roll the kite over in the event of an ejection or total de-power, providing maximum possible de-power.

Direct De-power
Designed to fully roll over and disable your kite in the event of an eject or total depower. The Direct De-power System allows for near total depower of your kite and easy, on water reset and relaunch in the event of an eject. Ideal for riders of all levels, beginner to pro.

 

Speed inflation
Get on the water faster with the speed inflation system.
Strut to leading edge connector tubes feature easy to use quick clamps for added security while riding.

 

Variable Line Length
Optimized performance with line lengths varying from 10m - 25m. Shorter lines result in direct, snappy feel and easier control. Longer lengths result in a larger power stroke and more loft.
