Ocean Rodeo One Design Championship (max. 80 competitors)

The first of its kind in 2015, Ocean Rodeo once again will hold a kiteboarding one design class competition in 2016. Competitors in this class will be provided their kite, control bar, and board for each heat.

With all competitors using identical equipment, the Ocean Rodeo One Design offers a true test of skill. The course will consist of a simple beach reach, a return tack upwind, followed by a short downwind slalom course to the finish.

Competitors will be placed in amateur, open, or women’s class depending on participant numbers and skill.

For the third consecutive year, Ocean Rodeo Windfest will be hosting this sanctioned national championship.

Competitors will be placed in amateur, open, or women’s class depending on participant numbers and skill.
