Reviews for the 2015 REO on the internet and in kite mags provide accurate information highlighting this wave kite’s attributes; fast, direct handling generating consistent power with a sweet low aspect shape that will drift with you down the line. All true. This year I chose the REO after a four year stint on wave-specific delta kite which I selected purely for the purpose of wave riding. I liked the deltas, they go upwind like crazy and stay connected to the wave. If you’re into boosting, they do that well too. What was missing was turning performance so rather than re-hash available reviews, I wanted to write one that highlighted my reasons for switching.
