FREERIDE & SURF ENTHUSIASTS!
Incorporating FLITE Technology, the all new 3rd Generation Prodigy is lighter and more nimble than ever, all while maintaining its now legendary flight stability and ease of handling.

Built around a robust 3 strut design, our most popular & best selling kite to date comes by its success honestly. Featuring a massive wind range and incredible flight stability the Prodigy is an ideal choice for kiters looking for the perfect freeride or wave kite. 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.

Comments:
The Prodigy is a really friendly kite, suitable for 90% of the kiters out there.
you will love it, if you are riding waves or free riders that love to go big.
especially on gusty or spots with a heavy current.

if you are in to mega loops and freestyle, the prodigy will do it. but there are better kites out there.

this kite is both oldschool that wave. Point Equally important, the hang time is amazing, enough to feel like Toby or a king of the air participant.
