BEST Team Rider Ben Jopling Feedback
The ROCA has quickly turned into my weapon of choice for boosting big air. The jumping capabilities of every size kite in the ROCA is amazing. The smooth, quick turning and solid, controllable, steady power makes these kites produce some of the best jumps ever. The height I can reach with the ROCA is outstanding and has given me some of the best air time ever. The ROCA produces such floaty jumps and even from great heights I can land softly on the water, but I also still have immediate power to ride away.
In addition to experiencing these increased positivities from the ROCA kites, it has been great to use the WOO Sports Device to monitor and verify the statistics I I am feeling with the kites. The WOO has also pushed me to progress my understanding of boosting and has helped me reach my full potential personally. With my equipment, I was able to reach the top of the North American Leaderboards, which was a fantastic feeling. I know with these tools, I will constantly be able to push myself and process my capabilities and always move forward!

Whos the 2016 BEST ROCA for?
Any kiter looking to get the best bang for the buck! The only draw back from the ROCA after our Dream Team test was its a little slow to work as a wave kite but that’s why the Cabo is a dominate wave specific kite. If progression is in your future the 2016 BEST ROCA will surly take you to new heights…
