Ocean Rodeo Kiteboarding
Ocean Rodeo is a Canadian based kiteboarding company founded by Richard Myerscough and Ross Harrington in 2001. Ocean Rodeo is located in Victoria, BC, Canada.
In the 1970s came the explosive popularity of windsurfing. Ross pioneered windsurfing on Vancouver Island, which he then taught to Richard in 1977. Ross went on to win numerous Canadian and US titles and designed and developed windsurf sails during the sport's hey-days of the 1980s.
Richard represented Canada at the 1988 Olympics in Windsurfing and won numerous national, European and world titles along the way. After competition, Richard went immediately into business, manufacturing and designing drysuits and wetsuits for all types of water sports.
Ross and Richard were caught by the kite bug in the late 1990s. Ross made his first kite in 1998 and Richard produced the first Pyro Drysuit soon thereafter.
With the mix of skill and experience to launch a brand, and the intensity and passion that comes from lives spent in the wind and water, Ocean Rodeo was officially born.
Today, Ocean Rodeo boldly continues to brave new waters. The company has grown into new markets and now exports its product to over 50 countries around the world. And it is still just the beginning.
