Designed by Mike Giblin and introduced in 2009, the Tempest has since been retired (2022). It’s hard to be modest when describing the Tempest – it’s born to run. Downwind there is nothing like it – effortless, fluid, perpetual. Incredibly nimble for an OC-2, it makes transitions easy.
Share the fun! It’s hard to describe the beauty of linking wave after wave to the uninitiated, but with the Tempest, you can just show them. Give someone a view of the race from the front of the pack. Log some me time and quality time with the kids. Teach someone the nuances of surfing, or coax a mentor to share some pointers.
