I have a couple questions. Hopefully someone can help.

I came off of the ncg build. Flashed nk2 build with ncg kernel thru Odin. I then flashed extreme syndicate v5 thru ss. Went into download mode and flashed the OA8 kernel thru odin. Now I cannot boot into recovery in ss. When I try to boot into recovery, the phone goes into a somewhat download mode with the "energy saver" logo. It runs thru some files and reboots into the rom. Any advice on getting into safestrap?

Biggest tip. Safestrap does not work with a lollipop kernel.

To get back into Safestrap from a lollipop ROM, you must flash a non-lollipop kernel FIRST (like NK2 kernel). Also make sure Safestrap is indeed installed. Since it already seems you understand how to use ODIN, I would recommend you just stick with that method.

If you're interested in faster methods which don't require a computer, do more research around the general S5 Verizon forum and look for SS flashable kernels. Do your research. Stay safe
