2019 Eleveight WS Kiteboarding Kite
The 2019 Eleveight WS Kiteboarding Kite is a true wave kite. It is a very light but tough three strut kite with a four line Open-C Hybrid design matched with a medium aspect ratio. We centered its turning axis to create its distinctive pivotal turn. The WS easily whips around in a narrow circle without ripping you off the board. The bar pressure is light while the steering is precise and direct. That allows you to fully concentrate on the wave.
The WS is made to drift. You can park it at the edge of the wind window, ride the wave and even overtake without worrying that it will fall from the sky. That feature came in handy when Nuno Stru used the WS to set the official world record for the biggest wave ever ridden with a kite.
The power generation is very smooth and also favored by freeriders and foil riders. It covers a huge wind range and easily rides upwind. As it has to withstand being washed, we constructed it super tough and using solely highest quality materials such as the new X4 Ripstop canopy made by Techno Force™ from Japan and the new Teijin Dacron with high-temperature resin finish.
The WS is a kite for surf experts and those seeking to become one.
