The WSeries reflects our long journey and the search for the perfect wave kite. Everybody at Eleveight is passionate about surfing, with and without kite. Designing the WS was a matter of heart and is the result of our experience and hard work.
The WS has the pivotal turning characteristics that are essential to a good wave kite. To achieve this, we centered the turning axis. This enables you to turn the WS on a dime. The narrow turning circle ensures a smooth power development that does not rip you off your surfboard. The extreme fast movements of the kite can easily be transferred into your riding to find your line, supporting you to do radical snaps and smooth carves where you want them. Furthermore, the centered turning axis stabilizes the drift, just as if flying the kite in the center. This comes in handy when you park the kite at the wind window to fully concentrate on surfing the wave. The medium aspect ratio is key ingredient for the stable downwind drift of the WS. Even in gusty conditions the kite will follow you down the line.
Everybody who touched the WS was impressed by his crossover capacity and what a fun kite this is to fly.

- Pivot turner
- Direct drift turn
- Extreme fast turn
The WS has its turning axis in the center this allows the kite to turn on a dime (pivot turn). Also it stabilizes the drift, similar as if you hold the kite in the center
- Stable downwind drift
- Gust absorbe
The medium aspect ratio is a key ingredient for its position in the wind window. The WS has an unmatched drift and a smooth power deployment.
