ELEVEIGHT MASTER KITEBOARD | FREESTYLE | WAKESTYLE | POP |
The Commander is a new board in the Eleveight lineup that has been turning heads across the industry. In its first year of production, it has won the Kite Mag's Ultimate Test Freestyle Kiteboard Category!
An entirely new board, the Commander, is the flagship of our commitment to freestyle riding. Every inch of this ultra-durable construction is perfected to shred hard and pump out handle pass tricks. It also rules when it is ridden in storms for big airs. The combination of A-grade Paulownia wood and a layer of Triax Carbon Composite provides the stiffness and control to hold the edge no matter the load. Once released the flex catapults the rider out of the water with an enormous pop. The elaborate Tri-channel design allows the rider to hit the water even without the included 30 mm G10 fins as they already offer plenty of grip. Its performance, though fierce, is easy to access, so popping this board comes naturally even for
those who are just starting with freestyle tricks. The Commander is shaped to rule any spot.

From The Kite Mag's Ultimate Test Report:
The Eleveight Commander's aggressive looks from its heavily channelled bottoms to its medium multi-stage rocker are the reason it excels at freestyle riding. The thick 3D box rails and heavy channelling facilitate a strong tracking and speed before loading up for a big pop. The Commanders pop is gracious and predictable all thanks to its carbon stringer and flex points but it is not to be underestimated by how quick it wants to release.
The Commander's ability to adapt to the heavier conditions has to be commended. Its channelling tanks you upwind so tacking back after a huge maneuver isn't a killer on the legs and the flew point work effortlessly to soften the landings. Eleveight's fundamental development of this board really compliments the versatility of their FS kite. Instead of aiming this board at one specific discipline, Eleveight have taken a realistic approach to what a rider wants so they can capitalize on all the conditions available.
The Commander is the ideal board for the rider who wants to be out shredding no matter what. With a pair of boots, the commander will push your freestyle while still going huge on the windy days with no sacrifice in either discipline.
