The WS is your ticket to the green room where riding waves has never been more accessible and fun. Its outstanding performance allows you to catch any wave with ease and automatically switches to auto-pilot just as soon as you drop in. Version 5 of our dedicated surf kite turns tighter without the need for force as the shorter bridle trim gives a reduced bar pressure feel. The Open-C hybrid three strut design provides power right when you need it and the new canopy load seam supports the profile to ensure stability. A reduction in weight this year also helps to ensure that when riding the face of a wave you’ll drift unobtrusively down the line.
The WSeries has the DNA of a true wave kite and feels at home in small waves as much as in +60 ft in Nazaré, Portugal, just as Stu Figueirido - Eleveight Team Rider and monster wave hunter!

The WS has exceptionally swift pivotal turning characteristics that enable you to pinwheel the kite without being ripped off the board. Automatically synchronizing with your surfing maneuvers allows you to hack the lip with extreme force, throwing massive spray, or make smooth flowing carves. The huge wind range adds to its accessibility making it a favourite for freeriders and foil addicts alike. The canopy curve provides optimum load distribution which expands the wind range, and the new 2 step force transition on the tips allows for constant power development. The redesigned frame structure between the inflatable parts and the ripstop also optimizes the load transition for improved stability and durability. Wave riders love the light, yet direct bar pressure and the speed in which the WS flies. The medium sweep in the wingtips gives great low-end performance and it’s aerodynamic design reduces flutter giving you a performance kite with the greatest longevity.
No matter the swell, the WS will make sure you’re ripping your best out on the water.
