ELEVEIGHT KITES WS V2 MODEL | SURF KITE | DRIFT | FOIL | POWER ON-DEMAND | PIVOTING TURNS | UPWIND

Eleveight Kites brings you the WS kite.  The WS was created for highest performance in wave kiting. Hence it whips around in a pivotal turn, comes with easy to control power and has a very stable downwind drift. The Open-C Hybrid design is combined with a medium aspect ratio that also makes it a favourite with foil riders. It has the DNA of a true wave kite and feels at home in small waves as much as in +60 ft in Nazaré, Portugal.

Although you may think that the WS stands for wave shredding machine, but we do recommend the WS to new riders as well.  Newer riders will appreciate the WS' amazing relaunch, flight stability, turning and even jumping.  Yes, this kite jumps nicely as well!

    Design Vision 

    The Eleveight WSeries model 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 Techno Force™ X4 Ripstop canopy and the new Teijin Dacron with high-temperature finish.


    The WS is a kite for surf experts and those seeking to become one.

    Available colours are grey, green and blue, however, colour selection is subject to availability.
