ELEVEIGHT KITES WS V3 MODEL | SURF KITE | DRIFT | FOIL | POWER ON-DEMAND | PIVOTING TURNS | UPWIND
Here comes the all new Eleveight 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 kite 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!Peter Stiewe - Eleveight Kite Designer

‘Surf’ is the essence of our WSeries kite’s origin. This is the wing Eleveight CEO and designer Peter Stiewe rides when slicing through the faces of Portuguese slabs, dropping into South African wedges or hitting the lips of Brazilian walls. It combines pivotal turning with extra smooth power generation and unmatched downwind drift - its performance was proven in maxed out Nazaré but also transfers to small wind swell at everyday spots. The third generation is equipped with our new trimmable five-point bridle system and comes with a flattened arc that improves the low end strength while optimizing the power generation in pivotal turns. We also increased the sweep of the wing tips, strengthened the seams and upgraded to the latest XT material by Teijin for the leading edge and struts. The WS is your ticket to the green room.
The WS is a kite for surf experts and those seeking to become one.
