Eleveight Kites WS-series V2 2019 Wave/Freeride Kite
The WSeries 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 the new X4 Ripstop canopy made by Techno Force™ from Japan and the new Teijin Dacron with high-temperature resin finish.
The WS is a kite for surf experts and those seeking to become one.

Inspired by the roots...We have a strong passion for water sports. An urge to be out there. This manifests in the brand we created. Our main drive is our history and passion. Each and every member of our team is most comfortable when there is a board beneath the feet. Our inspiration comes from kiteboarding, surfing, skateboarding, wakeboarding, snowboarding and windsurfing.
In the process of building this brand we came across the word “elevate” which best describes our feeling while riding. We combined it with the “eight” that represents not only the fluid movement of a kite but furthermore our vision and spirit for infinity, harmony and sustainability.Eleveight was born.
