Re: Eleveight kites

It powers when you need it too, yet feels slack when I need it to. Last year's bar was pretty average but it looks better this year. In s...

Are the Cabos still around or did that design go with the other brand?
The designer went to Eleveight. If you liked the Cabo, then the WS will be the upgrade. They are amazing kites!!

Re: How dangerous is this?

Wrap the kids in cotton wool. Stick em in a warm cosy environment with a tv and iPad.
