Anybody riden the WS? In what sizes? What does it compare like? Drifter, Reo..?
Here´s a Short video of Nuno Stru, looks like it does more than just wave and drifting well. Seems like a good jumper as well. I have only tried it once and was in crazy storm so was more in survival mode than getting the full propper test, and on a borrowed kite...

Impressive!

A part from the jumping and kitelooping also very tight downloops! Very helpfull in waves.

Yes indeed, looks really nice! Looks like it does both waves and jumping far better than any wave kite from Peter so far! These are quite a lot of videos of it on Nuno Stru´s facebookpage.
No wind for a long time here now, but going to the west next weekend and will test the WS in propper conditions then it looks like :D
Can´t wait, tested it only briefly in a storm trying to survive haha Lucky a friend of mine have the whole quiver in WS so can´t wait!

Yeah, but only as a local team rider. Even had a better deal before but testing the FS (was perfect for my taste) and knowing the guys from way back (passionate, clever and trustworthy) I was sold!

Finally had a chance to dig through this thread ... killer review John and some great boosting. I rode my RS again last night and as having a blast in pretty light wind (13/14) on my 12m. Very impressed with this kite so far.

Well, a British surfer broke his back this week.. Nazare is insane. Wouldn’t even ride the jet ski for a winning lottery ticket. Ha! Would love to go watch though..

13/14kn on 12m?

Are we back in Cab days when 12m was actually much more? :naughty: Or, you're like 50kg on sb?

150 Lbs and a ton of time riding very light wind conditions ... that said, yes, its possible that the kite's dimensions are larger than a typical 12m. I gave back the 12 I was demo'ing and ultimately decided to go with the Rebel after trying a bunch of different kites. The RS was a close second but the Rebel is more oriented for my style.
