Hi,

I wanted to know, if anybody can compare/has experienced both kites in 7-8m for kiting in waves and foil?
Thanks
Eleveight WS is not only better than the sst but I’d argue the best wave kite on the market right now, bar none. That thing is amazing. Especially the 2020

And what about turning radius. Nobody seem to fly the ws. Nearly no pix or footage of a fying ws online found.

Checkout this guy, he has many more videos with WS on fb:

Mostly side/bit side-off winds so not much steering needed.

For an on-shore clip:


As you can see the kite is very stable and agile at the same time. Turning radius is very tight without generating too much power. You can adjust turning radius on the bridle.


Hope this helps!
