Eleveight WS V5 - any non sponsored reviews?

Postby Qman » Thu Oct 14, 2021 5:29 pm

I tried the new Eleveight WS V5 7m, it is a super nice kite surfing the waves.

However it was really unstable when powered up, going upwind with the wing tips almost jellyfishing.

I am unsure if I did not pump the kite hard enough, if the wind was super gusty or it was the kite.

Does anyone have experience of the WS V5 kite who is not sponsored / a dealer etc?

Many thanks

Maybe not relevant for a wave kite but I remember a friend testing a 8m couple of weeks ago as he needed a small kite for a day or two, his remarks were:
"it was the worst kite i used in recent memory, terrible for any kind of jumping and upwind"
to be fair he was on a TT trying to enjoy some strong winds and that is not the goal of the kite. He then switched to a 10m reedin supermodel when the wind become more manageable and couldn't be happier to go back

Absolut useless reply... It was the worst kite, ok, why ? Reasons ? Why you simply don't say it wasn't fitting to its needs of riding ? I have tried it and feel as being a very good and smooth kite, I also know many owners of WS that are really happy with it... Please if you have bad reviews, go into details and simply not bash a product without any explanation behind it...

I think I've seen less red flags on footages of Stalin parades.

But seriously, that video review of the WS is unreal.
