Sorry - comes without wind guarantee.
Sizes: 15, 13, 11, 9, 7 and 5m
Starting Price US$ 530.00 with free global delivery.
Nice drone footage of how Felix rides side-on conditions, it gives a good view of how he puts it all together. He seems to redirect the kite towards the beach after the bottom turn earlier than i do, so something to try on my next session. Good looking kite as well!
That wave riding footage was perfectly filmed IMO.
Far enough away to see the kite, rider, and wave at the same time.
But, also close enough to see the bar and how the kite reacts to input.
Nice riding as well.
The drones are really making the marketing of kites easier.
So many past kiting videos show a rider or a kite and rarely both.
And when they did show both... the helicopter was too far away to get a really good shot.
The drone footage here is really very, very good.
i am new to kiting and doing research before i buy a kite. so far from what i read some of the best all around kites free / surf are the Naish Pivot and 2015 liquid force envy so how would this kite stand up to those especially considering the price is half.

Go with the Element. You won't notice any differences yet...
hmm it seems like all the reviews ( not many out there but some ) are mostly good, i am 200 pounds with 10 / 20 mph winds and in dec i think higher (oahu) do you think th 13m will be fine for me i read that they are .5+ size so the 11 is actually 11.5 and 13 is 13.5 and so on
