Superfast turn

The new WS has boundless possibilities with its superfast turns and ease of handling. Nimble yet stable, it achieves outstanding performance across disciplines, much loved for its carefree riding.

Amazing drift capabilities

Catch waves with ease, enjoy a chilled session, or even foil, the WS automatically switches to auto-pilot with light initiation. Watch it naturally drift, absorb gusts, and turn on a dime without the need for force.

New for V7

The Open-C hybrid three-strut design provides power right when you need it, and the canopy has been optimised to distribute force more efficiently to ensure stability. New for Version 7 is a further reduction in weight through the use of our specialised XT light fabric in the inflatable structures which adds to the drift capabilities. The WS is stall-free and stays forgiving which makes it easy to fly, even in the low end.


With exceptionally swift pivotal characteristics, your turns are fast and precise for smooth-flowing carves. Riders love the light, yet direct bar pressure and the new sizes and huge wind range add to its accessibility.

The WS is an agile favourite for freeriders and wave addicts alike.

Technical Specifications

  • Extreme fast turn
  • Pivot turner
  • Direct drift turn

The WS adjusts to your surfing style. It turns rapidly on the spot generating a perfectly balanced amount of power, supporting you to throw massive spray without ever ripping you off your board.

  • Medium AR
  • Stable downwind drift
  • Gust absorber

The WS provides an excellent downwind drift thanks to the medium aspect ratio. It absorbs gusts and travels upwind with ease. As soon as you catch a wave, the kite switches to autopilot.

  • Medium to low sweep
  • Good power control
  • Direct handling

The outstanding bar feedback, light bar pressure, and responsiveness of the WS are due to the kite’s advanced wingtip sweep. You can fly complex manoeuvres without ever looking up.
