I have owned a whole quiver of Wainman 2.0 kites and I think my elements are far superior in all aspects. I have been kiting for 18 years and think that any version of Switch kites goes upwind way better than most other brands I have demoed. Just my 2 cents...

Yeah I'm turning 40 this year and its starting to really suck crashing. I have only a 12m Legacy v1 and all nitro 6's 12m 9m and 7m I just got. Normally I would say the legacys have more float and hangtime but that seemed to change for me with the v6's. I would say they are very similar now. I would...
I really hope the new jumping performance of the nitro 6 is competitive with the ozone edge. I'm so sick of my buddies jumping higher than me on the woo challenges. I hope it gets released soon this week, my finger is on the mouse ready to by.

I rode mine Sat winds were between 20 to 35mph, I'm 190# and on A MJcomp2 140. I will say I do love the kite its awesome and has all the things I love about the Nitro. So...
I don't even know where to begin. I will apologize in advance for the expletives I'm using for my enthusiasm of how much I love this kite. This kite is F'ing amazing. I creamed my drysuit so hard riding this thing today I sprained my asshole. Its so damn good for unhooking even in really strong wind...
