Are the days of 1/2 price controller dead?

I always appreciated that Switch offered a bar for 1/2 price with the order of a new kite, and I've taken them up on it every single time I've ordered one. The $50 off the CX4 is underwhelming in comparison. Do you think this deal is gone for good, or will it return once the CX4 isn't so new?

Re: Switch Element V6

I will say that this is the kite I was waiting for- a little less surf and a little more jump for my home (lake champlain, vt) spot. I finally picked up a nitro 6 in the 12m at the beginning of the summer but if this had been out, it would have been a no brainer. Time to replace my v3 9m element wit...

12m Nitro 6 Inverting Frequently - Tips/Feedback Needed

I picked up a 12m Nitro 6 part way through the summer as my "light wind" kite. I weigh 130lbs and ride in Lake Champlain most of the time. I haven't had many sessions on the kite, but had it out for most of the day on Monday in steady 14-18mph winds. Power wise, the kite was great for me. However, e...

Re: Is controller 4 in development?

For those of you who don't follow @switchkites on Instagram, I found this in their story this morning: https://vimeo.com/233314649/310900ea2c (sorry for the audio sync issue, when I hooked my iPhone into the screen recorder, Instagram somehow blocked the audio from going through, so I had to record ...

Really disapointed V3 is out of stock. I would like to get it half price with a kite... too late
If you contact support before you order they will usually make a note and set it up so that you can get the 1/2 price V3 bar when it comes back in stock.

Re: Kite Confusion: 13m Element vs 12m Nitro vs. 15.5m Heliu

I want to thank everyone who helped me decide!

I ordered the blue and green Nitro6 in a 12m on June 13th and picked it up from the post office on the 21st! Definitely the fastest I've ever received a package from Switch ;)

Now for some wind...

Icedub, Looking at that wind graph, you could have rode the 10 Nitro and had a blast except the lull before 4:00, I would have been on the 12M Lets ride when your here in July, who are your friends? MAC I sent you a DM, but I'm not sure if that actually works in this forum. Do you know Rob Menet or...

Re: Kite Confusion: 13m Element vs 12m Nitro vs. 15.5m Heliu

The Nitro 12M would be a fun kite for lighter winds, but not the ultimate light wind kite. Okay, this did it for me! Nitro 12m it is. If I lived on the coast where the wind was super stable 10mph, I'd go Helium, but this lake (champlain) does not have steady wind very often. Maybe I'll expand to a ...
