I've been loving my new 9m and 12m elements, but have noticed something odd on the 9m Element and finally got a buddy to snap a photo. It's slightly blurry, but you can see the ripples that I'm talking about near the left wingtip- they kind of follow along the switch logo arrow.

In this photo, the bar is not depowered and is sheeted in about half way, though the ripples stay there seemingly regardless of whether I'm sheeted all the way in or not.

I looked at some of the product images for the Element 6 and found similar ripples, which makes me feel better. Has anyone else noticed these ripples on their Element6?

Haven´t noticed it, nothing to be afraid about, think about how much wind is traveling across the canopy. :)

Just to compare and come you even more down :D I used 2 seconds on google to find a picture of the 2018 rally.
