I just took out my new 6m Element 6 and I absolutely love it.
I went out in the the surf with winds around 30+ knots and man it was fun! the kite is super friendly, drifts very well and has a lot of power for the size.
I jumped 12m (recoded by Woo) and the landings were very smooth and with a lot of hang time (almost like the nitro) so you can relax and control the landings nicely after a big jump without plummeting down.
I think the switch team nailed it with this kite!
