Re: Waterproof your kite?

Okay, the issue I have is crashing my kite on the water then returning to the beach shortly thereafter. After landing the kite on the beach the LE is covered with sand 'cause it's wet.

I have had two kites that I have left in the wind too long as I relaxed between sessions. And, over time, the trailing edge began to...
