Re: kingofwatersports.com review

Bought a couple of kites from them over last few years or so and their customer service is good. Everything arrived within a week or so with no issues all the way to the usa . Their prices are also very competitive especially their occasional discount sales.

Re: New f-one bar ripped apart while riding, what to expect from manufacturer?
