Re: Light wind kite

The OP does say his style to be : beginner

Or he wrote that just for fun

He joined Kiteforum in 2009

It's time for zamo27 to return to his thread and comment on the replies

Re: LE stitching stretches / is widening. Need to worry?

Re: LE stitching stretches / is widening. Need to worry?

Directly on the dacron casing
The bladder at this point is just fine
If you don't have Tear Aid type A get it from Amazon
It's not expensive to get a good amount of it
3 inches by 5 feet for about $25
Always good to have on hand for all types of repairs
Not just kiting
