2nd hand sites?

Postby Peter_Frank » Thu Jun 13, 2019 2:34 pm

Would be happy if some could post the international sites used for selling kitefoil gear.
Or general kitesurf gear, if no specific kitefoil sites.
Or general "stuff" if no specific kitesurf/surf sites.

We got some national groups here, only for kitesurf sales, but as we are a small country it does not reach far.


Kiteforum got its own 2nd hand now, since january: viewforum.php?f=4
In Denmark we got a facebook group in Danish for kitesurf gear: https://www.facebook.com/groups/265354900259307/
In France this one Leboncoin is quite big I heard: https://www.leboncoin.fr/recherche/

EBay is not used much, or is it, I dont know?

Other 2nd hand sites?
I have never really used (m)any, so dont know these sites yet :roll:

PS: Got too many wings now, 7 different ones, so selling some for very little...
But also interested in buying sometimes, kites in particular.

Ebay has made some policy changes making it very difficult for small sellers. For example on ebay it is easy for a buyer to buy a kite, keep it in their hot car a month, delaminate all valves, claim defective and force a return. Seller pays shipping and transaction fees both ways for the pleasure of having their gear damaged.

Yes, Very true. Wife used to sell antique dishware over eBay. She would ship it in 3 deep layers of bubble wrap and styrofoam impossible to break. People would simply order from her when they already had broken stuff for a free replacement..... claiming her's was broken. Too bad.
For second-hand sales in The Gorge, Oregon, Washington, USA take a look at NWKite classifieds:

Hmmm, havent put them "on" yet, and this is not the proper site to sell things on...
They are all Ketos wings.

It is my "Easy" wing 805 cm2, AR 5.2 so I have used it in marginal winds 6 knots, as the relatively high AR gives so much lift and low drag.

Then I got a "Race" wing 523 cm2 AR 5.2 which is fast, but still really easy turning, use it for jumping now and then.

And the "Wave" wing 570 cm2 AR 4.4, the most lively wing of them all - not 100% sure I want to sell...

Last, the original Takoon/Ketos wing "Free", 595 cm2 AR 6.5 which goes incredibly upwind, so many racers are envious ha haa.

Have no idea of the prices yet, but my main goal is that they will be used more than I do, even if for a low price.

In USA (and elsewhere, I think), there are a lot of regional Facebook groups. I've also had reasonably good experiences with

http://c.ikitesurf.com/classifieds

but, with all long-distance transactions, you need to be cautious.
