The repairs on my Soul 12m were completed about 2 weeks ago by Windfire Designs, but with the Corona virus beach closures and other issues, I have not had time to fly the kite. Windfire Designs did a great job and I could hardly tell where the tear was :D . There was a small patch near the stiffener where the fabric was torn that you can see if you look close up. I have attached pictures of before and after.

Interesting that looks like it was mostly just the stitching coming undone.
