Fat, Broke Ass Friend Needs a Kite

Postby ledhead1191 » Mon Mar 04, 2013 12:49 am

My buddy in college is in desperate need of a 9 or 10 meter kite. It doesn't need to be pretty, just something with life in it. If anyone is trying to get rid of old gear please let me know. I think his budget is 200-300.

My old 2008 Rev has been sitting in my garage wanting some love. It's the first Rev, so bow hybrid something or other style aka not C-kite and is 9m. My buddy had all his gear stolen, along with the bar, so you'd need to find something that works for it there. Had some time on rocks at third but the couple rips were professionally repaired by Sonny and look great.

Message me if you're interested, or email jwest21@gmail.com.

I have something but it is a wave kite and definitely not a bow

Does he have something in particular in mind?

I have something it's Multicolored and shaped like a moon. Some say there's gold at the end some say its a myth.

How experienced is he? I have a 2008 10m Rebel and could part with one of my spare bars. I planned on keeping it for my girl to learn on, but we won't have time for that this year and I'll probably upgrade again this fall. I'd recommend the Rebel if he's a newer kiter as it has lots of depower and range, it's a very safe kite. If he's hucking big airs and looking to backloop this season he might want something with more grunt though. Sounds like you've got many offers but PM me if interested (I'll have to bring it back from Hood River in early April).
