Anyone know a good kite repairer in the Bay area?

Postby g4ce » Fri Jan 05, 2007 5:46 pm

Does anyone know of a good kite repair person around here? Preferably in SF?

My kite got munched yesterday at Stinson :shock: .. there were a handful of us out there, pretty fun, decent swell, a little punchy, powered on a 9.. incredible really!

Except for a little kite drop on the inside.. all is well except that one of the struts tore off the canopy..

Thanks

Sounds like a bargain, I got a quote from Sonny for $140 for a straight 3' tear in the LE of my kite, decided it wasn't worth it.

Sonny is fantastic! The turn around time and quality of his repairs are amazing, and I found his prices to be very fair. He's a stand up guy and you can certainly trust him.

Feel free to PM me if you would like to discuss.

Free pick up & delivery

Hey, Just to let everybody know, I started a FREE pick up and delivery for kites to be repaired by Bruce in Rio Vista. I can pick up your kite in Alameda and have it back to you ASAP. Just put your name, cell number, and an exact description of what you want repaired on a luggage tag on your kite bag. Then call me @ 925-457-3237. There is nothing he cant fix! Don't worry I wont lose your kite or anything. I just work near Alameda and live near Rio Vista and it may save ya a trip. Kev....
