anyone in the bay area who does kite repairs w/ LE bladders?

Postby consumer » Fri Apr 15, 2005 11:04 pm

So ive been trying for the life of me to get the leading edge bladder back into my 9.0m but i cant do it right, i always seem to end up with wayyy too much slack on either end,and i know the bladder isnt seated properly either. I'm really really bad at this, does anyone know a professional in the area who specializes in repairing kites?

-thanks

Sonnys web page (fastest version)

http://www.kite3rd.com/

If you like it cheap, take a long ride to Joe @

http://www.davenportsurfsail.com/html/sail_repair.html

Best and nicest service. Definitely the nicest shop here around ... (a very personal opinion)


I have no address from Willy but just ask in the shop in Alameda

thanks for all the help, i have to wait for my new bladder to come in since the old one looks unrepairable, but i will probably need some assistance, will look to the advice above. I've met you before Sonny and youre awesome =D>
