Replacing valves on Naish kites

Postby paulbuck » Mon Apr 01, 2013 8:21 pm

Anyone know someone who does kite repairs and can replace a valve on my 2010 Naish Helix?

Sonny gave it a look for me and determined that there's probably something wrong with the valve connection between the leading edge and the center strut. He put some new tape on it, but the leak persists. Neither he nor I want to deal with replacing the valves.

Place tube firmly behind a mustang 5.0s tire. And proceed to do a massive burnout on it.

Then call your nearest naish dealer & order a new one :)

Possibly check with AirTime Kite? They did a warranty repair for me on a Naish kite several years ago...

If you put on Blister in the Sun in the background Octopus repairs are not as bad

I keep seeing that Blue Naish Thorn in the back ground in that video. Best board I ever had. You could build up so much power before a jump. Unfortunately I went to high on a jump and came down a bit hard and snapped it.
