Ripstop sail tape is the best way to repair cuts in the sail of your kite. This Nylon tape will provide the strength needed to repair small cuts without creating a huge mess to undo later if you decide to get the repair done professionally. Available in clear and black. The clear tape will blend into any kite color and will be almost invisible when the kite is in the air. Rolls are 2 inches wide and 25 feet long.

Also available by the foot: Ripstop Sail Tape (by the foot)

Shop Note: This is the only repair tape that should be used on the sail of a kiteboarding kite. If the sail color is black, black sail tape will match the best. Any other color will look best with clear tape. It is nearly imposible to match a color to sail tape because of the wide variety of colors and the fact that sail colors fade from sun exposure. Large cuts should always be professionally repaired, but this repair tape can save your session and is a must have item when travelling.


  1. Clean area of kite to be repaired
  2. Lay out sail area to be repaired flat on a table and remove all wrinkles
  3. Match up sail using grid in fabric
  4. Round corners of the tape
  5. Place tape over cut.  Do not pull or stretch the tape.  Tape should go beyond the cut by at least 1/2"
  6. Match another piece of tape on opposite side of sail.

I got this tape to do some small sail rip repairs and works great.. note you do want to make sure the sail is completely dry and on a sail cut you want to double it up with one on the top and one on the bottom to match. Still holding after a month of kiting.. Always take some with me on all trips.. The white is more like clear almost..

I tore my 11-meter kite from leading edge to all the way to the tail. Taped it on both sides, and it flew great yesterday! Holds well in cold weather for snowkiting. I was afraid the kite was useless before the repair. No worries now!

keep flying

This product is the best thing I have ever purchased. I ordered some just to have on hand. Sure enough a small tear appreared in my canopy I was able to apply the tape, fix the tear, and Im still using the kite without having a professional repair done.
