Spring Winds are HERE!!!!
It has been blowing just about everyday in Corpus Christi, and it seems like our seasonal 15-25mph winds will continue to blow well into next week.   For anyone tired of the cold up North, take a quick trip down to Corpus and get in on the fun.  Right now a nice rashguard or springsuit is all that is needed and the wind has been working like clockwork.  With several riding spots within a 15 to 30 minute drive from the airport, this is the perfect place to score a quick weekend trip. For a cheap and easy trip, it is pretty hard to beat coming down to Portland (where Wildcat Kiteboarding Park is located) and Corpus Christi TX.  Feel free to hit us up for advice on where to stay and when to come.

 PKS Universal Pigtails 
Just want to replace your pigtails?  PKS is the only brand we have found that makes high quality replacement pigtails without spending a fortune.  These pigtails are made from the same exact material that all of the manufacturers use so why spend so much when you could buy them for a reasonable price????  It is always a good idea to have a set of four of these on hand just incase one starts to wear or breaks.

Ronstan Orbit Block Kite Pulley
We have seen several cases of broken pulleys wearing down and breaking bridle lines.   Not only can this create a annoying swim in but can also be dangerous as many kites will spiral out of control after a bridle line breaks. The new Ronstan Orbit Block Kite Pulley is way stronger with a 1200 lb rating and if there is a break a custom made kite specific loop will let you maintain control of the kite!!!

Only $12.00
 
 PKS Pulley Savers (includes 4)
Pulley Savers are designed to be a very simple way to back-up your bridle system and keep your wing shape from being compromised should a pulley break in flight.  The pulley saver simply attaches around the pulley and bridle line to keep them attached in the event the pulley breaks during flight.

 Replacement Bridle Line
Replacement Dyneema Kite Bridle line works for any standard bridle setup.  Rated for use as a kite bridle.

This bridle line is for use with Inflatable water kites, or Snow / Land Foils.  Order with a loop on one end, both , or no loops.  One great idea is to order a couple of bridles with loops on one end so you can simply cut the bridle down to the length you need and make a knotted loop.  These are great to have on hand just incase one breaks.

Only $2.50 per foot

 Ripstop Kite Sail Tape
Repair small cuts in your sail fast and easy.  Even the smallest of cuts can rip open when the sail is loaded while hitting the water or just from the forces of riding.  This is the main cause of just about every major sail blow out we have seen.  You can even see exactly where the small rip was before the blowout (large rip going from top to bottom of kite sail) occured.  This can be easily prevented by placing a piece  of sail tape on both sides of a cut.  No sewing necessary, simply make sure it is clean and dry and stick it on.  The BIG advantage of this tape over other tapes and repair products is you can take it off if the cut or tear needs to be professionally sewn.  Non-Permanent

Ripstop Sail Tape
Only $0.65 a foot or $15.00 a roll

 
 
 Dacron Kite Repair Tap
Dacron Tape should be used to repair all cuts in the leading edge and stuts of a inflatable kite.  The dacron 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. The BIG advantage of this tape over other tapes and repair products is you can take it off if the cut or tear needs to be professionally sewn.  Non-Permanent
