PROTECT YOUR KITE FROM THE SUN, THE WIND, AND THE BEACH

Our kites cost us thousands of dollars. Doesn't it make sense protect them and prolong their lives? Think about what we typically do at the end of a session. We land the kite on the beach, put some sand on the canopy to hold it down and then leave it sitting in the wind and sun.

Our kites cost us thousands of dollars. Doesn't it make sense protect them and prolong their lives? Think about what we typically do at the end of a session. We land the kite on the beach, put some sand on the canopy to hold it down and then leave it sitting in the wind and sun.

 

THERE ARE THREE THINGS THAT REALLY DAMAGE YOUR KITE


The SUN. The U.V. (ultra violet light) breaks down the fabric making it soft and weak.

The WIND. When riding, the trailing edge stays nice and taut but on the beach it flaps constantly in the wind. This "flagging" breaks down the fibers causing lost strength and shape.

The BEACH. On the beach the leading edge constantly rubs on the sand and rocks causing abrasions and tears. And putting sand on the canopy to hold the kite down worsens the damage.

 


 

WE BELIEVE AN HOUR ON THE BEACH CAUSES MORE DAMAGE THAN AN HOUR ON THE WATER.

 

SO WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
Protect your kite with our kite covers. Our kite cover is made from U.V. resistant ripstop nylon to block the U.V. It slips under the leading edge to protect it from abrasion, and over the trailing edge to stop flagging and has  two built in bags for filling with sand to hold the kite down.

No U.V., no flagging, no abrasion! And it's quick and easy to use.

 

 HOW OUR COVERS WORK

 

 FITS ALL SIZE KITES

The cover comes with center panels that you can add to fit all kites from 6m to 18m. The panels attach with a velcro strip making it simple to make the cover larger or smaller. They are easy to change when you switch kite sizes.
If you are changing kites during the day you can nest your kites behind one cover.   Protect multiple kites with one cover.
