I have a bunch of old Naish Boxers (2003), is there anywhere to recycle them, or should I just throw them out?

There was a post some time ago with a link to a website where you sent your old kites and they would sew them into a windproof jacket.

And that way we can blame you when beaches get closed!

What is the address to have your kite made into a jacket?

I remember years ago a company in Cowes, UK who made Dacron and Kevlar sails into duffel bags. Really cool!

I heard a rumor that Adventure Sports Miami is going to run a "trade in your junk" credit for new gear again. This isn't confirmed but if it happens, you can get a nice credit for your old C kites towards new kites. Stay tuned.

Throw them away. I just tossed a herd of barely used rhino 4s in the bin. New C kites are so much better than those old dogs I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy. Support progress, toss out the old and support your favorite kite company.
