Decent US online kite shop?

Postby Kamikuza » Thu Sep 10, 2009 2:29 am

That ships overseas, takes overseas issued credit cards and doesn't charge the earth for shipping?

I want to buy an Ocean Rodeo Session 2 ...

I'm NOT using Realkitesurfing cos they're assholes - I got my Dakine Fusion off them; they tried to charge me $170 for shipping so I got it sent to a US buddy ($10) and he sent it to me for $40 USPS then when it arrived, the stitching on the leg straps was totally coming undone - all 4 seams. Not something you'd miss when you're putting it in a box :(

I'd prefer to put some money in the pockets of members or a good, reliable mom&pop store ...

Try Kittyhawk Kites at kittyhawk.com. They stock the Session 2 and ship worldwide.

These guys are a full service Ocean Rodeo dealer, if the harness is not shown on the web site
(they don't update it that often) just give them a call on skype and they can set you up.

Good Luck!

kiteboarding.com in corpus christi is also great to deal with. I'm pretty sure they carry Ocean Rodeo but I could be wrong.
