I have not heard of charlie but i can recommend a guy named Helmet. I think that is how it's spelled. He does all the repairs on KHks school and demo kites. Khk instructors usually refer customers to him he has a good turn around time. Hes about 60-70 years old has a nordica accent and is fun to kite with.

Charlie does very good work. Helmut (it's German) also does good work, but works in the Tri-Villages area during the primary season and not during the colder months. You'll usually find Helmut in Texas (Corpus area) during the winter.
