Re: washing the kite after use make the difference?

Way more important to not have it sit in the beach for too long. That will damage the Kite for sure.

Good point, wind chaser. I am guilty of not inspecting my kites enough. I do inspect my bars and lines fairly frequently, but if I find a problem with my kite, it's usually before, during or after a session, and not during a dedicated inspection. Guilty as charged.wind chaser wrote: ↑Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:20 pmI remember seeing this article on The Kiteboarder a while back - https://www.thekiteboarder.com/2011/08/ ... st-longer/
I don't think it hurts to rinse a kite with fresh water occasionally. For those who don't rinse the kite, how often do you pump up and thoroughly inspect the kite? I know when its windy I'm in a rush (like all the riders i see at the spot) to pump up the kite and get out on the water. I find that I am more thorough and notice wear when I pump up the kite (in a grassy spot) on a non-windy day and rinse.
You probably ride occasionally
