I have some old Wipika 2000 FreeAirs. and on all the strut bladders the common dotted line effect is happening. The seems are pulling apart.
Will this continue until they break or open-up?
Can this be stopped?
Is this something that I can live with, and won't affect kite performance?
Any answers to these questions would be of great help, I can't afford new kites and I need these kites to last as long as possible.

I don't know if this will effect the performance of the kite, but I don't think so.
My advice is to find someone who can repeair it professionally. Wherever you come from, check your local dealer if he knows any repair shop or run your search through an internet search. maybe you can ask some guys at your local kitebeach.
