To all Gaastra Kiteboarding Department 2009 kites users, effective immediately:
It has come to our attentions that a small group of Gaastra 2009 kites are experiencing problems with the 2009 Quick Release system QR.
Gaastra is therefore replacing ALL 2009 QR’s with new 2010 QR’s, free of charge.
Go to your local dealer(with your receipt!), and order a 2010 QR, you need to return the 2009 QR when pick up the 2010 QR.
The 2010 QR’s are currently being produced, they are expected to arrive in the beginning of August.
In the mean time we ask you to do the following:
- Check if your 2009 QR is working properly
- If so: Make sure you check it before every session
- If not, open the QR and clean it if necessary, upon closing, make sure you do now screw the middle screw too tightly - If it still doesn’t work. Do not use your 2009 QR, wait for it to be replaced!
We are sorry for any inconvenience,
Gaastra Kiteboarding Departement
