used kite

Postby Guest » Sun May 25, 2003 7:39 am

Howdie,
I am a beginner and can buy at a local shop a used kite (wipika 12, Hydro, aspect ratio 3,8 (don't know the exact measurers). But what do you recommend? Never buy a used kite or give special attention to certain things etc.etc. The price is Euro 595,00.

thx in advance for you reply,
Tom

you should pay attention to the flat size.
12 can be projected or flat area, this means if projected it is 16 sqm flat.

Pump up all tubes before you buy and see if the tubes loose air.
Check if any scratches , cuts, repaired areas.
Check the seams if ok.

Good luck
