ALL my used Ozone kites , came with the desired color of adhesive backed patch
material ; so perhaps ask an Ozone dealer maybe ?
OR
Something from here might work :

If the bad-spot is more than an inch long , i suggest that you hand stitch
the edges to keep them from lifting ; also clean with denatured alcohol
before applying. If your Really careful then you don't even need to remove
the bladder , just push it away to the side prior to the sewing job or place
something stiff between the bladder and the repair spot then remove it
when finished.

Get some kitefix. Most shops carry it or you can order it at http://www.xlkiteboarding.com/proddetai ... x-Reipstop I know it says for sail but works on leading edge for small nicks and scuffs. For full blown tears best to have the patches sewn.
