I expect my kites to last 1 year high use. 2 years medium use. 3 years light use. Anything more than that is a bonus.

So do you scrap them after that since they are worn out?

I flick mine on at 75% wear. That way I get some residual value. Plus I'm not riding kites that can potentially fail at the wrong time.

hey, it was a good day, since you didn't get hurt.
That is bad luck, the rest just stuff that happens.
Don't worry, you gonna have fantastic days ahead of you! :thumb:
