Best/Cheapest Bargain Kitesurf Websites

Postby Ecoastprock » Wed Jan 16, 2013 10:34 pm

Just wondering what sites yall use for shopping online? I have found that

http://www.Mackiteboarding.com

http://www.Kitepaddlesurf.com

usually have some awesome deals. Real Watersports website is decent but still a little pricey for me.

I generally use companies located in the US to avoid international shipping charges.

What sites do you use???

Switchkites.com are very well priced for a low budget - build quality and performance as good as any overpriced brand...

Im not really concerned with a specific brand's website. Just the cheapest place to buy kites in general. For instance on kitepaddlesurf.com i got my 15m LF Envy with a bar and lines for 499!

Are there any other websites that sell really cheap kite gear??

nobody wants to admit they sell "CHEAP" gear.

The word affordable might get you more attention. Or maybe "Value"

Cheap is like saying its crap when you say it to the person selling it.


Forums are where I always find the best deals anyway. that and ebay.

nwkite.com classifieds is probably the best. ikitesurf also sometimes has some good finds on it, even though their search filters suck balls.

Urbansurf.com was blowing out 2011/2012 North Naish and Cabrinha gear. I dunno if they have much left but there was a lot in the 25% range.

Kitepaddlesurf.com is good for liquid force or blade gear.

Both Urbansurf and Kitepaddlesurf are local shops here. I know for a fact that what they have on the web doesn't always reflect the instore clearance sales, so its good to call to see what inventory they have.

been using Real a bit. They have some good sales too. Otherwise, if you find a product, just contact the shop directly.

There has been quite a few through the years :-) Most shops have been a pleasure to work with.
Last surfboard I got online was via Real, and they went above and beyond. Good stuff.

Kiteline is a good site. Super fast shipping and I got a great deal on a 2012 12m Rebel this fall.

Sorry, but 25% discount doesn't cut it - I consider that the "normal" price. I've been offered 15-20% off during peak season. I'd consider a true "blow-out" deal to be 30-40% discount. And I'm talking new gear here - but possibly last year's model.

Real is always willing to make a deal with me on used stuff. New stuff too, but the used / demo stuff can be under half price of new for 1 year old model

This is exactly how i feel. Any kite over 1000 is a rip off. Thanks for all the sites, ill have to check them out.
