xelerator surf/ kiteboards SA still existing?

Postby naishdude » Thu Feb 20, 2014 10:38 am

Hi,

Trying to find the xelerator kiteboard website...but cannot find it anymore?
Are they out of buissnes? Any distributors in Europe?
I am interested in a lightwind directional kiteboard ( fish or free race/fun )
Not interested in Nugget or airush sector ( have sector 60)
Thx
Dude :cool2:

About a year ago I asked one of the local shops that used to stock xelerator where their xelerator stock is and they told me the xelerator closed down. Guess they could not compete with the cheap chinese mass produced boards.

Yes Xcellerator closed doors about 1.5 years ago.
Can recommend Cape Dr for quality custom boards - they have been producing boards in Cape Town for about 15 years and have a strong reputation for quality products and great service.
Check them at www.capedr.co.za

Both thanks for the reaction...unfortunatly me living in Europe it is not so obvious to buy unknown boards so far away...without the possibility to feel touch or even see them...if you know what l mean...not to mention imports/ delivery..

Thanks anyway , pity they could not survive!

Well then now you got the best excuse to come to Cape Town during your winter for a kitesurfing vacation - perhaps even catch the Red Bull King of The Air next year :thumb: :thumb:
