Kite Repair

Comox Kite Repair can restore your damaged, inflatable or foil kite to its original performance, often with nearly invisible repairs.
Repairs are made with the same materials from which kites are built, and stitched with top-quality UV-resistant thread.

Full Kite Inspections Available - please see pricing below

If your kite has suffered a major accident we strongly recommend a full inspection as secondary damage could easily be overlooked.

Damage to a kite's fabric can be grouped into three types, based on the material or functional areas of the kite.

Canopy Tear Pro-Repair

We offer precision realignment of canopy tears, and application of spinnaker cloth ripstop adhesive tape on both sides. Tape color is closely matched from our supply of 16 fabric tape options. We do our best to blend in our repairs to make them as invisible as possible.

Next, 4-point zigzag stitching around all tape borders to lock-down the repair, and a final setting of tape adhesive. Occasionally, a mini panel is necessary or an entire panel.

$60 & up

Leading Edge & Strut Pro-Repair

Quality leading edge repairs require some understanding of Physics. The leading edge is a pressure vessel, length, direction of tear, features that are close by, and leading edge closure seam are all factors that need to be considered.

We align the tear, patch it and lock it down with a 4 point zig-zag stitch.

$105 & up

Structural Components

There are many structural features on kites, including bridle attachment points, mini-batten pockets, bladder installation or retention features, scuff protection pads, and more. Occasionally these features require repair or replacement. CKR uses high quality materials to restore your kite to its optimum condition.

$30 & up

Pro-repairs are guaranteed for the life of the kite, and transferable to a new owner if the kite is sold.

Kite Cleaning & Drying

Kite MUST BE free of sand & salt before sewing.
