Wing Repair

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

Full Wing Inspections Available - please see pricing below

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

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

Canopy Tear Pro-Repair

We offer precision realignment of canopy tears and apply spinnaker cloth ripstop adhesive tape on both sides. We use our supply of 16 fabric tape options to closely match colours. We do our best to blend in our repairs to make them as invisible as possible.

Next, we use 4-point zig zag 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 Pockets Pro-Repair

Around the tear, the closing seam is opened to allow access to the damaged area. The tear is aligned and patched with similar weight Dacron tape both inside and out. The patch is locked down with 4-point zig-zag stitching, and the leading edge seam is closed. For damage beyond patching, complete panels are replaced with new fabric. Pro-repairs are guaranteed for the life of the wing, transferable to a new owner if the wing is sold.

$105 & up

Structural Components Pro-Repair

There are many features on wings, including windows, 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 wing 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.

Wing Cleaning & Drying

Wing MUST BE free of sand & salt before sewing.
