Burst my 4m Ozone wasp this arvo. Changing front handle position while lit going upward and wing got ripped out of my fingers in gust. Who fixes small rip in front tube and small rip bladder in Perth? Wasn't all bad, got my gybes both sides down and luckily easy 200m down wind glide back to Pelican point beach with water soaked wing. Shame both tubes are connected on wasp. Front tube ripped so both deflated almost instantly. Would have been easy as to sail back to shore if middle tube was still inflated.

cheers

Give Ryan a call, he's helped me out a couple of times now and does a great job.

Cheers guys - getting heaps of wing repairs through at the mo. Mainly from contact with foil.
I can normally get exact or close to on colours and bladders, canopies and leading edges are all repairable.

Johno - your wing will be ready tomorrow.

Won't help you... but Kiteworks in Auckland is great and fast. Have used them a few times already as I learn this new sport, lol.

Funny that Ryan is the Sail Doctor. My 2 year old calls the Kiteworks guy the "Kite Wing Doctor" :)
