Hi,

It’s too bad but I ripped my new Razor kite when I was snowkiting :(

My intention is to repair it only by using repair tape and glue. Do you think this big area can be repaired without stitching?

Check my picture

Thanks!

My advice is get it done properly especially as it is a new kite ( Always the way)
A good repairer will match the material and it will be all but invisible and as good as new.

Thanks for your reply! I’ll check if I have that possibility nearby.

Definitely get that fixed professionally.  If you can’t find someone who specifically repairs kites, try looking for sail makers/sail repairs in any coast town.

if you dont have a repair shop nearby and its just the canopy….use drywall tape and this http://www.eclecticproducts.com/sport_outdoor.htm
its a cheaper kitefix product.
i have done many repairs this way and have yet to have it fail. clean the canopy with rubbing alcohol first. warm the goop in hot water for 10 minutes and scrape on with old credit card.
pm me if you need more instruction
