What i want to know is it reparable [fairly straight rip] and if so anyone know of any good quick repairmen. Darwin would be easiest for me but Cairns or Townsvill would be ok as im in Gove so has to be posted anyway Had 2 repairs from Moti Levy Kite Repairs. He does quick turn around. Basicly, fill in the repair form, send it off, wait a few days and it's back.

The sail material is usually made of nylon ripstop which is a light-weight man made material with inter-woven ripstop reinforcement threads in a crosshatch pattern. The material comes in many different colors and sizes, including thickness. It is woven with coarse, strong warp and filling yarns spaced at intervals so that tears will not spread. Make sure when you are having someone launch your kite that they do NOT drag the kite when getting ready to launch.

It's easy to damage your kite. Whether you're packing, transporting or riding, the kite's ripstop fabric will be in contact with multiple surfaces and objects. It could your nails, but it can also be a rock, sand and water. If you found a very large rip on your kite more than ten centimeters , you should let a professional fix it.

Anyways would I just purchase some tear aid or ripstop? I was told to offset if i do just tape, so that there is no wearing edge. What about sewing it?
