Sales and Trade Item
(And in some cases, free to good homes):
After 38 years in the kite business there is a mountain of stuff (kite and kite related) that sort of accumulated. Elwyn and I have donated most of this to the ASEAN kite council to support local (ASEAN) kite makers, but there are some things that aren't really suitable for ASEAN, mostly prototypes, demonstrators, superseded products and left over materials except for fabric and tubing up to 12mm or so. I expect some kite fliers will be interested. Things that have value (but sometimes not much) include; new wetsuits (mostly small sizes), larger carbon and fibreglass tubing, 900 or so back packs (over-ordered), new and used kites of many (outdated) styles, superseded T shirts, and about 1000 rolls of double sided tape. Things that don't have value include various prototype kite sailing boats (many!).
I'll list everything as I get time to do inventory and descriptions, but if there's anything you think I might have that you could be keen on, please send me an email [click here].
What about a 13m x 9m Edo? Carrying the Exel logo (carbon tube makers) and built for the 1998 Scheveningen kite festival, it was never flown until Nelson (NZ) January 2009. Weight is about 120kgms, 40kgms or more of which is bridling! The structure is 88/2.5m long 22mm OD fiberglass tubing.
You can click the image to enlarge and have a wee look at the You Tube movie of it flying at Nelson 2009
Anyone interested in it? [let me know]
