Try this guy - Jonnie Eisler

His website indicates he can fix bad bladder blow-outs, although I have no other information or feedback on his bladder repair work.

Thank you Greg,

funnily enough, my mate at my local beach recommended him as well….having now looked at his website, it looks as though it may well be repairable grin  hopefully it can be fixed confused

that said though, I don’t seem to be able to find any spares for that kite anywhere - I was looking for the 4-line bridle at one point - any idea where I can get one of them? or strut bladders etc.?

With good welding techniques, any bladder blow-out can be fixed.

As for spare bladders for your kite, John Z or Ned at OR CustomerService will likely confirm my guess that most of the older kite bladders that they were holding have been sold to a US kite bladder repair specialist - Jim Haddox at BladderMan  .  He will probably have spares for your kite.

I’m with Greg - if you can repair it, do it! Otherwise, let us know and we can order you in a bladder… will take a little while to have one made for you though!

Thanks guys,

I’ve sent it off so fingers crossed! Spoke to jonnie and he said if on the seam then repairs can be difficult, but was about a cm off so hopefully! John, what about the 4line bridle? Not the biggest fan of 5 lines?

Very pleased btw to hear s&m manager not pushing me into buying new!! wink makes a change!!

How different is the kite on 4 lines? I imagine relaunch is a bit harder?
