Hey, I just purchased my first Ocean Rodeo kite. I got a second hand one since I’m new to the sport. I’m rather accident prone, and when I was out testing it the other day the bungee cord holding the safety release in place managed to snap. Does anyone have any clever ideas on how to repair it without purchasing a new chicken loop? Adding photo to show what I mean.
Any suggestions? I can’t kite with it like this cos it keeps self-releasing.

Can you push the red quick release above the chickenloop? When you can you can easily put a small bungee in it en secure it with a small knot and cut it!
Maybe ask your local shoe maker for a bungee!
