Price based on hourly labour
All repairs are done at the kite repair centre and school in Langebaan. To ensure a fast repairing process we would like to stress again that, for your kite to be properly repaired, your kite needs to be CLEAN, rinsed with FRESH water. Sand, salt and oil create a grinding paste that destroys our sewing and sealing machines. If you don't have time to clean it, your kite repair will be delayed depending on how busy we are.
We request the following:
* A clean kite
* Patience (depending on our work-load, we aim for your kite to be ready within the same day)
* We message you when your baby is ready to go out on the water
That way we can ensure your kite is finished as quick as possible.
