To estimate the cost for a typical repair, click on this link for our repair cost guidelines.
To confirm your estimate, send us an e-mail describing what you need fixed. If you can, take some digital pictures of the damage and attach the pictures to the e-mail. Include information about the kite, such as manufacturer, model, year, general condition of the kite ( new / slightly used / well used ), your future plans for the kite ( keep forever / sell at the end of the season ), and your priorities for the repair ( economy / near invisible repair / fast turnaround ). We use this information to provide recommendations of the most appropriate repair method, or options for you to decide.
We will reply within 24 hours with a ballpark estimate and turnaround time. If the damage is obvious in the pictures, the repair cost will be within the ballpark estimate. If the damage isn’t clear, we may respond with a wide spread in the estimate, or a request for more pictures. Once we inspect the kite, lines, or bar, we will provide you with a firm repair cost for your approval before starting the repair work.

If you are happy with our quote, rinse off any salt or sand, let it dry completely, and pack it up and send it to us. Please contact us with any tracking information for your inbound shipment. When we receive your kite or bar and have inspected the damage, we’ll contact you with the firm quote and completion date.
When the work is done, we will invoice you, and ship back upon receipt of payment. We accept PayPal, Interac e-mail transfers, or credit cards through PayPal.

If sending a bladder alone, protect it in a sturdy cardboard box with padding around the bladder, as an envelope will not provide enough protection.
Kites can be shipped kite-only in a box by Canada Post parcel service, or by Greyhound bus, a good mix of price and delivery speed. Kites sent by bus can be packed in just the kite-bag, provided you will accept a little bus depot dirt or scuffs on the kite bag. Secure the zips with twist-ties or zap-straps, and use Courtenay BC bus station as the destination. We will pick it up from there. Greyhound will want the CKR phone number as well as the address, both are listed above.
If you prefer to ship via courier, let us know and we’ll provide our courier shipping address, as most will not deliver to a post office box.
