Kite repair in Greater Victoria

Post by Rookie »

Any tips on finding kite repair services in Victoria area? I've seen CKR site but that's a long drive.
I need main bladder and strut valves replaced on two older but good condition Best Nemeis kites.
Thanks
Mike

Tofino Bus Co have decided to close the Courtenay bus station, so sending kites on the bus up-island is no longer viable ( have to be at the bus stop in Courtenay to meet the bus to ask the driver to unload your package, or not ).

For about the same cost as a trip on the bus, provided you have a pick-up address, FAS couriers will accept the kite in its kitebag an get it up to us in Comox over-night.

Mailing kites or drysuits up with Canada Post as a parcel is the most economical, especially if you pack it tightly in a box that just fits.
