It has been unwrapped and all the valves have been reglued and REPLACED with new valves Mar 2023. The original bladders in the leading edge and struts are solid and hold air for days. It is not a kite for learning or beginners. Any modern SLE kite after 2008 would be better, cheaper and safer than this kite for learning. This is a rare kite looking for an owner.
It would be ideal for a heavier experienced rider, a light wind location retro session, a reliable backup kite or to pull a boat. It comes with the original bag that expands to fit the kite with struts inflated. Minor wear on the bag and very little color bleed8ng on the canopy. I will add pics as I take them. This is a rare NEW vintage kite.
