I have to add my recommendation to consider www.kiteworld.com. I am sure they would be able to ship as quickly and competitively as cometalia.

The people who run the shop are real kiters and know what they are talking about. They invariably ship same day. Their prices are competitive. Their customer service is just right. And they sponsor a number of Revolution events, which makes them thoroughly good eggs. Apart from that, there is not much good one can say about them ;) (apart from they stand their turn when it is time to buy the beer!)

thanks for the link...


The only problem I see is taht us people in Europe have to pay extra Tax (at least in Portugal we do) therefore we need to get shops based in Europe... (but I will have a look in this one for some items I can't get here...;))


Just for the Record Cometalia is also runed by Kiteres... and they also know what they are talking about ;)

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! :(
I should re-write my message adding: Subject to Availability.

All this chat of B-series and Kiteworld, they have sold out of the one I need *sigh*

The folk from Kiteworld.co.uk go just that bit further to make sure you don't lose flying time if they can....
Here delivering kite and parts etc directly to the beach, Rob did lose a little fly time being as Mike took his Rev 1 over for a little practice. :D

I can't believe the supplier you picked, and I recommended, has let you down. They should have s good reason. Have rev us sent them new stock? A few experiences make me think we in the UK get a lower level of priority.

I wouldn't mind so much but I can't fly anything else.
