Must Have Travel Items
These are a few of the items that we always take with us when traveling no matter what.  All have been tried and tested by the team. ER Patch Kit again brings you the latest and great kit to keep you kiting longer.  This Tear Aid patch kit includes 3 different sizes of pre cut and rounded Tear Aid patches that cover a multitude of repairs.  Use it to repair your Leading Edge or Strut bladder.  Use it to repair a slice or tear on your sail.

  PKS Kook Proof Pigtails
Pigtails are one of the most common wear points on your kite and nothing is worse than knowing you are swimming in (or missing out on riding time) because of a simple cheap part. We recommend replacing these once a year or at the first sign of wear.  A great item to have on hand just in case, especially if going on vacation.

  Crazyfly Golf Bag

The Crazyfly Golf Bags are designed to be as light as possible but still have padding everywhere you need it.  This saves weight and helps you stay under the magic 50 lb. weight limit to avoid crazy fees. 

Available in:
Ultra-lightweight version with backpack straps (No Wheels)
With Wheels (No backpack straps)

 $164.95 or $169.95 with wheels
  PKS Compression Bag

These bags are an absolute must if you travel.  They save tons of space and weight and are just much easier to carry around with you.  Designed by Jeff Howard, these bags will not tear when tightened way down because the compression strap goes all the way around.

"I can't imagine travelling without them.  These take up so much less space. I even use them as an everyday bag for my kites and they work great. " - Patrick
