This kite was used for demos and some lessons. We are retiring this kite because we are receiving newer gear.
The kite is solid and holds air.
No rips in the canopy.
It doesn't have a pump leash connection point. That part came undone. It doesn't affect the kite's performance. (We advise you to connect your kiteboarding leash to the kite's main bridle line to pump up your kite.)
