When buying used kiteboarding gear, it is very important to check the gear thoroughly. Checking for things like pinholes in your kite (this could become an entire canopy rip if it is crashed hard on the water), any previous repairs, pumping the kite to make sure there are no bladder leaks. Also checking the general condition of the canopy (new kites with be crispy and have a sharp colour, older kites will be dulling in colour and have more a paper like feel).
Check bars for colour in the lines (the colour fades with age). Always check for knots as these decrease the line strength by 80% can could easily cause a snapped line while flying. Make sure your safety system is up to date and working properly and that no line are fraying.
Boards last along time and can still be used even if they are not in perfect condition. Look at the footstraps to make sure they are not falling apart, check the board for any cracks or dents, make sure the size is suitable for your height and weight. Your fins should not be cracked or chipped.
Your harness is arguably the most important part of your kiteboarding gear. We recommend buying a harness new as each person is a different size and shape and the harness will mold to your body. Buying a used harness could be very uncomfortable as it has moulded to someone elses body shape, this can ruin your entire experience.
