A story of a misrepresented ebay kite — damaged and repaired

Chicks dig scars, even when they are on a kite.

Shown here is a Cabrinha Switchblade that we repaired for Scott Churilla. He purchased the kite on ebay and it was far more damaged than we thought from the pictures. He sent us a shot that the seller on ebay took that made it look a lot better than it actually was. This shot here, showing the damage, was taken by me for an email telling Scott that we'd sorta been had by the seller.

We were able to put the kite back together perfectly as seen in the shot above and below.

This is an email we got from Scott after the repair:
