Let’s Get You Geared Up for Kiteboarding!
Once you’ve become a confident, independent kiter, it’s time to buy some equipment. Navigating the choices can be confusing and stressful, but our friendly and knowledgeable LEK team is here to make things easier for you.
First Decision: New vs. Used
Consider these factors:
1. Your kite experience – as a beginner you may choose used, knowing you’ll be harder on the kite in the beginning (crashing it more often) and you’ll be perfecting your kite skills and refining your tastes as you improve your riding level.
2. Your budget – used will save you money in the initial investment, however, you may spend more later to upgrade your kite.
3. Which piece of gear it is – some gear might be worth buying new, like the most comfortable harness you can find.
Buy Used Gear from LEK – In Cabarete or At Home
At our school and rental center, all the used kite gear in our arsenal is always for sale. We have fair pricing and a variety of kite styles to suit beginners to advanced kiteboarders. You can buy gear from our friendly team while you’re in Cabarete.
When you’re back at home and thinking of buying kite gear, we are at your service – start your search by emailing our amazing Maxine to find out what’s currently available in the used gear inventory. If you find the right product we’ll figure out the best way to ship it to you. It’s not as quick as buying from Ebay, but the advantage is you’ll know you’re being looked after by someone with the LEK spirit of service and ethical standard to make sure you get the right product for your current level and goals, and in good condition at a fair price.
Buy New Gear from LEK
Nothing feels like flying a brand new kite, or upgrading your board for a high-performance model. If you’ve got the budget this is the way to go! Order from LEK and we’ll make sure you’re choosing the right brand and model and have it shipped directly to your home or office.
All past LEK guests qualify for the “LEK Alumni New Gear Discount” – we will save you money while you treat yourself to a crispy new kite or shiny new board.
Why You Should Buy From LEK
We are here to make the confusing mission of deciding which gear to buy less painful and we will always be at your service and ready to help. LEK has your best interest in mind – we don’t stock large quantities of gear which can sometimes force the wrong gear on a kiter. Between our carefully selected school and rental gear, and our access to drop-shipping from our partner brands, we have the ability to professionally recommend the right equipment for your level, riding locations, and kiteboarding goals.
Our brand partners are industry leaders and the product quality and customer service is guaranteed. Choose from BEST Kiteboarding, Core Kiteboarding, Ozone Kiteboarding, AXIS Kiteboarding, Mystic Kiteboarding – we love these brands. We ride this amazing gear all year long and would love to get you hooked up and out there having way too much fun on the water or snow.
