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 when you’re ready to buy your kite gear.
First Kite Gear Decision: New vs. Used
Consider these three important factors when deciding if you should invest in brand new (more expensive) gear or go for a budget option and buy used kitesurfing kit:
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. You’ll be giving your kite a bit of a beating while you’re perfecting your kiteboarding skills and refining your tastes as you improve your riding level.
2. Your budget – used gear will save you money in the initial investment, however, you may spend more later to upgrade your kite. Our best advice: if you can afford it – go new straight away.
3. Which piece of kiteboarding gear we’re talking about– some gear might be worth buying new, like the most comfortable harness you can find. Other things, like a twintip kiteboard for example, are totally fine to buy used.
Buy Used Gear from LEK In Cabarete
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. Start by talking to your instructor if you’re taking lessons, or ask one of the shop attendants, or Maxine our manager. We love connecting the right gear to the right person!
Buy Used Gear from LEK From Your Home
Back at home and dreaming of your next kite adventure? You can still tap into your friends here at LEK to help get great deals on our used gear. Start your used kiteboarding equipment 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. However, you’ll be working directly with our team, and if you’re our student or in our kiteboarding tribe already then you are familiar with the LEK spirit of service and our extremely high ethical standards. Our team will make sure you get the right product for your current level and goals. We only sell kiteboarding gear in good condition, and at a fair price.
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.
