Chicago - where to shop traction kite stuff?

Postby questionesse » Wed Oct 05, 2011 9:34 am

Hey there,

I'll be in Chicago for a while in mid October and Iwould like to bring equipment back to Europe.
Is there a store that has serious stuff?
I am looking for a serious traction kite in 10 or 12 square meters. preferably a closed cell with vents like the HQ Matrix or the Flysurfer Unity.
Any options on those?
Trapeze? Mountainboards?

Thx!

The answer to your question is NO. There's not a serious traction kite shop in Chicago.... at least that I know of.

There are vendors here who can order and ship to you. I'm sure they will speak up.

well most shops don't ship to hotel or holiday appartment addresses.
But if some do, let me know :)

also used equipment could be interesting - let me know!

Hello,

I am a Kite Instructor and Ozone Distributor in Chicago and I would be happy to help you. The new Ozone 2012 air foil kites just arrived yesterday and they are so nice! We also have mountain boards, buggies, harnesses, helmets with knits and kite specific snowboards.

As far as air foil demo kites, I have one 4m Access remaining since I have sold the rest of them. Here is the demo gear sale that I am currently having:

DEMO GEAR!
