    Now that the V3 is out there are quite a few R1V2s hitting the second hand market at prices that are acceptable to the average punter. I thought I would post a few tips I have found on keeping used R1V2s as good as possible. These are great kites, so easy to use, amazing range and speed. They have performance I will likely never be good enough to fully appreciate. But I like freerace style, and cheating god in light winds. Buying one second hand is a great option.
    I have a 15m that is third hand. It was used by 2 previous owners with better skills than me and I'm guessing had done a couple of hundred hours by the time I got it. It had a few small pinholes that I patched. It rode well for a while but despite tuning it then developed instability issues and as I'm not so skilled it went in the water a few times and would get wet very fast. Despite all its use the canopy looks in great shape when inflated. Provided there are no blown cells I don't think it is canopy deterioration that is a problem with well used foil kites. At the advice of Ozone I purchased a new bridle. It took a few hours to replace but what a difference that made. I know there are some who wax on about restretching bridle lines but thats too complex and repetitive for me.The investment in a new bridle was worth it. Then I sprayed the canopy with a product called CRC Aqua Armour. The 15m took about 3 cans so cost about $75 to do the whole kite. It is not a total sealant but is a hydrophobic waterproofing spray. I found the kite inflated harder, and takes about 3 times as long to deflate, so I assume it is sealed better in general. If I put the tip in the water the water literally falls off and the kite does not get wet. I have had the kite in the water for 20mins at one stage and still managed to water relaunch it. After 6 months of use I think I need to respray the tips, but most of the canopy is still good. I do think it added 100-200 grams to the weight of the kite so probably extreme low end is not so good. But for someone like me who has a habit of sticking his foil kite in the water it has been a good thing to do. Only downside is that if you do put the kite in the drink and water gets inside the canopy tends to retain droplets inside itself so you need to fly the kite for a while to dry out the inside properly.
    I also have an 11m with less hours but I managed to blow out about 5 cells. I think it happened by trying to lift the kite when full of water, rather than a hard kite crash. A friend told me how to do "open heart surgery" on the kite to repair the internal struts and it seems to have worked perfectly. You need to accept that the kite is basically stuffed as a race kite as it is so cutting it open is only a step forward. Basically you blow up the kite with a garden blower, identify the blown cells...it will be the internal struts between the two bulging cells. Cut a slit in one of the cells about 15-20 cm in the middle of a cell along its length, reach in and identify the torn material and stick it back together with lightweight spinnaker repair tape. Then patch the cut on the cell. Blow it up and bingo... You'll probably never on-sell it but once you have blown cells its game over on that front anyway. At least it flies properly again and you can use it till its dead.
    Much as I would like a shiny new kite I find it hard to justify the cost of a new racefoil, so for the weekend freeracer like me this is a great option to get a cheaper high performance kite second hand and nurse a couple more seasons out of it.
