The repair Centre has been fully renovated with new Carpet and we have now over 200 rolls of fabrics and more then 11000 meters of different paragliding lines.
Avoid boxes as the post office will then charge you as cubic weight instead of scale weight.
Equipment posted to us is usually under 6kg and should cost you one way $40 or under.
Make sure you round the corners so it cannot be measured.
If you have a Concertina bag, post it with your glider. Much better for your Paraglider and much easier for us to pack your glider!!
Please write your name, return address and PHONE NUMBER on your parcel.

A few years ago Jiri was planning to fly from Sand Patch to Salmon hole but made it all the way to Bold head.
Conditions were light and challenging but he made it all the way to the Bold Head. The end of that beautiful coast line. First time and only time still to this days, we know it is possible !!
He flew back from Bold Head to Salmon Holes,where he landed, the flight took just over 2 hours to complete.
You can see below his flight track, if you have google Earth it gets even better, it can be in 3D!!!
The flight path is shown on the image below (click to see a larger image), or open the file here on Google Drive to get more details. You can also download it then open using Google Earth to see altitude during the flight.
