So, yeah, I've scraped my wing tip a few times on concrete. Is there an easy or at home way to repair this? Maybe reinforce the outer seam/edge? It's the outer protective layer, so maybe it's fine. That's what it's there for?

I've attached 2 photos: 1 of the scraped edge and the other a good edge.

thanks!

It seems to be the weak point on all F-ones. All of mine were perfect except the wing tips.

Gorilla Tape.

Won't look the best, adds a bit of weight, but provides excellent protection at wear points.

Have Airtime Kite repair it, then it will be as good as new.
