Kiteboarding Swap Meet
Posted on March 10th, 2013
SWAP MEET at the XLKITEBOARDING.com shop in Texas City
Kites starting at $100 and up to $1200
Boards starting at $89 and up to $450
Harnesses starting at $45 and up to $189
This swap will be on the 16 of March. This means you only have 1 week to get your used gear to the shop for the sale. The terms are the same this year if you want to sell your gear with one minor change. The prices will lower throughout the day…to try to sell everything by day’s end. We already have a lot of used kites, boards and harnesses so it should be a really good sale this year. Below are the rules and terms for the event.
How the SWAP Meets Works:
1. Customers bring their gear to the shop to get inspected at least a few days before the event.
2. They’ll need to then fill out a gear information and price sheet
3. The day of the event the gear is sold…if the seller chooses to leave the money on his XLKITES account or use it toward a purchase (not used gear), we take NO commission. If they would like a check, we deduct 20% from the proceeds of the sale.
4. If the kite needs to be repaired we will do the repairs and charge the seller, repairs are mandatory if needed before selling any used items.
5. If gear isn’t sold at the event the seller needs to pick it up from the shop as soon as possible. They can alternatively have us sell it in the shop if they arrange it with us ahead of time.
Date: Saturday 16Mar12 2013
Location: 524 9th Ave N, Texas City, TX 77590 (XLKITES Houston Location)
Phone: 281-508-6485, email@example.com
If you’re out of town or not able to make it in person, you can still get in on the action. Used gear will be listed here on our website…make offers over the phone or bid via email for the gear you like. We can’t promise it will all be on there but check in to see what is available.
The Swap Meet is On!
