New Life for Old Windsurfing Sails and Kites

Rescued from the "going to the dump" pile at Gear Swaps or garages, old windsurfing sails and kites are given new life as one of a kind bags, wallets and other useful items. Each item is lovingly crafted in Hood River, Oregon from carefully selected sails and kites that have sailed and flown the mighty Columbia River but have gone into retirement. But have no fear! There is life after retirement! These bags and wallets are lightweight, sturdy, washable and water resistant. How practical is that? The fun part is they are colorful and contain elements of their former life and no two are the same!
