Default Kite selling advice

I have 2 05 Yarga's (15 and 11) that are in great shape and have only been used a few times and I'm thinking of selling them. Where is a good place to sell them and any ideas on a price?
Ebay?
CL?
Thanks in advance,
Robert

Ebay, and unfortunately, while they are certainly worth some decent money you probably won't get much more than $200 each for them unless you are real lucky.

Sell them both and buy an 08 waroo or other bow which will cover both wind ranges.. like maybe a 12M or 13M?

I sold my 06 15M yarga for $200 a year ago, and my 05 13M for $175 (or $150, cant remember).

My suggestion would be to set the buy it now price at around $200 and the starting bid at $125 or $150... (if you want a quick sale at $200). If you are willing to be patient to may get a little more.

Traditional C kites just don't seem to sell good these days. Good luck I hope you do better than that.

www.ikitesurf.com

probably won't get much for them, as they are C kites and pretty old. even though they haven't been used much, it's old technology.

If u do ikitesurf, beware of the many many scam attempts you will get.

Accept only paypal or USPS money order (and cash it at the post office NOT your bank before you mail anything).

I put two kites on iKitesurf for the last month. One legit guy from Wisconsin contacted me and made an offer on one of the kites. I got seven scam emails from the usual Yahoo mail address losers talking about cashier's checks and agents picking up my kites, even though my ads noted with extreme specificity that the fraudsters should suck a summer sausage and not waste their breath on me.

I think I'll just use eBay and take what the market will bear. iKite's marketplace sucks compared to how it used to be.
