In 1986, Airtime was founded as a specialty outerwear manufacturer in Hood River, Oregon. But that was soon to change...
In the summer of 2000, kiteboarding began to established itself as a legitimate sport in Hood River. The sport was now larger than just a few pioneers, and a number of distributors decided that the Gorge was the place to set up shop. With all kite manufacturing taking place overseas it was necessary to have a local manufacturing facility that could provide warranty repairs and alterations to rectify manufacturing flaws. No one was in a better position to fill this role than Airtime.
In the summer of 2001 Airtime expanded to become a full fledged kite repair facility with warranty contracts and a growing list of wholesale clients. In 2002, Airtime filled a void in the market and introduced their own line of aftermarket bladders. Quickly, Airtime was recognized as the leading aftermarket bladder provider.
Today, Airtime kite is recognized as the ultimate provider of kite repairs and the world leader in aftermarket bladders. Though it has grown, Airtime kite continues to be a family run business with the goal of providing the very best services and products at a competitive price. MACkite has been operating with Airtime Kite to fix any busted or broken bladders, and we recommend it to any of our customers who aren't looking to summon their inner handy man (or woman).
