Today I found a small tear on the leading edge of my Duotone inflatable wing after sailing. Surprisingly the inner bladder has not been leaking air while in use. I'm wondering if I should have it repaired by professionals or just tape it up with sail tape. BTW, does anyone know of good wing repair pros in the San Francisco Bay Area? Thanks.
