Here’s just a few examples of what you can use it on:

  • Jeans

  • Handbags
  • Tents

…anything else that has a zip on it!

Fixing a rip in the nylon canopy of a kite is easy using a STORMSURE TUFF Tape patch. Simply stick the patch over the rip and press firmly. Any time a surf kite is on the ground there is a chance that you can catch the nylon on something sharp like a stone, twig or piece of wire.

TUFF Tape is ideal for sails, kites and inflatable bladders. It is brilliant stuff! It is made of thin film polyurethane with a self adhesive backing. Peel off the paper, and carefully place the patch onto the fabric. You need to avoid creases and fold/bubbles in the patch if at all possible.

Guaranteed to get you back on the water in seconds.

Use TUFF Tape for and instant fix on simple rips on nylon fabric and cuts and leaks in the inflatable bladders. If you have burst the  bladder at the seams you need to use the Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive glue.

You can use the small Kite and Surf Repair Kit (RRP £5.50) or the larger Water Sports Repair Kits (RRP £9.99)  There is enough material in the larger kit to mend your wetsuit, wellies and boat cover too. In fact, it will stick to so many things; I have patched both wetsuits, airbeds, hiking trousers and cracked plastic buckets with it.

Now it’s the the end of the holidays it is time for repairing your wet boots before you put them away. Next year you will not want to find them in poor shape on the day you need to use them. Repair them with StormOprene Contact Adhesive; It sticks really well to both neoprene and rubber and it cures in just a few minutes.


It is different to our Stormsure Flexible Adhesive as it requires no curing time and is specific to neoprene and rubber.

We suggested washing the item in fresh water if it’s been in salt water and dry it thoroughly before using the adhesive.

Apply the glue to both side of the material with a spatula and wait until it is touch dry. This should take about 2-3 minutes.


Apply firm pressure to the area and hold for several seconds to ensure both sides of the adhesive make contact and are securely in place.  The item should stick instantly.


For other footwear use our Stormsure Boot, Shoe and Wader Repair Kit.  This comes with our incredible Flexible Repair Adhesive, which is also ideal for repairing worn away grips on the soles of your wet boots and climbing shoes.
