Hello everybody!
I need some help! Few days ago flying my Trifoiler at 32 MPH, I got the rudder blade exploded!
Can anyone suggest where to find a new rudder?
Thank you so much in advance.
Ciao
Steor

From Europe... the rudder would have to be ordered through Hobie Cat Europe. www.hobie-cat.net

Thank you Matt,
for your reply.
What is your feeling? Do you think that should be possible to find one rudder?
Thank you
Ciao

Dear Matt,
as per your suggestion I sent an e-mail to the Italian Hobie representative and I also wrote to the Hobie Europe but during this week I had no answer.
Have you any alternative channel into Hobie, to have a contact with somebody that can help me?
Thank yoy very much.

Stefano
