hey mat!

all that i can tell you so far is that building an inflatable is a hard thing!
it's not cheaper than buying one - if you summ up the material and time that is needet.

inflatables don't have bridles and are steered with the backlines - that means if you don't work exactly (tolerance<0.5cm over the whole wingspan) the kite will fly like crap.

so - if your buddy just wants to make his own kite to safe money, tell him to buy a 2nd hand tubekite.

btw: how's your board-project goin#?
already tested it?
