Quoting:
Learning how to make surfing kites doesn't have to be such a daunting task. With a little patience and know how, you can have a high-flying kite surfing kite in an hour or less time. Remember that if it doesn't turn out just right the first time to try, try again!

Things you will need for a kite surfing kite:
String
Piece of Card Board or Poster Board
Fabric Design of Choice (5ft x 5ft piece)
Fabric Glue
Super Glue
Dowel Rods (2)
Scissors
Knife
Piece of Ribbon (5 foot long)

some guys have no time, but the money...they rather kite in their little spare time instead of gluing a kite together, that might waste their precious time!

Who needs a $2500 Speed3?

I need it! that's why I bought it!
Someone gets fun when creating something with their hands, but there is also someone who likes to get finished and quality product. it's called freedom of choice and I like it too! :)
PS: Internet has many sites that teach you how to make a car, how to make planes and even how to make a spaceship! but this does not mean that you will make a good car, good airplane, spaceship or kite....

Not too many places have these kites? Particularly the 21m size?
