I've made one out of 1/8'th inch door skin. 151x51, as long as the kite in the air the board could keep you up. The bottom layer is 151x51 then another layer ~130x40 then yet another just big enough to go under my feet.

Very little rocker and only fins on the heel side. I just glued up the sheets the polyurethaned the whole thing. So far it has held up well, even if it breaks I'm out all of $30.
