Building a ply kite board is fun and sort of cheap but to do it right you still probably spend some money.
You can make a 3kg one that's ok but not very poppy.
or a heavy heavy one that is stiff.
You need plywood with very thin plies and no knots, either birch, marine ply or aircraft ply.
Lots of info on the net and this site. keep looking.
1/2 inch or 12mm thick is enough.
If you glue it up from 2 or 3 thinner layers it is easier to put rocker in it.
It is something for fun, more than saving money.
You could take weeks to make it and spend $200 easy unless you already have tools, etc.
Or you could buy a good used board tomorrow for a similar amount of money.
Whatever,
good luck,
search the forum, plenty info here.

BTW graphics are retarded,.don't bother.
