Don't see too many guys posting about kite building, so I thought I'd post a pic of my first go at making a kite. Haven't had a chance to see how it flys yet. It's wasn't too difficult once I learned to sew. Very time consuming, but I think most of the kiteboard I've built have been pretty time consuming as well. Just something else to think about for all you DIY builder out there. I used Surfplan to design and print plans if your interested. www.surfplan.com.au
. There is a free download you can play around with.
Yes, thats a little rip in the canopy in the last pic. My dog ran across it while I was sewing it. It's been patched since the pic was taken.
