Step 4: String it up

put a hold about the size of a quarter in the top it gets more stabilized and it sucks air in more and it goes higher

Technically, what you have made here is a drogue - it generates no lift, just drag.

Fasten the string higher up, so that the frame tilts towards the flier, and you might get lift, but you'll probably need a tail as well.

Fun make, though.
Will something like this create enough drag to pull a person across the street on a skateboard? given the right amount of wind.

Maybe hypothetically.  If there is enough wind and enough kites than it will work.  Please post a movie of you're attempt.

actually I've made one of these before and they are fun if u have a little wind and no kite on hand. To bad it has no lift.

I was looking for something like this for quite a while. Only question: in the intro the plastic bag is with bottom and in step 3 the bottom is cut off?

Thanks for the nice comment.  The bottom is there in all the steps but in some it might appear that way.  The first three pics show a different bag then the other ones.
