Step 2: Making the kite

Picture of making the kite
first take 2 edges from the tarp and tie them together with enough string left over to hold on or tie to your harness also make sure to have a good grip because it will drag you down and if you are wearing a harness tie it to the harness

Step 3: Flying it

Picture of flying it
find a windy day and hold up the tarp so that the wind can cacht it and hold on tyte depinding on your tarp sise the wind will take longer if it is biger and shorter if smaller

I once made a kite out of a tarp with a pvc pipe frame. Long story short, it dragged about six people a hundred feet before it hit the beach and self-destructed. (It needed a heavier tail, it had 6 soda cans full of sand {which nearly killed someone } but the kite was still too unstable and would not stay upright in the high winds known to Oregon Beaches).

456acdc5443 (author)  imthatguy11255 years ago
depends on how much wind there is and how big your tarp is

456acdc5443 (author)  imthatguy11255 years ago

do you have a picture of it in the air?
456acdc5443 (author)  pineapplenewton5 years ago

its not really worth our time to try this unless we know it works so without a picture of it working the insttructables not really compleat
