Introduction: Tarp Kite

a cool kite that can make you fly

Step 1: What You Need

a big tarp

some rope

a harness if you dont whant to hold on to the string

Step 2: 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

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

Step 4: Have Fun

have fun but be careful I got hurt doing this so im not reasposible of any injury's

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).
