    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).
