Here's a collection of short and funny jokes about kites and their use as an entertainment and sports object. Take a look at a few clever riddles, hilarious one-liners, silly parodies, smart double entendres and spicy puns involving kites and kiteboarders: A kid lets go of a kite, and his father tells him: "Son, not everything is better wireless.
He let it go. Album) my kite stuck in a tree is not my favorite thing in the world. But it's up there. Life is like a kitesurfing kite. Occasionally, you get zapped by lightning. He told me to buy a Album). Before attaching the keels, i sewed them together in rows of keel and 3, with the correct overlap. This was much easier than to try and align them on the bottom piece. Measure out where they are going to be, and put them on one row at a time.
I gave every row of keels a double seam, to make sure they stay in place even in harder winds. Starting at one end, combine the side that's already on the top sheet with the edge of the bottom sheet. Always seams on the inside, remember that.
Then just work your way down the 11 ribs, and combine the halves one by one. If you measured and cut accurately, it should fit that every second rib will sit directly above a keel. For the final side, flip the kite inside out, to get the seam on the inside. Since the openings are so big, this really wasn't any problem. When all the ribs are done it's time for the final seam - the trailing edge. Both halves should have a dacron reinforced edge, so align those, and fold them over in half, essentially creating 4 layers of dacron.
Do a double seam on the trailing edge. To make the bridle lines, i made a handy little tool first. It was simply a board, with two nails in it, spaced 50cm apart. In between there was a ruler, so when i needed a bridle say A1 - mm, i could simply wrap it around 7 times and measure out the last 45 cm on the ruler. This meant it only took a few hours to measure and cut all 21 bridle lines. When you make them, put a little masking tape tag on them, and write down the letter and number, otherwise it will be impossible to figure out which one goes where.
Make a simple loop on either end, and make sure they're the same size. Then put half of the loop inside the bridle loops on the keels, and thread the whole thing through itself. This Album) you don't have any annoying knots on the kite, and you can make sure you get the correct length. You need 3 people to launch it, or 2 and an anchor. I recommend wearing gloves, and keep an eye out for those bridle lines!
If the wind catches the kite, and you're in the way of a bridle line, you will get hurt, so be careful. Start by holding it at the opening, stretching it out to fill it with air.
Once that's done, make sure the front row of bridle lines are tight, and then walk down the kite, while making stretching it out to keep the airflow going in. You should start to see it rise up with the front end more and more, until you're holding it in the very corners on the trailing edge. At this point all bridle lines should be tight, and on a coordinated cue, let go of the corners and watch it fly. Seeing it in the air first time was amazing, all that hard work, and it just flew like a dream.
Rock solid in the sky, and with a massive pull. It is so gentle to look at, but trying to hold it by hand is a workout and a half. I would suggest having some sort of anchor, because holding it for longer periods is very hard. To take it down, put on some gloves, and pull the line to the ground at the anchor. Then grab the next half meter, and bring it down to the ground and continue like that. Don't try and reel it in, that's simply not possible, instead just walk it down until you reach the snap hook.
Packing it down is not too fancy, i just found a big bag that i stuff it into. I give a little extra attention to the bridle lines though, it's just not fun to spend the first half hour untangling those.
I hook the snap hook in a shoe-box and gently place the lines inside, trying to not make a mess. That's it! This is a big project, it's difficult and a little expensive, but i really enjoyed it and it is definitely not the last giant kite i make.
I hope i have inspired some of you to try it, i was a complete novice at this, but i managed to get through it, so if you're looking for at summer project, this is a very rewarding one. You get a kite that you can launch whenever the weather allows it, and it definitely pulls some attention at the beach. If you liked the instructable, i have entered it in the "Make it fly" and the "Beyond the comfort zone" contests, i would be tremendously happy if you gave it a vote.
Thanks for reading, feel free to ask any questions! What a great Kite, it reminds me of the Kite and the gentleman who flew it at an early Kite day at Wells next the sea in Norfolk, England.
His was about the same size but completely flat, no air pockets. It was made out of Television Arial's and the covering was early Sale Cloth. The Gentleman had a home made winch bolted to his Mercedes and incorporating his towing hook.
It was really impressive. He sat in the boot with legs either side of the winch and payed out the cord. On that day the Sky was the Limit and that's what happened. It rose to about ft and then the cord snapped it just floated up, up, up and away.
The scouts found it 5 miles away in a field. He said that at one Six Bags Of Confetti - Head Like A Kite - There Is Loud Laughter Everywhere (CD the car had towed him and his car a fair distance, handbrake on and someone with their foot on the brake. How about you show us all how to make a Large Cody.
Reply 3 years ago. Not quite, but i haven't tested it in strong winds yet, i don't really dare to, it would be a shame to break it. I did actually make that when i made the kite. I thought I might as well make it scaleable,while I was at it. Reply 4 years ago. I'm hoping to ; I just don't know if I dare to test the kite out in such high winds, it would be such a shame to destroy it. If i can get it to a line tow of kg it should be able to lift me off the ground i think, Album), but that would be pretty hard winds.

It's got a lot more energy than HLAK's first CD, to the point where a few songs (Big FM Radio Hit, Daydream Vacation, Six Bags of Confetti) almost skirt the pop genre.
