Maybe it's slightly off topic. Not exactly long trekking gear unless I used it to traverse the Antarctic or something, which I doubt... for now. I have some material and 1000 feet of spectra line, supplies enough to make two winter Kite skiing kites. Which are considerably smaller than summer kite boarding kites with inflated leading edges and such. Winter ones don't need to be huge, especially for beginners. But have failed on finding a good pattern with a considerable amount of google time invested. Any ideas? And I'd rather not give up and buy one. It would cost zero to make as I already have the stuff.
