Personally I'd sew a patch over the hole. Use some ripstop (AIRX 600 or similar) anda man made thread (bonded nylon) and sew it on with a few rows of stitches. I would have thought it would be plenty stronger than glueing a patch. Try taking it to a salemakers, they'll have all the stuff there ready...

this big?

heh, practice and over powered conditions.

Dunes angle the wind from horizontal to a few more degees towards vertical, giving you that extra lift.

Buy some second hand gear. Try the board here (USED GEAR) and get something like a Wipika or Naish. A year ot two years old will be a great kite at under half price. Ok, it'll be a bit worn and may have some damage, but you're a beginner, and like it or not, you will crash the kite many times. Posta...
