Very nice!
Exact sewing, the tube looks absolute symmetrical :thumb:
Which kite and size did you "upcycle"?

That is brilliant Andre - nice job - particularly clever on the graphics

I have a quiver of Agilus for hydrofoiling and love them. I have had sometimes a problem with a bit of low pressure hooding on the canopy in a line behind the leading edge (this was especially a problem in my first build where I used cheap ripstop which stretched after a couple of hours flying) - I think yours is showing this a bit too? What do you think Pantau?

Hello stevet thanks for the feedback, it was still a few hours and i fly more as i used cutting fabric from other equipment of an old 14m kite but in good condition, i haven't had this problem yet, now i'm waiting for a good wind moment to test it in the water , more seems to be very good for an artezanal kite ..

I'm analyzing about placing some 4mm nylon straps along the fabric to improve the rigidity of the kite, but I was surprised how this kite flies easily with little wind or almost no incredible wind performance
