How about a strutless kite where you insert pool noodles into a pocket to serve as the leading edge which is properly supported by multiple bridle points. Could be very affordable and easy to travel with. Can find pool noodles wherever you go.

Wow that really sums things up. Way to go kid!
I bet v2 will be more responsive more durable freestyle better and boost higher and yet will be the same exact kite haha

If someone donates shipping cost I will donate a good condition (used) harness. Spread the stoke!
