I like fixing stuff, so I made a little video of how I've fixed a couple of my old tomahawked loaner kites with tears all the way through the canopies. It's helped me keep a few kites in the air that would be trash otherwise. Not the prettiest, but functional!

My next project is splicing some new depower lines for 2 of my naish bars! Corona time is maintenance time Smile

Happy kiting.

splaterwin thank you! I dug around online a few years ago and pieced this method together from the tid bits of information I found. I hope it can be useful to folks 🙂
