Design Your Own Bow Kite

surfplan bow kite design softwareEric Wilhelm of Instructibles turned me onto what has become the industry standard kite design software - SURFPLAN which has both a free download as well as a professional version. YOU can design and create your own kitesurf kite. Check it out - fun to toy with. The free, hobbyist version download page is HERE. Contact David Aberdeen at for the pro version.

If you want to take it all the way, Fred of BlogKite also knows of several factories in China where you can get your kites made....

I am so glad I found your blog! I have just been complaining how all the kites are designed for the male kiter in mind. I have just bought a 10m EH Beast - hardly a beauty, the graphics look like a beer bottle label. And to call a kite 'Beast' - a bit butch isn't it! So I am thinking of designing a pink kite and call it 'Princess' or something. Thanks for the tip!
