Orphan Wala

Two weeks ago I saw something sticking out of a garbage can. It appeared to be a kite and I could not leave it there. A quick inspection told me it was a Wala (maybe a knock off). It was missing the spreaders and something had been chewing on a wingtip.
I felt the need to show this orphan some TLC.
Here's the results..

Replaced both wingtip with a rounded piece of RSN

Nice repair! And kite karma will come your way, for sure.

The kite went to a friendly grandfather who wanted a play kite for his grandchildren to play with in the dunes.
He has promised me pictures.....

Made a "vaporized" version for myself.
Think I fell in love with it.

With vaporized I mean given the looks of the famous Prism kite.
