A small tear can be fixed with nylon repair tape ($2 a yd., intothewind.com). Keep some with you when kite-flying for on-the-go mends. Line up the torn edges, and cover the entire length of the tear plus an additional 3/4 inch on each end with tape. Then turn the kite over and repeat on the other side.
