This is a 30-meter (~98-foot) blue whale kite constructed by Peterlynn Kites. I guess it's kind of a balloon kite though because it's inflated. Want your own?

Of course if you get the small one you should expect everyone else on the beach to make fun of you. Hey, look at that poor bastard with the little 8-meter whale kite -- I bet he sleeps in his car! "What car?" LOLOL.
