How TO Fly Kites Guide


Kite flying is easy to learn and it will be a great fun for everyone.










Here are some points which you would like to take note of when flying a kite:

  • Upon picking your desire kite,
  • Find an open space which is clear and open area.
  • Refrain from power line, airport and road.
  • No kite flying during wet or stormy weather,
    because electricity is attracted to damp kite lines and foolish kite fliers. (Wet line is conductive!)
  • Avoid trees, they eat kites. Do not allow your flying lines, to touch any bystander.
  • Children should be in adult's care and instructed to fly kites.
  • Suitable for children over 3years old.
  • Giant kites are easy to fly with little wind as the surface area is large.
  • The Strength of the giant kites is very strong. For adult 18 and above only



Stand with your back to the wind -
Hold your kite up by the bridle point and let the line out.
If there is sufficient wind, your kite will go right up.
Let the kite fly away from you a little, then pull in on the line as the kite points up so it will climb.
Repeat this until your kite gains the altitude necessary to find a good steady wind.

Light Wind? -
Have a friend or partner to take the kite downwind and hold it up.
On command, your friend/partner will release the kite and the flier pulls the line hand-over-hand while the kite gains altitude.
Practice this high-launch technique.

Alone? -
Prop the kite up against a bush, post, or wall.
Reel out enough line for altitude and simply pull the kite aloft.
If the kite sinks tail first, there might not be enough wind.
If it comes down head first or spins, there might be too much wind.
Different kites fly in different winds.

Bridles -
If your kite has an adjustable bridle, move it higher (nearer the top) in higher winds,
and lower (towards the tail) in lower winds. (Adjust no more than 1/2" at a time.)
Tails: Adding tails to the kite helps it to remain stable in stronger winds.
Use light-weight materials to decorate.

Generally, you need less wind to fly than you may think it is.
If the strong winds are blowing and you find it hard to walk against it,
you'll have a battle on your hands, even if your kite does fly.
Whereas, steady, gentle breezes are more ideal for kite flying (:
