How to fly your kite
Our kites are very easy to fly. With every kite, you will find written instructions about how to fly your kites.
FOR ALL KITES: do not fly near other people, roads, railways, power lines, or within 5 kilometers of airports. Flying kites in Australia is limited to 100m
Single Line kites
Most of our kites are single-line kites. They are very easy to fly. Check each kite for its specific instructions regarding assembly.
Please note that this kite should be flown in light to medium winds only. Serious damage could be sustained to the kite if it is flown in winds that are too strong.
Launching your kite
Start with your back to the wind and let out about 20-30m of line and get someone to hold the kite into the wind. As the wind blows, gently push the kite up into the air and pull on the line. The kite will rise up into the air.
Controlling your kite
Too much wind will cause the kite to dive about uncontrollably. Bring it back into control by letting the line out or walking towards the kite. Not enough wind will cause the kite to sink to the ground, try walking backward so the kite climbs more to get into an area where the wind is higher.
Stunt kites are dual-line kites that take some getting used to and practice in flying. These instructional videos are very good for helping you to understand all of the parts of your kite and how to get your kite to take off, fly well and land without damage.
