Fibreglass Framed Kites:
These kites have Fiberglass frames and they are great for first-time flyers and old hands getting back into kiting.
They are very strong & rugged and will give you heaps of fun at the beach or the park. They represent good value and fly much better then they should for their price!
What’s the difference between them? Mostly size. As you scroll down the kites will get bigger, from the small Stinger at 1.1 meters right up to the Firestorm at 1.8 meters.
Which one do we recommend? “Buy the biggest one you can afford” The bigger the kite the easier it is to control, the greater it’s pull and the wider it’s wind range.
(that mean’s more days when you can play with it!)
Carbon Framed Kites:
Serious high performance! Carbon Graphite frame technology offers the finest possible in Precision Flying.These kites very light but v-v-very rigid. They will out perform both in lighter winds but also in stronger winds.
What is Performance? Carbon framed kites will be much faster, generate more pull and be very precise & accurate in the sky.This means you can fly straighter runs, do crisper turns & faster tricks! As the Best in the World, carbon frames are used in all World Kite Championships.
These are very fast, highly maneuvreable and v-very precise. The Best of kiting.
What do we recommend? The Backdraft probably offers best value for money but the Offshore is really awesome!
Power kites are foil kites…no frames, they just fill with air.
These are very powerful and produce very strong pull for their size. Called Traction Kites, we use them to pull us around…on the beach, on grass, in the water… .
Definitely NOT for young kids!
What the difference between them? Size therefore power. A 2.4m foil generates nearly twice the pull of a 1.8m foil and a 3 meter is twice again.
Which do we recommend?Get either a small 1.5 meter (for young teenagers) or go straight to the 3 meter one, don’t muck around in the middle!
