How to choose a single-line kite, stunt kite or power kite
Advice on choosing the right kite
Choosing a kite with the right shape:
Single-line kites: Single line kites are designed for a safe introduction to kite-flying and are easy to assemble and fly. The kite only has one line, so it can't be steered. Smaller models are particularly suitable for children (3 years and older).
The smaller models (PW 0.9, 1.2, 1.9) that are steered with two lines are easy to control, and are safe and fun to fly. Bigger wings are designed for experienced kite flyers who know how to control the power of the wind. Wings are controlled with 4 lines for added balance and better handling. Power kites with a surface area from 2.4 to 6 sq m can be used as tow kites for land-based devices (kite boarding, kite buggies, etc.). Power kites are not suitable for watersports.
Preferably select models with Dyneema® lines (steering line) for greater precision.
The latter are less stretchy.
Stunt kite frames can be made from carbon (light and stiff) or fibreglass (heavier but tougher). Power kites don't have a frame, but are reinforced for maximum strength.
-Sunglasses, sunscreen and a cap.
-A kite repair kit, spare tubes and lines that are suited to the wind speed.
-Your UV protection t-shirt.
-Don't fly your kite during a storm or close to roads, overhead power lines, people, animals or airports.
-In case of danger, let go of the lines.
-Make sure each tube is pushed all the way into the rubber connectors.
