Go Fly A Kite

Get some exercise and go fly a stunt kite this summer! Kidzworld checks out cool stunt kites for you to send to the skies.

Stunt Kites - What Are They?

Stunt kites or sport kites are special kites which are able to do different figures and maneuvers in the air. Sport kites usually have a triangular shape and are controlled with two lines or strings. To control the kite, you pull on the right hand line to turn right and the left line to turn left. By using different combinations of pulls and pushes, you can do various cool tricks, loops and patterns in the sky. More advanced stunt kites have four lines and these can do much more difficult tricks and maneuvers, such as full spins, hovers and backwards flights.
