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.

    Cheer-leading is a sport it is not just for girls it basically gymnastics but in routines its a great way to feel better about yourself and you can learn all sorts of skills there but my tip is if you want to start cheer go to gymnastics first so you can get a bit of flexibility and work from there and if you want to do more advance things like tumbles then practice and being self taught is not a disadvantage its a bonus cheer is nothing like the movies (in some parts yes but not in the drama part its more like fitness than showing off it keeps you in good state in mind agility and visually try it ad see how you feel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) byeeeeeeeeeeeee
