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.

    considering rooney is a man united legend, and has scored the all time number of goals, i think people are being a bit harsh on him at the moment. i watched carrack's testimonial not long ago, and in honesty i couldn't really tell him apart from those who have retired but his heart is in united and he's a class player. maybe it's time for him to step aside for the newer players to start building on united's success, and play less games but the lads on social media calling him out for every second he's not training, or demanding we drop him i think need to calm down. this is a proper legend, and we should respect his commitment to the team. thoughts?

    manchester has been & will always be great we just need to put more trust in the younger players. maybe some new additions to the team would help, but all in all i think it's been decent.
