If you are looking online at kites for beginners, you will find as much information as different kites. – So we’d like to mention a couple of useful pointers to consider for you from our experience:
Most beginners don’t like to spend a lot money on their first kite, even if it would be sensible to do so, because quality has its price.
Size matters, but bigger is not necessarily better.
Beginners like to fly kites in high winds. When tree branches are swaying or the waves are high, is considered “great kite weather”. For that reason a beginners kite has to be robust.
Starters will push kites to their limits. Best to chose strong materials, like ripstop nylon for the sail and a solid carbon frame.
Kites for beginners have to be easy to fly, be capable of all basic moves and they shouldn’t be too sensitive to control and steer either.
A beginner kite should fly consistently in all areas of the wind’s power zone.
Most beginners are far away from tricks and freestyle flying, for that reason a pure freestyler is not recommended as a very first kite.
Always have a look at the whole package and its contents. It is important that stunt kites for beginners come with a good set of braided flying lines, two hand straps (not reels) and a decent kite bag to store your lines and kite.
Our Colours-in-motion (CIM) range ticks all the right boxes for a great experience for a stunt kite novice. Read more …

You still can avail of free shipping for orders over €150 or pick up your kite in our shop …
Looking for a lifter kite suitable for KAP (Kite Aerial Photography)? – KAP is less noisier than drones and you only need batteries for your camera. 🙂
The Box Delta is a combination of a Delta and a classic box kite.
The Box Delta combines the advantages of both kites: a large sail area and several surfaces for stabilisation. This kite is suitable for KAP because of its stable flying properties. It will lift small cameras, smart phones, GoPro cameras or line laundry.
The Box Delta is stabilised by the large sail areas and the box element. The special construction offers a very good lift and a wide wind range. The kite withstands even bumpy coastal winds.
