Stunt Kite for Beginner

If you are searching online for stunt 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 long time 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.
  • Stunt 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 freestyle stunt kite 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.
