Kites prefer to fly in light to
moderate winds. They are made from lightweight materials, so the
wind can lift them up and hold them in the sky.
No kites like to fly in heavy, gusty
or strong winds. This can cause them to become unstable and crash,
or put too much pressure on the fabric and stitching.
When sport kites hit the ground or get dragged along
the ground, damage will occur.

Sport kites require good coordination and are not
recommended for children under 8.
If you have not flown a sport kite before and are
unsure about which one would suit best, please check out the Sport
Kite Info page or email me
with your queries.
Kites come in colours as shown, but may vary from
time to time.

The Hype is an easy to set-up two-line sport kite, suitable
for all skill levels. Flying the Hype does not require any
prior kiting experience, as it's docile flying behaviour ensures
that there are no sudden power surges when flying the kite
through the wind-window.
The larger sizes are suitable for more experienced flyers,
but may have too much pull for lightweight flyers, especially
in summer winds in New Zealand.
Made in ripstop nylon with 18 m Dyneema lines, supplied with
flight straps. Comes in a zipped bag.
