Kitty Hawk Kites Online Store
We had a shirt as a gift. Being out of town we could not get back soon to the store. We wanted to see if we could exchange it for the same shirt different size. Through an email I received I heard back from Kirsten Bissill. She never had a negative vibe toward my bazillion emails. She checked other locations with no success. Finically she offered to do a gift card so that we could at least get the credit for the exchange of something else online. I sent the shirt back and she quickly turned around an email with our credit. She offered nothing the best customer services. Being in the stat e of SC she made this process very easy. I thank you Kirsten Bissill very much for all you did for us.
Kitty Hawk kites performed like the big dogs, Amazon couldn't have done a better job expediting an item so small and so low in cost as an OBX license plate and arrived in a timely manner, thanks for your efficient system of shipping and customer service.
Love this mobile. First off, it has no loud noise, just a muted flutter sound. It spins beautifully with little breeze. Very relaxing to sit and watch.
Acquired this line for heavier winds and flying stacks. I had several older style #150 lines from kits but they are all thicker, heavier and less visible than this set. The yellow dye helps to distinguish it from other weights and the sleeving is very strong/tight. It is harder to unwind line with the included card winder than with most others I've used due to the angle & length of fins; so I did transfer this line to another spare winder card. One thing worth mentioning is that the loops are much smaller than other manufacturers as well; which is initially harder to thread via Larks Head Knot over large lead knots but keeps the connection very snug once tensioned. This line was used on several different sport & foil kites in 10-25mph conditions and am very pleased with it overall.
I bought this for my grandson for Christmas and he LOVED it! His dad (my son) actually loved it even more and asked where his was! It seemed well made and having the scope and strap made it so much fun for him.
Looking at getting back into kite flying and received exceptional customer service and knowledge from Kirsten. After our conversation, I felt confident about the purchase 2 new kites (Revolution Reflex XX and Prism 4-D. I will use her in the future for all my kite flying needs. If you're considering kite flying, please give her the opportunity to earn your business. Onward, Jeff
Online chat was very helpful for my service. Item showed out of stock. Chat person checked item and found new shipment coming in next day. Helped me with the order and what else I needed and did not need. Shipment arrived in a few short days, properly and intact. Thanks KHK
KHK's "cool" color Nexus is the perfect addition to my existing stack of standard color Nexus kites. I took it out in varied 6-18 mph winds and it performed every bit as fast & agile as the other Nexus kites with improved visibility over the standard “blue” scheme thanks to the purple center panels and perfectly matched 60” tail which is longer & wider than the standard ones that are purchased separately. The sleeve bag is just perfect too since it saves a lot of weight and space whilst letting the leading edge stay assembled for quicker setup/storage. A great value for any sport kite beginner to enthusiast.
Of course, the customer support from Kirsten was excellent and shipping timely too. Would definitely purchase kites from Kittyhawk again.
Beautiful wind whirly bird. Ordered it for my son last year. He loves it. The tail feathers spin so gently! Ordered another for a Christmas gift for relatives in California. Thank you Kitty Hawk Kites. Your items are always top notch!
Shipped on time. Arrived undamaged. I worked on UH34 in Marines. Seems to be sturdy to hold up in my windy area. Very happy with purchase.
I just bought a Revolution quad kite and Synapse para foil kite, this is my fourth purchase from Kitty Hawk Kites. Kirsten is absolutley
the best customer service person I have ever dealt with. I can buy online anywhere, but I choose to deal with KHK because of Kirsten and her knowledge and quick response to my questions. KHK and Kirsten have set the standard that all businesses should aspire to!!!
What a beautiful kite! I can' wait to try it out. Kitty Hawks Kites is great! Fast free shipping! Great support team members! Go Kitty Hawk!
I got exactly what I ordered and it came quickly and in perfect shape
Wonderful team person helped me find exactly what I needed - always a good experience with KHK.
Excellent quick delivery & very happy with the quality! Packaged nicely, easy to put together & on a barely any wind day we were able to get the kite aloft with minimal effort! Looking forward to many years of fun with these colorful & easy to use kites; with more wind will be able to easily fly high! Hubby & Son in law were impressed and the gift was a birthday hit. A great value too; after reading many negative reviews on Amazon for cheap defective kites, I’m happy I sought to purchase directly from your co. Will do so again!
Love this winder soo much, I bought two of them. I had one of these years ago but lost it in a move. I actually use this winder to wind up and store the Prism 75 foot long tube tail. It fits great on the winder and is easy to unwind and deploy.
Small enough to carry in my ditty bag with spare line and odds and ends. Sturdy but light weight. Made well.
Custom KHK Quantum Stunt Kite that I received is great. The picture on the website doesn't do it justice. The shipping and delivery was fast. I'm 2300 miles away and I ordered it 10 days ago and it's been here for , at least, a couple of days. I will not hesitate ordering from KHK again and I have always liked the Prism line of kites.
Great and easy way to secure your kite [s] when beach flying. For larger kites 10-13ft its best to dig a hole, place anchor in ground, fill with sand and angle straps in the direction the kite will be pulling from (downwind). Two anchors can be arranged on the more windy days if necessary. It is well made, have used them for years. This is my third purchase. KHK has a great on-line website , easy to use and order from. If you're not sure of something you can always call and their knowledgeable staff will help you.
I love my Hoffmann's Canard Delta! This is a really great flying kite!! I love the design of the kite. It has great wow factor. I fly it with 150lb line and it just soars. But, I have to admit that I am not crazy about the tube tail. The tube tail that comes with the kite, seems to me, looks a bit interesting. It doesn't quite fit the over all look of the kite. But I will not hesitate to use it in stronger winds, for it does give the kite good stability. So, I bought three (3) yellow 24ft transition tails for this kite and MAN!, it makes the kite look super cool and I still get great stability! I am very satisfied with this kite. It has quickly become one of my favorites to fly.
I would also like to thank Kitty Hawk Kites for their good customer service!
Wow is this kite awesome!!!!! We just got it and for fun pulled it out, I held up the head which is big as I am! The material is very nice and well made. We took a pic and then another pic with the flash on....holy moly it glowed bright white!!!!!!! Can’t wait to fly this at night and shine a light on it. Thinking about hanging it from our float pole with a light for Halloween-that’s how cool it looks.
We own 3 of the 12ft skeletons and all are great.
First, I was super excited that KHK carries exclusive color schemes for many of the kites they sell. Also, I really appreciate the quick turnaround time and free shipping.
The Prism 4D is an amazing little kite. It flew, with some effort, in 0 wind and handled all the abuse I could give it. I was not gentle. After 2 hours of wind gusts in the double digits and my indelicate handling, and the 4D was still in 1 piece. It being a Prism, I look forward to many hours of flight on this kite!
Makes retrieving your kite so much quicker and easier than the conventional manual method.
Good investment and definitely recommend this!!
I just love these. I have now purchased 10! For myself and friends. The service provided by Kitty Hawk Kites is astonishingly speedy! I will be a returning customer. I appreciate the fact that a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the whirly mobiles goes back to the artisan in Thailand. Thank you for that.
Bought one of these about while on a business trip to the west coast a couple of years ago, as a gift for my kids. Finally had a chance to fly it this weekend at the English seaside, its great! Very high quality feeling spool and line, and once the the wind was over 10mph there was no stopping it. I was just able to let the spool spin on my fingers while it climbed.
