A Beginner's Guide To Kites

There are so many different kinds of kites in the world that we couldn’t possibly list them all. However, there are certain constants among all of them. We’ve compiled a beginner’s guide to these kites to help folks browsing through a well-stocked kite store like Kitty Hawk Kites. Let’s break it down to the basics.

You Say You Want A revolution

Revolution kites are bowtie-shaped, multi-directional kites which are capable of flying forward, backward, sideways, adjusting speed, stopping, and hovering in any position. Revolutions are controlled using 4 lines, rather than 2, which allows the pilot to control each wing independently. These kites are ideal for stunt kite pilots who are seeking a highly-responsive and precise kite flying experience.
