This was my first foil kite, and it was a lot of fun. It took a little bit of adjusting on my part, but once I figured out how to fly in the edges of the wind window with it, and once I started making mostly punch turns, it became more and more fun. I even got my 10 year old son flying it, and after only about 15 minutes, he was able to do some nice power dives and low passes.
Unfortunately I didn't even have the opportunity to ever get to see the kite I purchased, much less fly it. It was stolen from me before I ever laid my eyes on it. Talk about crap luck. Just to add the icing to the cake, this happened the day before my birthday.
I figured I should look for a new hobby during quarantine and here’s where I ended up. The synapse 140 is an incredible stunt kite for people of all ages. It’s super easy to get into the air and flies brilliantly in a steady breeze. If your looking for a more thrilling experience I recommend the synapse 200 or any of the tantrum models.
What a great purchase! My 7 year old was so excited when this came in the mail that he had to try it right away. Despite it being a rainy day with almost no wind, he easily got his kite airborn. After about half an hour and a few shaky flights, he was able to keep it in the air and do a few figure eights. After a couple weeks, we're still enjoying it and learning new tricks.
Shipping was surprisingly quick giving our current situation and prices our competitive! I love the new kite I added to my collection, I will definitely be shopping with kittyhawk.com in the future
