I mainly fly dualies.. quads on occasion.. my 12 year old son got interested last year.. got him a prism quantum. He has gotten pretty decent at flying.. my wife and daughter come and usually watch.. i picked up a couple slk's during the winter.. premiers version of the ghost delta and a 5ft rok.. they seem to enjoy flying them much more than the multi line stuff...

i would like to grab a few more kites to have a little more variety.. figured i'd ask here first. you know.. budgets and all..
i had a sled and a couple spikey balls a long time ago.. it was a nice combo..
open to pretty much anything.. just wanting stuff that has a nice presence in the sky... not really looking to spend over $100 on a single piece at the moment... just a few things for them to play with..

please pm or text 704 224 1947 if you have anything interesting...

Thanks,
Andy

Which are you leaning towards? Line Laundry or single lines?

In the whirled (sic) of single line kites what floats your boat? Flat kites? Bowed? deltas? cellular kites?
dragons?
So many options....
Personally I like longer tailed kites....more forgiving to fly as well for the most part if the wind changes...
You could grab a smaller Robert Brasington Batty Boy:

that would be fun, and packs up nice and small

Or a scubadoo designed by kisa is a super fun shape with a water motif

I pop a scubadoo up on the top of a banner pole too for some tethered movement

I have one (that isn't for sale) and love the way it flies. Like the skeleton kites, fly it at the lower end of its wind range, the material is not hemmed and will shred itself in high winds. I have a short video of it flying I can send you if you'd like.
