I went to the beach the other day and I flew this fantastic stunt kite. It was unlike any other kite I’ve ever flown. It didn’t just sit in the air with one string to control it. It did loops, it did dives, it did all this stuff on two strings. You could even make it hover above the ground for long periods of time and then shoot it back up into the sky almost instantly. It was so fun to fly. I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun with a kite. I’m seriously going to buy myself a stunt kite.
Check out the videos below for a glimpse of what a stunt kite can do. But I don’t think the videos do it full justice. Watch anyway though.
The kite I flew belonged to my friend Justin, and I believe it was a Prism kite (specifically the Nexus kite in the Recreational Line). The kite goes for roughly $59, but wow, those will be a good and fun $60!!!
