What is the easiest type of kite to fly?
Parafoil kites are among the easiest to fly and since they are soft kites (“inflated” by the wind), there is no assembly required and no pieces to lose. Most parafoil kites come with line and a tail for stability.
How do I choose a kite?
The basic rule to follow when choosing a kite size — the stronger the wind you expect, the smaller your kite should be. The wind range at which you can safely ride is from 3–5 to 15–20 m/s, and comfortable for most riders — from about 6 to 12 m/s.

What makes a stunt kite spin 360 degrees?

What’s the difference between a stunt kite and a trick kite?

How can a kite be flipped on its back?
By throwing both hands forward, the kite can be ‘stalled’ so it hovers and floats down on its face. Or it can even be flipped over onto its back, where it can hover while there is no tension in the lines. A tug on one line will then send it spinning around on the spot.
