Nylon Kites

Q:

Where can nylon kites be bought and what are the price points?

A:

The simple answer is 'everywhere', since rip-stop nylon is the most common modern sail material. If you don't mind shopping online, just browsing through this website will throw up plenty of nylon kites you can buy from Amazon, eBay and others.

You have indicated you are from Palm Coast, Florida in the USA. This shop might be the closest:

Freak Dog Kites
402-2 Seabreeze Boulevard, Daytona Beach

Apart from that one, there are quite a few kite shops in Florida that appear in this online listing.

Bear in mind that some of these specialize in extreme sports such as kite-surfing, rather than nylon kites for kids.

Regarding price points, the majority of small kites for children are mass-produced and priced below $10. Bigger single-line kites that are of better quality and have better flying characteristics range from $10 up to around $50. Fairly large hand crafted and hand decorated kites for adults are often found in the $50 - $200 range. Beyond that, size is a factor, with large inflatable kites costing from the hundreds right up to the thousands of dollars!

Hope this helps!
