Successful kite flights

by Cardin Maurizio
(Venice, Italy)

Thank you so much for having taken me back to my childhood.

I am 63.I have made the 2-skewer delta and diamond kites for my 3 years old grandchild.

Today I went to the beach,the breeze was perfect. The 2 kites left the ground and flew perfectly. WHAT A GREAT JOY YOU GAVE TO ME. I hope to transfer my enthusiasm to my grandchild.

Now let's try other models. Is the big MBK book bundle also available as a useful portable book?

The joy of kiting
by: Tony Sangster

The look of joy on a child's face as she or he watches a kite fly, particularly when holding the kite line is a wonder.

I have seen three generations of a family on a kitefield all enjoying the kites they are flying.
Kites do not need to be made of fancy materials or expensive to be enjoyed.

Touching the sky, being connected to it by a kite-line, communing with nature and seeing those children's faces is a special event!

Kite on!

Printing

Glad to hear of your skewer-kite success! None of the e-book material is currently available pre-printed, but this could change in future.

As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...

"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)

It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamonddelta or sled step-by-step. They fly hundreds of feet up for hours on end. Woohoo!

Could you do me just a small favor though? If you're over 16, please sign up for Tethered Flying - my free twice-per-month publication. Here's just a sampling of the total content...
