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!

    Went out for a short fly today, after taking the 2-Skewer Sode off the dusty book-case top. The kite had been gathering dust there for at least a couple of years... The vertical spar of bamboo BBQ ske…
