Tips for a Successful Kite Flying Day

Once you’ve picked out your kite, it’s time to hit the nearest beach or park and have fun! Flying a kite isn’t that complicated, but keep in mind some things that can help you soar high above.

  1. Make sure the weather conditions are right: There’s such a thing as the right amount of wind for kite flying. Ideally, you want wind speeds between 8 and 15 miles per hour. 
  2. Choose the right location: The right place is just as important as the weather. You want a clear and wide-open spot that is without obstructions like trees, buildings, and hills. 
  3. Use the proper kite flying techniques: The type of kite you are flying impacts the procedures you use. Single-line kites require you to stand with your back to the wind, while multi-line kites mean you should lay out your lines before launch.
