1.  You Like to Relax, Your Kids Do Not You may be excited to lay on your beach chair and catch up on some reading, but your kids have different ideas.  With a kite in hand, you know they will be in one place (quality kites do not require running) and have plenty of entertainment.

4.  Kites are Fun – From single-line kites with fascinating designs and 300’ of string to stunt kites that allow for nifty maneuvers and tricks. Kite flying is an activity that allows for different skills to be developed over time leading to more variety and entertainment.


5.  It’s Not Only For Kids – Ready to get out of the beach chair yourself? Grab your own kite and compete with your kids for altitude or most stable flight. Or, compete to see who can perform the best tricks on your stunt kite.  For those looking for more action, get a power kite and be pulled along the sand.

6.  Beaches are a Great Place for Wind – Although there are several kites that do not require wind, flying is always a little more enjoyable with a solid breeze at your back.

7.  Kites are a Very Affordable Family Activity – High-quality kites can be very inexpensive.
