What is freestyle kite flying?
Freestyle is denoting a contest or version of a sport in which there are few restrictions on the moves or techniques that competitors employ. It's a bit like some people use skate or snow boards. Tricks tend to be done close to the ground as part of a landing or take-off manoeuvre. Sometimes they are referred to as 'slack-line tricks'. By throwing both hands forward, the kite can be stalled so it hovers and floats down on its face. Or it can even be flipped over onto its back, where it can hover while there is no tension in the flying lines.
A tug on one line will then send it spinning around on the spot. A skilled pilot can do a lot of fancy freestyle moves. Freestyle flying connects individual tricks together into a routine. Watch some freestyle trick flying on our products pages.
Which Kite lines?
There is a large choice of kite lines. Different ways of flying a kite will place different requirements on a kite line. Some of our sport kite lines are manufactured from Coramid, which is a high quality brand fibre among others such as Dyneema or Spectra. Good kite lines are pre-stretched and have a tight braid to allow for control even when lines are crossed over multiple times.
