What is freestyle kite flying? - 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.
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 kite lines are manufactured from Coramid, which is a high quality brand fibre among others such as Dyneema or Spectra. Line strength is measured in daN [1 deca Newton = 10N. One Newton is the gravitational force of a bar of chocolate weighing 100g.]
