5 Reasons Why we Think Kites are Freakin' Awesome
We think kites are freakin' awesome!  They are fun to fly, great exercise and a chance to get out in the outdoors and away from our screens!  Here is a list of why we think Kite Flying is a great hobby and a wonderful family activity.

1) Fresh air is underrated!  How good it is to get outside enjoy the blue sky, the sun and the great outdoors.  We fly kites all year round - including winter! 




 1b)  Kites are a great social distance activity.  Flying kites, you are out doors and at least 10ft apart from the next person flying a kite (unless you are team flying)

2) Physically active - Getting out and moving does a body good! There is a kite for just about every kind of physical ability from the gentle to the full on extreme - glide kites,  single line kites to carving up the sky with a trick kite or getting your adrenaline fix with foil kites.

3) Reduces Stress -  Getting away from the day to day grind is a first great step for stress reduction.  Add the gentle flight of kites on the breeze or flying your stress through your stunt kite through the sky, flying kites have demonstrated to be an effective way of reducing stress.

5) Great way to spend time as a family - Let's face it, there are a lot of things competing for your time, and we want to make time for quality activities to do as a family.   With quality kites, a good wind and a place to fly, you and your family can make some great memories!  One thing my wife and I enjoy doing together is flying our four line Revolution kites together, side by side.  We play follow the leader, hover side by side and fly forms together.  Lots of fun and good for a few laughs if you don't take it too seriously!
