When it comes to choosing your 1st power kite, where do you start? I hope this gives you an insight into how my 11 year old daughter and I selected ours from the numerous brand names there were to choose from.
The main challenge we came across when choosing a power kite was that from all the information available on the internet, the kites on videos and in photos all look extremely similar. So while this research narrowed down the popular brands from many to just four, it was time to see the kites in the flesh.
We headed to Southsea where we had previously been inspired by the hundreds of kites of all shapes, sizes and colours being flown. No sooner had we arrived in the park, we got chatting to these recreational kiting folk who were so friendly. We were able to try the four various brands of kites we'd read about. They were all similar in size. When the kites were physically set out in front of us or we were actually flying them, we observed substantial differences - namely in the quality of the construction and the actual performance of the kite in the air.
This is when we first tried the Flexifoil Big Buzz kite which was one of our selections we'd narrowed down. We loved it! Flexifoil had a lot of favorable testimonials on forums and web sites from all corners of the world about the quality and technical performance of their kites.
We saw on Flexifoil's website that they are partnered with the BBC, Virgin and Jaguar Cars. We also saw that Flexifoil had a number of World Records to their name. We ordered the Big Buzz kite which came complete with eighteen metre flying lines and handles. What a genius product - delivered within a couple of days, superbly presented, fine quality detail like we'd seen at the park a couple of days before and the kite performs brilliantly as we'd remembered. Best and most fun $99 we have ever spent!
In short, if you are searching for a really safe, strong and fun '2-line' power kite then the Flexifoil Big Buzz is for you. My daughter is 11 years old and she's mastered flying it. It's really simple to set up and arrives all set to fly. It includes easy-to-follow instructions and has been dubbed as 'the best introductory kite to power kiting for those aged 10+'.
The kite has outstanding performance, even in the lightest of winds, and packs up small so is easily stored in your home or in the car or in your suitcase. Comes with FREE 'U.S.' SHIPPING and a 90-Day Money Back Guarantee too!
