When it comes to picking 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 many brands there were to pick from.
The main challenge we came across when picking a power kite was that from all the information available on the internet, the kites on videos and in images all look really similar. So while this research narrowed down the popular brands from many to just 4, 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 comparable in size. When the kites were physically set out in front of us or we were actually flying them, we saw considerable differences – particularly in the quality of the construction and the actual performance of the kite in flight.
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 so many positive testimonials on forums and internet sites from all corners of the world about the quality and technical performance of their kites.
We saw on Flexifoil’s internet site 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 purchased the Big Buzz kite which came complete with 18m flying lines and handles. What a genius product – delivered within a couple of days, magnificently 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 brief, if you are searching for an extremely 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 truly easy to set up and arrives ready to fly. It includes easy-to-follow instructions and has been called as ‘the perfect introductory kite to power kiting for those aged 10+’.
The kite has impressive performance, even in the lightest of winds, and packs up small so is easily kept at home or in the car or in your travel suitcase. Comes with TOTALLY FREE ‘USA’ SHIPPING and a 90-Day Money Back Guarantee too!
