 Should you find yourself in need of a kite for kite flying this weekend, I highly recommend a foil kite over traditional framed kites. A foil kite has a stitched honey comb design which inflates expanding the canvass to catch wind. They require no cross bars or frame. They are lighter, pack much smaller, require less wind to fly and can be stored in a backpack to be near when the kiting urge takes over. Premier is a good brand. Find a field, some wind, a small child, or child-like mood and enjoy the day.

Jeff Watson writes: 

I fly a lot of kites and use this purveyor Into the Wind. They have my good seal of housekeeping. 

Craig Mee adds:

The Tao of Kiteflying: the dynamics of the tethered flight by Harm van Veenmuch is quite a good little book with a great foreword: "dedicated to all those who have not yet unlearned their sense of wonder about reality in general and the phenomena of kites in particular". 

Easy enjoyment and also market lessons for all.

    Kite flying by the ocean is without a doubt one of the most pleasant and therapeutic activities I have experienced. I used to do it daily when I lived a few miles from the beach. I wonder though if foil kites are capable of the speeds that can make other controlled kites so enjoyable to master.
