KITE OF THE MONTH
dive and then quickly reach for the zenith, you can make it go to the right and left all with a single flying line.
The traditional Indian fighter kite is a beautiful work of art. Its light weight bamboo frame carries a delicate tissue paper cover yet it can withstand a surprising amount of rough handling when manuvering through the sky.
Vic’s fighter kite is the first collapsible fighter kite made. It has a spruce wood spine and metal cross spars that are interchangeable for a variety of flying conditions. The cover is make of Mylar and is virtually indestructable, making it ideal for beginners yet it is so responsive that most pros use Vic’s fighters in competition. By the way Vic Herrera, the designer of the kite, won the individual kite fighting class on Father’s Day at Golden Gate Park.
If you have never experienced a fighter kite you really owe it to yourself to try this one. it’s like being able to fly!!!!
