Basically it’s one of those odd presents I never quite understood but maybe kite flying is easy and I was just with shit kite flyers. I live near a good kite hill. Are they actually amazing fun?

Same as you, Theo. Tried once or twice as a kid, but to no avail.


#3

Remember trying it once as a <10 year old and it not being particularly successful.

I’ve never been given one but

when the kids were very small we bought them a very basic kite (think it was winnie the pooh or something)

Got that thing flying great on windy welsh beaches

Later my daughter won a fancy “stunt kite” thing (the kind with 2x bits of string to hold) - much trickier to fly for an extended period of time, but got some pretty decent swooping action going on
