Where to Fly your Kite

Modern kites are intended to be flown all year round. Smooth, steady winds are always the best, and onshore sea breezes are perfect - that's why you often see kites at the beach. Large open areas such as grassy parks and open fields also make great kite flying sites, but always check that the area you choose to fly in is clear of obstacles like buildings, trees, or hills - they can block the wind and create a wind shadow that will adversely affect the performance of your kite.


  • fly your kite near power lines, in storms, near airports, roads or railways
  • fly near trees, houses or too close to other people or animals
  • fly a stunt kite over a person or animal - stunt kites can move very quickly and can cause injury
  • fly your kite in conditions that are too extreme or winds that are too strong for your skill level or your equipment - always learn to fly with a smaller kite in lighter winds before attempting to fly a larger kite or more powerful kite in stronger winds
  • attach yourself permanently to your kite
  • attempt to catch or hold a kite by the lines or bridle


  • keep your lines away from people and animals as flying lines and bridles under tension can cut like a knife
  • check your kite, lines and handles for wear and tear before flying - do not fly with worn or damaged equipment, repair or replace accordingly
  • be considerate to those people around you
  • fly your kite on all the flying line supplied, unwind all the line as flying on shorter lines reduces response time and makes the kite move too fast
