2010 Kymera in Seaside (sport | stunt kite prototype)

Prototype flights at the 2010 AKA Grand Nationals in Seaside, OR... A new kite design from John Barresi in conjunction with ITW, the Kymera was conceived as a blend of old-school and new-school to produce both trick and precision/loading ability in a wide wind range.

Built to drive and track with sharp, stable cornering when loaded up, the Kymera is a great kite for sharp banking turns and arcs with small powerful inputs, backed up by its smooth style throughout a wide range of tricks.

Coming in 2011!

THP Platinum Pro Comp Sport KITE Takes Flight In Honolulu

This is a viewer's request, and I was bored on a sunny Hawaiian winter.
This is my Edge type stunt kite, sport-kite, or whatever they call these kites today.

Video taken at THREE of the fields I normally fly at: Old Stadium Park on King Street in Moiiliili, Washington Middle School (my old stomping ground) (formally Washington Intermediate School) in McCully, and Kakaako Waterfront Park. Dwaine Dog Chapman - The Bounty Hunter calls Kakaako (Kak kak AH' ko) kah ko WAH ko.....

I fly OLD-school style. Not free style. I love my kites to make a lot of noise, and fly fast.
Today's winds was light. Slow-motion stuff. 2 - 7 MPH. Gust to 9 MPH. 10+ MPH, this kite would roar to LIFE! I would be dragged across the field if the winds went above 17 MPH! =D

Genesis stunt kite Standard TRICKS GALLORE

This is not my video. I uploaded this because at the time, there were very few videos of stunt kites on youtube. Credit goes to the pilot: Erich Vogl and camera: Brigitte Gstottner

Genesis Stunt kite made by Level one kites. This is a trick kite that is made to do alot of insane moves that I can't even do on my genesis.

If you want more information about stunt kites, the first place you should go to is: and join the forums there. the gwtw forums is the one of the largest kite forums on the west coast. another website is

Specs:

Wingspan 227 cm
Height 105 cm
Upper Leading Edge Skyshark P200 x 82.5cm
Lower Leading Edge Skyshark P200 x 71cm
Lower Spreaders Skyshark 5PT x 77.5cm
Upper Spreader Cfk 6mm x 53cm
Spine Cfk 6mm x 95cm
Inner Standoff x 3mm x 29cm
Outer Standoff x 3mm x 27cm
Keel Weight 2 x 6grams
Weight 309 grams
Wind range 7-38 km/h

Construction:

The center T is one of the new aluminum type that Level One has been using with some of their kites. Hooray they decided not to use the TWS system on the Genesis! There is weight though but it is a total of 12 grams fixed at the nose. The Genesis has a deep sail the standoffs are much longer than say the JTM they almost remind me in length to the New Age. Also another thing strikes me about the Genesis is that it seems to have a fairly long tail compared to many of their other kites. The bridle is a simple 3-point with quick adjustment knots at the upper spreader connectors and also at the center T if you want to shorten up your turning inputs. One of the nice things about the bridle is that it is not too long it does not get caught on the tail at all. There is a leech line in the TE to subdue any noise. The spreader connectors are Avia's. The Leading Edges have some curve to them. The standoff to sail connection area has some mylar re-enforcement to it.

Dual Line Tutorial - Assembly and Disassembly (stunt kite)

Another in an ongoing series of Kitelife Magazine tutorials for using dual line sport / stunt kites, this one detailing an efficient and reliable assembly and disassembly method.

While putting your kite together and taking it apart may not be relevant to your flying, it DOES effect not only the longevity of the kite and its materials, but a proven process can greatly streamline and simplify your before and after on the field.

You can look forward to a growing collection of similar tutorials covering equipment, flight techniques and other pro secrets gathered from over 20 years in the kiting community... A number of them will be available here on YouTube, while the majority of these tutorials will be located in the Kitelife Subscribers section, be sure to subscribe today if you like what we're doing here!

How to Trick, Freestyle Stunt Kiting

This is a video which I made for a friend, showing some of the basic tricks and exercises from different angels and on short lines.
Kite: HQ-Maestro II, upgraded & modified
Wind: 2-15km/h (mostly 4-5km/h)
Music: Miniman - Opus in dub minor (2006)

Quad-Line Stunt Kite - NTK Volksquad

The Volksquad (the people's kite as translated by manufacturer New Tech Kites) is a 4-line framed stunt kite. With four lines and controlled by a pair of quad handles, the kite can go in any direction - forward, backward, and side to side - while also facing any other direction. With the right skills, this kite can go very fast, stop on a dime, and be held almost perfectly still.

Unlike power kites, these framed quad-line kites generally cannot be used for kite landboarding due to their relatively low pull.

Filmed in summer 2012 in Galveston beach and Houston, TX.
