This Kite Was Flown In Front Of A Kid At A Beach. His Reaction Had Me In Stitches
I've watched this video so many times, and I still can't figure out how this kite works. This specific kind of kite is called a stunt kite and actually has a whole sport devoted to its use. These multi-line kites, which are usually roughly triangular in shape, can be flown artistically in time with music. These choreographed performances can be carried out by individuals, pairs or even in teams of up to eight pilots. A panel of judges base their scores on the execution of a variety of compulsory moves. National and international competitions, including a world championship, are conducted by Sport Team and Competitive Kiting (STACK). The United States and Japan also have their own organizations, as well.
