The Waves kite is a beautifully printed diamond shape that stands out magnificently in the sky. It’s high quality design and very high quality screen printed sail means it really shows in the sky. Your kids will love this one. Your Waves kite will fly in a pretty wide wind range from fairly light to fresh winds…… this means that there are ‘more days when you can play with it.’
The Waves kite is very stable in the sky. Kids love to watch it as it wiggles and dances from side to side but it’s also very steady position in the wind. This is exactly what you want a childrens kite to do.
The sail is made of rip stop sailcloth and the frame is very 4mm fiberglass. As a result of these really strong materials, you can expect your kite to be around for a long, long time.
Diamonds are Single String kites suited to kids of all ages that fly best in medium winds. All children, even young kids, will find our Diamonds really, really easy to fly. Just hold ’em to the wind and up they will go.
A very traditional design, diamond kites have been around for thousands of years. We’ve updated and modernised them a fair bit with great materials like ripstop nylon sailcloth and strong fibreglass frames but the joy and pleasure for kids flying them is still the same!
Diamond kites need slightly more wind than, say, delta designs but their shape, and the long tails we put on them, make them really stable in the sky as the wind picks up. Is one shape better then the other? No, not really…they are just ‘different’. Deltas are usually better in light to medium winds while Diamonds are better in medium to fresh winds.
All of our diamond kites are super simple to put together. Just slip 2 sticks (we call them rods or spars) across the back and you’re ready to fly.
