78″ Rokkaku kite


This kite from Premier Kites comes in several designs, but not all are available all the time.  My favourite is the Flames design, but there is something to suit most tastes.  The construction is ripstop nylon with carbon spars, and mine has survived a hard life, including a dunking in the sea for 30 minutes, without complaint. Rokkaku are good light-wind kites with excellent lifting ability, and this is no exception.  Many people use these for KAP. Recommended wind speed is 4 to 18mph, and at the higher end you will have to hang on tightly!  Good value at a list price (2011) of $109.95.  I have bought from Into the Wind and Picture Pretty Kites whose prices are a little lower.
