ITW Malay kite


The Malay is a colourful kite from Into the Wind which is a great alternative to the normal diamond kite.  It is quite big at 4’ 7” by 4’ 11”, and flies extremely well.  It doesn’t need a tail, but in unsteady winds will do better with one.   There are two designs, known as Sunrise and Sunset, and both are shown in the video, flying on one line.  The Malay is well made from ripstop nylon with fibreglass spars, and comes in a very strong case which will last at least as long as the kite.  The price (2012) is $59 direct from ITW.
