Turtle kite line laundry


This cute character is five feet across, was designed by Meik Schlenger and comes from Gomberg Kites.  It is made to order in colours of your choice, and comes complete with a stabilising drogue and a bag.  It needs a medium-sized kite to lift it, say an 11ft delta or something similar, and inflates very easily in a moderate breeze.  There is a 10ft version if you prefer something bigger, but this one makes a big impact on the beach or wherever you are flying.  If you like to add line laundry to your display, this is a good item to have.  I found it moved around a little too much in a lively breeze, so I tied the drogue to an anchor placed further up the beach, which worked well. It is available direct from Gomberg Kites for $140.
