G-Kites - Tails Tubes, and Line Art

Kite flying is fun! And you can add even more fun by 'improving' your kite with a longer tail, extra streamers, a rotating decoration, or by attaching designs to the line we call line art or line laundry.

Some kites lift tails better than others. But all of our kites are designed with extra loops and attachment points. Deltas soar with less lift and like flat tails which have little drag. Larger Sleds and Parafoils will carry a larger "payload".

And don't forget you can have plenty of fun with no wind when you attach a tail to our long fiberglass poles.

    We've seen all kinds of tricks used to attach laundry to a flying line. Most involve knots which cause abrasion and weaken line strength. Our approach is a lot more simple.

    We wrap small carabiners into the main flying line. Normally, three twists work just fine. When the line is slack, you can slide the"biner"anywhere you want. But when the kite goes up and tension builds on the line, the"biner"is locked in place.

    It's quick, easy, and doesn't reduce line strength.
