WATCH OUT: A good trick kite is a kite whereby the interaction between pilot and kite is very close and strict. This also means that the kite has to be under control during the interaction. Spars and other parts that deform too much under stress from line-pulling or wind pressure prevent or obstruct the correct execution of tricks. To avoid disappointments, it is suggested that you stick with the spars as used and prescribed in this website. All parts used here are tested and approved by skilled pilots. These parts may be a little bit more expensive, they are well worth their use!
