The Kites Aren't What They Used To Be

When I went with my friends to "fly a kite" yesterday, I had no idea it would be a monster with 3m (10 ft) span (the SMALLEST of these).

I guess these are primarily for riding on skateboards or surfboards but they are nicely controllable and great fun even on foot. You can appreciate the drag force in this video. Even with yesterday's erratic wind gusts.

If anyone's interested, the same guys who produce the kites (Pegas) have just opened an internet shop at kite-sport.cz. Czech only, sorry.
