Flying a kite
Kiting has come over from China, but has been a widely practiced activity in the Netherlands since the Middle Ages. The most famous form of kite flying is the diamond-shaped kite with tail, which people let on, but it is also a sport. You can practice kite flying in different ways, whereby different kites can be used. You have people who control kites with one line, who do not control the kite and where you especially have to enjoy the kite. And you have kites who fly kites with more lines and perform stunts with their kite. It is also possible to practice sports with kites, such as kite surfing. An athlete stands on a small surfboard and is pulled forward by the kite, or kite. Power kiting is also possible with a large kite. This allows a buggy, mountain board or person to be pulled forward.
Releasing the kite
If you want the kite to take off, you must go to a place where there are no obstacles nearby, such as buildings, that cause turbulence in air flows. The beach or an open field are good options. If the wind blows strongly, you can let the kite go. Make sure that the kite is always facing the wind. Hold the kite as high as possible while standing with your back to the wind. If you feel that the wind is blowing against the kite, you should let go of the kite. When there is enough wind, the kite goes up. In that case, you can let the rope celebrate. If this causes the kite to descend, pull the rope tighter again, so that the kite goes up again. Tightening the rope and letting it go repeat several times until the kite rises to high and more even winds.
Types of kites
You have different types of kites, including the 1 liner, which is not controllable and is attached to 1 line. They mainly serve to watch while you are holding the kite. You also have the delta, a stick kite that is attached to two kite lines. By pulling on a leash you can make the kite steer to the right or left, steer up or down, do somersaults or make turns. You also have stick pilots, which you can control with 1, 2 or 4 lines. They are widely used for trick kiting, because you can kite the many beautiful figures with this stick kite. You also have a mattress kite, without poles and with 2, 3 or 4 lines. The 2-line mattress kite is mainly intended for fun. The four-line mattress kites have many braking lines, which gives you a lot of control. Ideal for buggies and mountain boarding. Finally, you also have a hybrid kite, which resembles a mattress kite. The difference is that this kite has no air chambers and flexible sticks that keep the kite in shape.
