Single line kites ...

Single line kites have been flown more or less in every culture on earth and now for thousands of years !!!

Flown for fun, for food gathering (fishing with kites) and for war (as observer platforms and for signalisation).

The variety of single line kites is mind boggling!
There are kites made out of leaves and sticks, kites out of paper and wood strips or silk and bamboo, kites out of glasfiber tubes and nylon cloth or carbonfiber and polyester cloth.
Or single line kites without any frame ... they are made only out of cloth and a few strands of strings. They work similar to a modern paraglider ...

Well .. you'll find a small selection on the following pages ... but there will come more, especially because I am into building my own kites!
