Share the joy— there’s something in kiting for everyone

 

When you become involved in kites you become part of a warm, creative, vibrant community with enthusiastic friends everywhere! Some of our members fly just for fun, some like to compete, some fly with others, some fly for exercise, and some just like to watch.

Whatever your kite pleasure or activity is we provide a common theme of education and safety that is shared by the member clubs across the  country. Whether you fly on one, two, four (or more) lines or buy or make your own kites, there is something in kiting for everyone!

We come from all walks of life and all ages, so kites are our common language. We always encourage new members…so whether you’re thinking about purchasing your first kite, making a kite with your kids, or you’re seasoned kiter looking for a new technique or challenge, come fly with us!
