If you find yourself waiting for the wind to fly your stunt kite, consider an Ultralight. These low wind and no wind kites are flown on short lines, indoors or out. Powered by pumping on the lines, they need amazingly little wind to fly and have the most sophisticated designs in terms of shape, materials and performance. The first time you try one, you’ll be surprised at how responsive they are in so little wind. Just walking backward with an indoor kite in a still room creates enough non turbulent airflow to allow the kite to glide over and fly around you. The boundaries of the wind window disappear and a new world of possibilities opens up: from 360° sweeps and up-and-overs to throws and catches. No longer dependent on a single wind direction, indoor flying is a graceful, fluid dance. Made as lightweight as possible with carbon spars and most often polyester sails, they can be a bit fragile for inexperienced fliers to learn on, although the evolution of Ultralight Kites has made them more durable and less expensive than ever.
