Kite Flying for Social Distancing

Even though travel restrictions have been lifted, we are still taking safety concerns seriously. So we are putting together a collection of our favorite activities that you can do while social distancing. We hope you’ll take these ideas as inspiration. It’s our mission to create fun and memorable activities for you and your family. Even when we have to stay six-feet apart, we are determined to teach the world to fly! So of course, we had to start with kite flying!

Flying kites is a great activity to do by yourself or with your close friends and family. And you can do it anywhere with a little wind. You can find kites of every shape, style, color, and experience level in our stores and online.

Looking for help on getting your kite in the air? We have a page full of kite flying tips. Still having trouble? Visit our trouble-shooting page to fly your kite effectively.

Share the fun!

When you take to the sky, make sure you take some pictures or video of your kite in action. Tag us @kittyhawkkites on social media to share your joy for flying and for a chance to be featured!

Nic O’Neill Explains How Kites Let Us Soar

There is something whimsical, and magical about flying kites. Whether you are young or old, flying a little single line kite, or a big power kite, there’s a wonderful experience waiting. Nic O’Neill, former president of the American Kitefliers Association, hit the nail on the head on how kiting can make us feel and how easy it is to share that joy with the world. So we wanted to share this video one more time to remind everyone to get outside and fly a kite!

We are very passionate here at Kitty Hawk Kites in everything we do. From our experiences and memories shared in our outdoor recreation adventures, like hang gliding, parasailing, and kayak tours, to our every day in-store retail adventures with toys, games, Life is Good, and so much more. But our passion goes deep when it comes to the experiences we have with flying kites. And the wonderful experiences we get to hear from our customers and friends in the kiting world.
