looking for old stunt kites in your garage?!

Postby kite fan » Tue Nov 22, 2022 11:59 am

Hi guys, I always flew all sorts of kites since I was a kid. Started with single line kites then 2 and 4 lines stunt kites before discovering power kites. Started buggying and kitesurfing in 1996 and snowkiting later on. Now that I have kids I have a lot less time to go kitesurfing as I live inlands in France... I went back in my past as I now mostly fly single line kites that I build with my wife but I also got back a lot into 2 line stunt kites. I decided to start a collection of stunt kites that I was dreaming of when I was a kid but could not offer. Now, I can offer myself those kites but they are not available anymore :D I look every day on second hand websites but good kites for sale do not appear that often.
This is why I decided to post on this forum. Maybe some of you started, as me, with dual line stunt kites that are now stored in a garage or cupboard. If you no longer plan to use them, I would be happy to buy some to complete my collection. My goal is to find the well known brands from years 1990-2000 such as Prism, Blackbird, Benson, Flexifoil (Matrix), Big Easy Kites...
Not really interested in NSR though as I already have some.
Can study every proposal on some still flyable kites :wink:
Thanks.

I still have my original Team Hawaiian kite. Got it after reading an article in Sports Illustrated about it describing it as boxing with the wind. 6 Foot wing span, carbon fiber arrow shafts, trailing edge vibrates so it sounds like it has a motor, and pulls like a truck.

6’ would be a 3/4 Hawaiian, I believe. My 3/4 Spinoff certainly is.

I think I’m too emotionally attached to my old kites to sell any, but I’ll take a look.

Just sold one as well as a vented NSR Radical. I'm not a big fan of the hawaian style kites. The vented NSR was in really good conditions but needs really strong winds to shine up and I rarely have those winds where i live. I really prefer the standard or UL kites precise and freestyle. Got a MEFM this summer and this kite is so cool for a chill out session! :D
