The wind is blowing outside and the trees are bending and swaying to the gusts as they beckon you to come out and while it may be fun to watch Ruby flies a kite on the Max and Ruby – Ruby’s Snow Queen – DVD, it is more enjoyable to get outside and fly a Superman Diamond Kite.
Yes, it is that season again, when kite flying becomes a fun and exciting way to pass an hour or two or even a full day. Unfortunately, not everyone feels that way and they spend the day battling the kite and trying to get it up in the sky without any success. While kite flying seems easy, it can actually be very difficult to do and most people opt to leave their Finding Nemo Diamond Kite in the package instead of up in the sky.
Thankfully, there are a few tips to getting your Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Diamond Kite off the ground and you can find everything you need to know below.
Location, Location, Location:
As you know, everyone at Kimmy’s Shop is dedicated to safety and that is the first tip that we offer all of our readers is to be safe. The best way to remain safe while you are flying a kite is all in the location.
Most people feel that all you need is a wide open field for kite flying but there is more to the location than just that. While a park can be the ideal, it may have a few safety issues that should be considered.
First and foremost is overhead wires. These are very dangerous and you should always make sure that there are none in the park that you are flying in and that any you see are a good football field away, or farther. The last thing you will want is your kite going down onto a power line.
Next, look around at what is near your location. Is there a road near by? Are you flying your kite in amongst buildings or near a busy pathway? If so, look for a different place to fly your Disney Princess Diamond Kite since you don’t want to chase a kite out into a street and you don’t want it to hit anyone walking by.
Once you have a safe location, start looking at the terrain. If there are a lot of trees, it is not the ideal location since you will run the risk of losing the kite in a tree. In addition, a park that is really hilly is not the best since the hills can work as a natural wind break, something that is horrible for kite flying.
Which Way does the Wind Blow:
The first time I flew a kite it was a very simple kite, much like the Winnie the Pooh Diamond Kite, and I didn’t think that there would be anything to flying it. All I really needed to do was set up the kite, wait for a windy day and head off to the park.
Boy, was I wrong. Kite flying takes a bit more planning than that and while wind is needed, it is important to really watch the wind before deciding to go out.
First, always make sure that the wind is blowing away from any potentially serious hazards. If the wind is blowing towards a wide open field instead of a road, then it is the perfect day for kite flying. If it isn’t, then it might be a good time to leave off kite flying for a day or two.
Next, check how hard the wind is blowing. Some kites can do very well in a strong wind but others will only be tossed to the ground. Save some of the frustration and read your kite’s directions first to find out the wind recommendation. If it doesn’t have a recommendation, take it out and give it a test run.
Watch the Disney Mickey Mouse Diamond Kite closely. If it begins looping and diving and you are unable to control it, then the wind is too strong for that particular kite and it is time to pull it in and try flying on another day.
Take Off and Touch Down:
When it comes to take off, very few people are good at it and they tend to have a running approach to it. While this does seem to work, it is not the safest way to get a kite to take off and it is much better to launch a kite in a stationary position.
First, always try to fly a kite with a partner. This will save you a lot of problems and will make take off much easier. Give them the Winnie the Pooh Diamond Kite to hold, while you hold the line. Have them walk, not run, downwind until they are about 80 feet from you. From there, you gently pull the kite towards you, but make sure your partner releases it before you begin pulling.
To do this on your own. Simply hold the kite out in front of you and wait until the kite is caught by the wind. Once it does, let the line out gently and watch it climb.
Once it is up there, you have seen it fly for a long period of time, which coincidentally, you should keep the line tight while it is in the air to prevent it from falling, and it is time to guide it back down.
Generally, the easiest way to bring the kite back down to earth is to walk backwards slowly and reel in the line. Be sure to do this very carefully and don’t rush. If you do, the Disney Cars Diamond Kite may crash into the ground and break.
And that is all it takes to fly a kite. Before I end, however, I would like to make one last safety recommendation; never fly a kite when it is stormy outside.
