Rokkaku kite - Calling all artists …. have you ever considered displaying YOUR unique work of art in the air?
The stability and convenience of this modern Rokkaku make it great for fun flying, lifting, or fighting. Adjustable bow lines allow tuning for different winds.
The hexagonal Rokkaku kite was originally developed for traditional kite fighting in Japan. Large paper and bamboo kites flown by teams would tangle, tip, or crash together and the last kite in the sky was the winner.
Our kite measures 5.5 feet tall and 4.5 feet wide. It is constructed of durable ripstop with a fiberglass frame. We use the four-bridle-point configuration for ease of tuning. The O-Ring spar system makes assembly quick and easy. The velcro tensioner ensures no spars are vulnerable during a competition.
"Roks" fly well in all winds and are excellent for intermediate or advanced fliers. They will also hold tube tails or line art.

Calling all artists …. have you ever considered displaying YOUR unique work of art in the air?
Made of ripstop sailcloth and fibreglass frames, these white hexagonal kites are a wonderful platform for your art, whether you use a sewing machine (appliqué) or acrylic paint! Sharpie permanent markers work well too, so if you are interested in getting everyone at your large gathering to autograph a kite for a memento of a special event, these kites can hold a LOT of signatures and special messages. (We often take white kites to weddings, along with a box of sharpies. Just make sure you protect the table!)
For those who wish to learn more about painting with acrylic on ripstop nylon, there is an excellent article in the Spring 2007 issue of Kiting, the quarterly magazine published by the American Kitefliers Association.
