What Others Have Said

"...Your website is exceptional and is one of the main reasons I decided to get the kite. The trainer kite reviews and explanations were a great resource to help me pick one out. I can't wait to get it out and play around with it."

Scott, Florida

"Thank you, thank you! I bought the kite without doing very much research and I was sooo worried that I had the wrong kite when my eight year old couldn’t handle it [Rush Pro 300]. You really made his day (and mine too) when you let me exchange it [for the Rush Pro 250]. Thank you!"
