Here at Kite-line, we heavily recommend learning to fly and control a trainer kite designed by Slingshot, Sensei, Ocean Rodeo, HQ, Flysurfer, Ozone or Peter Lynn. Without proper control and technique taught by a qualified instructor to go over basics, weather conditions, setups and maneuvers, it would be easy to rip a brand new kite or even be dangerous. While we highly recommend getting instruction from a reliable school, we know you can have a lot of fun learning on trainer kite.
Trainer kites are typically made smaller than a standard kite. While larger kites are a bit more smooth, trainer kites can have sensitive controls and features that can ease the learning curve for new kiters. Other things to consider are the number of lines, the presence of a safety leash, wind range, and use of a harness loop.
