Windspeed Ulysses Butterfly kite

This kite is designed as an image of the Ulysses Butterfly. The famous symbol of Queensland's tropical Dunk Island resort in the Whitsundays.
With a large sail, this beautiful blue butterfly kite will fly in a wide wind range from fairly light breezes to quite fresh winds, but is best in light to medium winds. It is a high-aspect kite. This means that it will fly very high in the sky. If this is a kite for very young kids, they may need some help in assembling it, but it is a very, very easy kite to fly.

Kite Type
Delta kites are single string kites for children and they are very well suited to light winds. This light wind ability comes from a big sail area which generates lots of ‘lift’ to get the kite up nice and high. To keep deltas nice and steady in the air as the wind picks up, we have long tails on them and these tails give the deltas ‘drag’ which keeps them stable in stronger winds.

A fairly modern design, deltas have only been around for about 80 years, nowhere near as long as diamond shapes that go back thousands of years. Kids love flying deltas because they are easy to fly, they fly in light winds and stay up nice and steady in medium winds.

It’s very easy to assemble, super easy to fly, and look great in the sky.



This is the way a kiteboarding shop should be. Staff are super friendly. They take the time to understand your requirements, provide advice and never put any pressure on you to buy anything. There's a huge range of stock and I've been able to demo a great range of kites and boards over the years.
After sales service is the best. Recently I had an issue with a kite I'd bought there which was well out of warranty and they didn't hesitate to inspect, diagnose and repair the issue for me and get me back on the water.

The culture of the business mirrors the passion and dedication of the company’s founder, Steve McCormack. And culture matters.

You’ll be purchasing from a family owned business that will do the right thing and put your safety and comfort first. I fully understand that you might not have an opportunity to meet Steve. And maybe if you're purchasing online you won't step foot inside their Sydney location. But I can tell you that Steve’s dedication to kiters and to the sport of kiting is imprinted into the DNA of Kitepower and the team.
