The Windspeed Mermaid Kite
Kites provide hours of outdoor fun for kids of all ages and single string kites are fantastic for younger children to discover the freedom of soaring sky high. This Mermaid Diamond Kite from Windspeed Kites is vibrantly-coloured and has a happy and pretty mermaid printed on the sail. It is an excellent flyer for all ages. Like all good diamond shapes, it's very stable in flight. It has a rip-stop nylon sail, a 74cm wingspan, and suits medium to fresh winds. Easy to assemble in less than 30 seconds, take it on your next outdoor adventure to see what it can do!
Diamonds are Single String kites suited to kids of all ages that fly best in light to medium winds. All children, even young kids, will find our diamond kites really, really easy to fly. Just hold ’em to the wind and up they will go.
Diamond kites are a traditional design and diamond kite designs have been around for thousands of years. Windspeed has updated and modernised them a fair bit with great materials like ripstop nylon sailcloth and strong fibreglass frames but the joy and pleasure for kids flying them are still the same!
Diamond kites need slightly more wind than, say, delta designs but their shape, and the long tails on them make them really stable in the sky as the wind picks up. Is one shape better than the other? No, not really…they are just ‘different’. Deltas are usually better in light to medium winds while Diamonds are better suited to medium to fresh winds.
All of our diamond kites are super simple to put together. Just slip 2 sticks (we call them rods or spars) across the back and you’re ready to fly.
