You may have seen it pass by, people who are busy keeping their kite under control on the beach, a meadow or wherever. These kites, also known as power kites, are also called mattress kites. Power kites can be used for hobbyists as well as for preparation for kite surfing, for example.

Different types of power kites

Within our range there are various power kites available, but what are those differences now? There are in particular 2 different types of kites, namely the power and stunt kites. Power kites are more like the kites you use on the water and are easy to control. These kites are also called mattress kites and are available with 2, 3 or 4 lines. If you are a beginner, we recommend taking a 2 line kite, as you get better at flying a kite, you can look at a 3 or 4 line power kite. There are also the stunt kites who feel a bit more aggressive due to their high speed with which they fly through the air, ideal for performing crazy turns and other tricks!

The right size power kite

When purchasing a power kite, it is important to choose the right size kite. Different properties can be looked at to see which kite suits you best:

  • Body weight
  • Wind force
  • Level of the power kiter

Weight vs. correct kite size

The heavier you are as a kite rider, the longer you can keep a kite when the wind gets stronger or, the bigger the kite that you can control.

Depending on your weight, you can choose the right size powerkite. For adults, most will choose between 2.5 and 4 square meters. Of course you want your power kite to be as versatile as possible so that you can use it as often as possible in the right weather conditions.

Below you can see a size chart for choosing the right size. Pay attention! This is and will remain an advice. It obviously differs in which wind force you fly and whether you are, for example, a boy or a girl. When in doubt, always let our colleagues at Telstar Surf advise you.
