Find a windy location, I like going to the beach.
Lay your kite down. The bottom side should be facing up. Then you can attach the kite wires. I fly a simple kite by the brand Prism which has no hard parts which means I can crash and not worry!
When the kite is securely fastened you're just about ready to fly.
The string on my kite is 100 feet long, that's a pretty nice distance.
You'll be looking up a lot so your neck might start to cramp up! When I doing loops I tend to count how many I did so I can do the same number in the opposite direction. Tangled wires are not fun!
Once you've had a bit of practice try attaching a tail to the kite. It's slightly more challenging to fly a kite with a tail because it's heavier, slower and less maneuverable. But, it looks great!
