Hi I'm new to this site and looking to get into stunt flying. I used to kite buggy quite regularly but due change of jobs haven't really flown for about 8 years. Flying a power kite static is a good work out but after that not great, so looking at giving stunt kites a go, any suggestions of which kite to get would be much appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Depends on your budget, and what you want to achieve. There are lots of good stunt kites out there, and lots of rubbish too. Keep away from eBay unless you know what you are looking for. Stunt kites can be broadly put into three categories: Precision - big, quite slow, pull hard, track straight. They tend to be hard to find these days, and relatively expensive new stunt - good general kites, smaller than the precision kites so quicker, don't track quite so well, but will be good fun. Mid priced. trick - usually larger than the normal stunt kites, and usually higher aspect ratio these days. Designed to pitch and spin, so tend not to track so well. Expect to pay £250 + new
4 lines!??!! Oh, I thought I knew what I wanted, now I'm not so sure...
Perhaps start with a two line and evolve your flying technique, although "rev" flying 4 lines is a completely different technique,and as Tim as stated this may suit you better as you have powerkited previously. personal choice
