G-Kites - Dual Line Stunt and Sport Kites

Gomberg Kite Productions started out in 1988 selling books we had published on how to fly stunt kites. We never competed (well -- just once but we won't talk about that...). But we did go on to judge competitions around the world and later to organize and chair the World Sport Kite Championships. And our stunt and sport kites books became best sellers in the kite community.

Now we have come full-circle by offering a series of diamond wing and delta wing dual line kites for sale.

Maneuverable kites take you from “static” to “active “ flying. You become the pilot! With two lines, you can steer your kite around the sky, or even create your own aerial ballet to music.

G-Kites now offers several styles and designs of Sport and Stunt Kites for different flying conditions and results. Power your way through big turns with long tails streaming behind, fashion sharp turns and maneuvers, or punch out the latest slack-line tricks.

Pieces Shown Below:
Sport Kites: Temptation | Firefly | Charisma
Stunt Kites: Chevron | Starburst
Flying Lijnes 100 Pound Lineset | 200 Pound Lineset
Tails: 45 Foot Skywriter Tail | Foot Skywriter Tail | Streamer Flags

Kevin Sanders of Australia has designed us an exceptional series of all-round freestyle sport kites that provide easy, predictable control, precise, responsive flight, and advanced trick capability in a wide wind range.

Temptation and Firefly (Full size 7.25 foot wingspan)

Temptation and Firefly were designed to do all the latest tricks, but in an easy manner that gives beginners, intermediate and skilled fliers a great flying experience.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 87 inches (2.2 meters)
  • Height: 39 inches (99 centimeters)
  • Weight: 10.4 ounces (295 grams)
  • Frame: 6 mm pultruded carbon
  • Sail: ripstop polyester
These are all-around freestyle sport kites that provide stable, predictable forward flight with superior speed control and advanced trick capability.

Temptation is available in three color choices. Firefly is available in two color choices. Note that the kites are identical but with different color patterns.

Temptation and Firefly

Features:

  • Covered ‘anti-snag’ leading edge fittings.
  • Roll Bars allow easy wrap and multi wrap tricks.
  • Tail weights for advanced pitch control.
  • Intended for all levels of experience.
Temptation is available in three color choices. Firefly is available in two color choices. Both retail for $90. We can add a set of 100 pound dynema flying lines and straps for $20.00.

Advanced kites generally come without flying line. That’s because many kiters already have line and don't want to pay for a new set with each kite they buy.

If you need line, check out the options listed at the bottom of this page.

Charisma (Moderate 6.5 foot wingspan)

Charisma is a light-pulling freestyle sport kite that provides easy, responsive flight and advanced trick capability in a wide wind range. It was designed for superior speed control, easy, forgiving handling, stable and predictable performance for freestyle tricks, and smooth transitions for seamless free flowing flying.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 78 inches (2.0 meters)
  • Height: 39 inches (90 centimeters)
  • Weight: 9 ounces (255 grams)
  • Frame: 5.5 mm pultruded carbon
  • Sail: ripstop polyester
  • Three color choices

The slightly smaller wing size reduces pull and improves control with less physical effort.

Chrisma is available in three color choices and retails for $79.00. We can add a set of 100 pound dynema flying lines and straps for $20.00.

Flying a Diamond Wing Stunt Kite will give you a completely different experience than the high performance “sport” kites. The Diamonds have a larger sail area, more pull, and come with long sweeping tails. Some say the slower Diamonds are easier to fly; others say they are just another kind of fun.

Stack several together and get a real workout flying your “kite train”.

Starburst Stunt Kite:

When we first discovered maneuverable kites back in the Seventies, they were diamond shaped. “Stunters” came with long flowing tails, pulled hard, and roared around the sky. Flying those kites changed our lives.

Starburst

The Starburst harkens back to those early physical flying days. It won’t do axels, flips, or fades. But it will put a huge smile on your face as you drive it through the wind.

We built the Starburst with slightly heavier framing for durability in stronger winds. Beginners will enjoy the fast learning curve, while experienced fliers will appreciate the unique diamond-wing performance.

Long fabric tails add to the show as you sky-write with each loop or turn.

Add several kites together in stacks for a spectacular presentation. We’ve included detachable train lines and a quick “pigtail” connection system.

Starburst

Each Starburst is 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. A matching 45 foot tail is included. Best performance will be in 7 to 17 mph of wind. Fly a single Starburst on 100-pound lines or stacks of up to six on 200-pound lines.

Available in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple with black and white accents. Each Starburst is $40.

Chevron

Chevron Stunt Kite:

The Chevron is the second stunter in our series of maneuverable kites. You pilot it through the air with two flying lines. We’ve made it tough, forgiving, and easy to handle.

Each Chevron is 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. A matching 45 foot tail is included.

The main difference between the Chevron and the Starburst is that the Chevron is made with a slightly lighter frame. This allows better performance in lighter winds. Fly a single Chevron in 4-15 mph on 100 pound line. Stacks of up to six can use 200 pound line.

Available in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple with black and white accents. Each Chevron is $40. We’ve included detachable train lines and a quick “pigtail” connection system.

Flying Line:

Stunt and Sport kites don’t come with line. The reason is that many kiters already have kites and don’t want to pay for new line sets with each new kite. But if this is your first kite, or if you are ready for new lines, we have just the thing!

  • 100 pound Dynema – a pair of 100 foot lines, pre-stretched, sleeved, and wound on a plastic winder. Straps included. $20
  • 200 pound Dynema – a pair of 100 foot lines, pre-stretched, sleeved, and wound on a plastic winder. Large padded straps included. $28

Lines for maneuverable kites are different from other kite lines. You want something that is very thin - to reduce drag. You want a line that is slippery – so when you complete loops and twist the line, you can still control the kite. You want line that has minimal stretch – so when you pull on one, the kite gets the signal. And you want a line that is durable – so you don’t need to buy more again soon.

45 Foot Skywriter Tails:

Connect one behind a stunter and leave a trail in the sky! Or put several on your static kite or flying line. These colorful tails are made of tough nylon sailcloth and will add excitement to any kite. They are especially made for maneuverable kites or “skywriting” with long poles.

Skywriter Tails

Each “ribbon” is 45 feet long, fully hemmed, and constructed with a reinforced eyelet. The durable nylon fabric will stay bright for years. Available in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, White, or Black for $15 each.

100 Foot "Skywriter" Ribbon:

Leave a trail in the sky! Our 100 foot ribbons are made from tough nylon sailcloth and will add excitement to any kite. Use them to accent a traditional kite or for “skywriting” with maneuverable kites.

Available in six color combinations
  • Rainbow (re/orange/yellow/green/blue/purple)
  • Miami (blue/purple/black)
  • Phoenix (red/yellow/black)
  • Warm (red/orange/yellow)
  • Cool (purple/blue/green)
  • Patriot (red/white/blue)
  • Each multicolored ribbon is 100 feet long, hemmed for durability, and constructed with a reinforced eyelet. The durable nylon fabric will stay bright for years.

    100 foot Ribbons are priced at just $25 each.

    Single Streamer Flag:

    It is one long shimmering piece of fabric. Streamers are usually used on single-line kites but they work great with Sport kityes too!

    Streamer Flag

    Streamer Flags are simple, dramatic, and efficient.

    They are completely hemmed, abuse-tolerant, and available in any of the six primary colors plus black and white. Each flag is equipped with two reinforced tabs at the top for easy attachment.

    We have two sizes -- two feet wide and seventy-five feet long for $35 or thirteen inches wide and thirty-five feet long for just $19.

    The leading edge is designed so you can insert a rod or stiffener and hold it in place. Just fold back the seam, slide your spar in, and fold the seam back over. We don't provide spars because some fliers don't want them. But you have the option of flying your streamer soft or as a more rigid pennant.

    Streamer Flag

    Available in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, and white.
