Big Stuff Sale!

OK! Everyone else on your gift list is taken care of. So now is the time to buy yourself a really cool present.

Each December, we put our inventory of used showpieces on sale. Since the prices for new kites has gone through the roof, this is a chance to grab something at a decent cost but with years of life left in it.

If you are interested, drop me a note and Iíll give you the specifics on each piece. Here is an overview.

Red Devil

Red Devil:

This is a great flying kite, designed by Pedro and Esteban Gonzalez of Spain. He was brought to Long Beach, flown there, and left with me. And I'd be happy to leave him with you next.

List price on the 90 foot giant is $5000. We'll send him off for the holidays for $4250.

Giant Crab
Giant Crab: The Crab is the latest design from Peter Lynn Ltd. It offers a huge, compact mass as opposed to other inflatables with long tails. A complex and detailed bridling system adds to the satisfaction of presenting this amazing flying creation on your beach or field.

Lift is generated with the large claws that inflate through vents and are sealed off from the main body. The shell and feelers are filled though a mesh panel in the front and deflate with a zipper in the back.

Current price is NewZealand$6400 which converts to $5054 in US dollars. Used price: $4000.

Giant Fish: Body length is about 60 feet with extended fin tubes adding another 30 feet to the overall impression. Each piece comes complete with a fish drogue for flight stability.

Launching works better with a pilot, but I find the Fish performs well without one. And with the largest intake opening of any PL inflatable, it fills and deflates very quickly and in relatively light winds.

Current price is NewZealand$6400 which converts to $5054 in US dollars. Used price: $4000.

Giant Cat:She is 40 feet tall and guaranteed to scare the heck out of any mouse in the neighborhood. And we promise your new Kitty will be the biggest hit on your flying field too.

The inflatable Cat is a great flier, but you will need to use a pilot kite for stability and light-wind lift.

Current price is NewZealand$6400 which converts to $5054 in US dollars. Used price: $4000.

Dog Days

Flying Dog He is big and happy with long flappy ears, a drooling tongue, and a long wagging tail. The Dog inflates through vents above the eyes and includes a delation zipper in the back. Use a Pilot kite to lift him just off the ground for a great show!

Current price is NewZealand$6400 which converts to $5054 in US dollars. Used price: $4000.

Penguin

Penguin: He is cool! I mean *really* cool!

Our flying Penguin floats in the air with his big yellow feet waddling below. And he flies remarkably well! A pilot provides more stability but I'm amazed how well this piece floats given its boxy shape

Current price is NewZealand$4580 which converts to $3616 in US dollars. Used price: $3000.

Teddy Bear: Everyone needs a big, cuddly teddy!

Peter himself was surprised at how well this big bear flew. Handles light winds well and really draws a crowd.

Universally popular for it's friendly face and cuddly appearance, each kite includes a big "Honey Pot" drogue.

Current price is NewZealand$6000 which converts to $4734 in US dollars. Used price: $4000.
