G-Kites - Inflatables

Think of hot air balloons. Think of the Thanksgiving Day Parades. Did you ever imagine that you too could be flying something like that??

Inflatable kites have no sticks. They are filled by the wind and a specially engineered internal structure gives them shape. And we can make them really big! Usually we add a "lifter kite" to increase buoyancy and stability.

Pieces Shown Below:
Inflatable Kites: Diablo | Gecko | Flying Penguin | Flying Duck | Octopus

Diablo

Diablo:

Here is the long-awaited smaller version of the wonderful Gonzalez Devil. We're calling him Diablo.

Larger pieces are still available, but we've added a fun 3x9 foot model at a lower price that you can afford to stack up under a lifter or just fly one for fun.

There is nothing to assemble, nothing to lose, nothing to break. Just pull it out of the bag, stretch out the bridles, let the wind fill out the shape, and pop it into the air. Then stand back and watch these whimsical kites attract smiles.

Diablo is $99. Buy three and get 20% off! Click here for a photo.

Gecko

Inflatable Gecko:

Watching this 25 foot Peter Lynn lizard "climb" into the wind will amaze everyone. The tail and legs create a realistic motion in any breeze. Yes, it will fly alone, but we strongly recommend a lifter for added stability and flight angle. .

We can make Gecko in red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, violet, purple, or black.

You pay just $460 for this enormous show stopper! And you get to choose the colors too!! Click here for a photo.

Inflatable Octopus: They're priced right, easy to pack, and fly great. Oh, and Susie says be sure to mention "very cute".

Check out our special details like three-dimensional inflated eyes that stand out from the face of the kite. Cupped suckers on the tentacles generate improved drag and stability. Lifter loops make it easy to attach a kite.

We stock the small Octopus in red, yellow, green, blue, or purple.

Fun Size Octopus

Most inflatables fly better with a lifter.That means you use another kite to provide a boost.

For smaller and mid-size inflatables, don't tie the lifter line directly to the primary kite. Wind gusts or larger lifters may cause damage. Instead, anchor the lifter on one line, and the inflatable on a second line from the same anchor point. Then attach the inflatable to the line of the lifter using the "lifter loop" with a snap or other slider and let it float up the lifter-line.

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

Our flying Penguin floats in the air with his big yellow feet waddling below. It is a solid flying design but refinements in the construction process allow us to offer this big bird at prices lower than comparably sized inflatables.

Some people think he looks like a Duck. Fine! If you want a "Yellow Penguin" with an orange bill, let us know! You can either for just $99.
