    Default Where to BUY kites in the West

    Hi all, Just recently discovered the joys of kite flying with my Little daughter. Thought of upgrading my puny kite to a more 'magnificent' (big and impressive ) one. Wondering where to buy one of those in the west - Clementi / Bukit Timah area .

    in Marina Barracks, there is a shop at the ground flour that sells very nice and affordable big big kites with fleshing lights. Get it from there and can go fly kite on the spot.

    I think 'kite central' is now more at Sengkang or Barrage or some say Woodlands Drive 16.

    Those kites arn't of great quality at queensway, I recommend u can try at west coast park during weekends around 6-7pm there's a few kite sellers near to the seaside who sells pretty good quality and are helpful to impart some kite flying techniques to you. They have Led lights to clip onto your kites as well for nite flying. One of the seller's name is Jason Ho, look out for him. I bought my 2m big smiley kite from him and it's real solid. Cheers!

    Managed to get from Jack & Jan from the above blog. For a small fee they actually deliver to your doorstep otherwise have to go to their place @ Sengkang.

    Tie a dead knot?

    Ok...now that i have a decent and respectable kite (and a big thread wheel)....can I ask if I should tie a dead knot from the kite to the thread wheel. If I do this then I would not be able to interchange the thread wheel right?

    Any suggestions for interchanging the thread wheel with other kites (I intend to invest in one or two more).

    Thanks

    King of Kites is run by a Mr Zhang. Mobile 81273058.
    His office is located at Wing Tai Industrial Building along Tampines Rd (level 5).

    In fact, i just got huge kites from him this evening.

    IMO, his prices/kite quality are one of the better ones around.

    Get a fishing tackle swivel & tie that to your spool of string. In this way, you can unlatch the kite from it easily. Available from fishing tackle shop, Daiso etc.
