Kite flying is a popular sport across Asia, especially in India. Kites manufacturing and designing are very much prominent in Southern Asia. In this sport, the participants snag the opponent's kites.
Usually, the kite has a roughly triangular shape known as the delta, which has two different lines for control.
The kites are manufactured with lightweight nylon ripstop or ripstop polyester with tubing made of carbon fibre.
These kites are designed in a way that they can be flown even in the hardest conditions. The standard kites used for flying can stand a wind speed of 1.5 to 4 meters per second. The high wind kites can be flown during a wind speed of 14 meters per second or even more.
The objective of kite flying is to keep the kites safe from other participants and try to control it with a pair of handles. The players cut others' kites to stay in the match and score more points. To control the kite, the participants pull the right-hand line towards the left hand and keep on doing so, to control the kite. There are usually three types of kites used for the kite flying competition, which includes the traditional sport kites, trick kites and quad line kites.
