Looking to buy your first kite or add one to your collection?
As we all know physical kite shops are becoming a rarity these days and we often get asked where people can buy a kite from.
There are quite a few on-line kite retailers but one that our club members often use and comes highly recommended is Kites4U.
Kites4U are an Internation kite retailer based in Sleaford, Lincolnshire and is owned and run by Manni Kluge.
They have what is probably the UK's largest choice of kites for all ages and also stock kite accessories, have a large choice of climax kite flying lines, windsocks, large inflatables and line laundry and decorative wind art items for your home or garden.
For the expert or more adventurous kite flyer they have a good selection of larger kites in stock and Manni prides himself on his customer service. Being an International kite retailer, if he doesn't have in stock what you require - he can source your dream kite both speedily and cost effectively. 

Manni has been an active kite flyer since the late 80s and has enough practical and theoretical knowledge to help you out if you require detailed information and offers no-nonsense practical advice.
