|The eagle kite comes in different sizes. This gentleman specializes in flying the eagle kite and has many sizes ranging from kites even smaller than the one he is holding to kites that are 4 and 5 feet wide. Smaller kites are better in strong winds, the force of the wind on a large kite would break the string. You fit the kite to the flying conditions.
Notice that the string winder is a bit more advanced than the ball of twine you used as a kid.
