Stunt Kiting

 

Students get the oppourtunity to get a taste of a large component of the Yr 12 and Yr 13 Outdoor Education course by participating in stunt kite flying and potentially kite boarding. When conditions and wind is suitable, students get to launch and feel the power of the school's 1m stunt kites performing figure 8's, kite loops and ground swoops to test their control and understanding of wind windows and power zones. Where appropriate the progression to the 3m version with a land board may further challenge those keen students looking at the possibility of becoming one of the kite surfing fraternity seen in and around Tauranga Harbour, Mount and Maketu beaches.
