How to Fly a Kite?

As extracted from WikiHow, the 8 steps to fly a kite are (but with minor re-odering of sequence):

1. Find a buddy to help you get the kite into the air.

2. Pay attention to the wind direction, here is a diagram:
  • Suppose that "I" is you and "U" is the other person holding the kite
  • Wind is blowing this direction: I ------------------------------------> U
  • "I" stands one end (with the string) ------> "U" stands other end ( with the kite)

3. You should hold the ball of string and have your buddy hold the kite or vice versa. The kite should be facing you and the wind.

4. Unwind about 30 yards (23 meters) of string.

5. Signal to your buddy to release the kite. You should pull on the string to launch your kite into the air.

6. Make sure the wind is going in a straight line from you to the other person.

7. To allow the kite to go higher, release length of string.

8. To lower the kite, simply pull in the string.
