Welcome to Kite Forge

Kites tempered on fields around the world…

Browse around for a wealth of information about new kite design(s) from 31-time US national champion John Barresi, each designed to work not only for the various disciplines he enjoys, but also to be almost universally adaptable for pilots of nearly any caliber.  While these kites are available to the general public, they were not created as “products”, they were each designed to fulfill a level of performance and accessibility for our own pilots  – what you see here is exactly what John flies, no mods, no tweaks.

Please say hello to our sponsored pilots on Team KiteLife, appearing at festivals throughout the year.

This unique and highly refined dogstake allows a pilot to cycle their lines through a system so they can stand downwind *alongside* their kite, piloting, observing and even physically interacting with it.  Comes ready to use with the KŪBE head, screw stake and corresponding mount. Since put these together in small batches of 10-15 at a time, backordered KŪBE orders are generally fulfilled within 2-3 weeks.
