Up Up & Away Kites

Best Kites, August 2009

Fabric stretched on a diamond-shaped frame and a piece of string: How complicated can a kite be? Quite. There are more than a hundred styles at Up Up & Away Kites in Seal Beach. Get serious with a $350 Revolution 1.5 SLE, which has a 91-inch wingspan, or just thrill your kid with a beach-worthy $23.99 Box-Delta Meridian.
