When was the last time you flew a kite on the beach? For most of us, this simple pastime probably takes us back to childhood. HQ Kites wants us to rediscover that long-forgotten joy with its Calypso II Rainbow kite.

It's easy to get daunted around kites, particularly if you're out of flying practice. But this kite is an entry-level model, so it should start quickly soaring with just a little help from a gentle sea breeze. This colorful beauty measures 2 x 6 x 32 inches, so it should look pretty majestic once it's up in the air too! If you feel it getting away from you, simply add a tube tail to slow things down.

$19.99 seems pretty cheap for a kite, but don't assume this is a flimsy beach toy. The colorful wings are made from lightweight ripstop nylon, while the rods are crafted from fiber glass. This material promises to be virtually indestructible, which is a good thing if the kite takes a nose dive!

I can't promise that this kite will reignite your childhood passion, but flying it should make a nice change of pace from throwing about the Frisbee. And unlike swimming, it's something you can comfortably do on the beach all year round!
