Go Fly A Kite in Newport!

April is National Kite Month

Every April across the United States, and especially in coastal towns with strong spring winds, kite enthusiasts celebrate the history and the future of kite building and flying by letting their kites fly. Join us on the Central Oregon Coast as we celebrate National Kite Month by raising our kites into the wind, and then directing them to soar high into the sky and over the sand and waves. Newport offers miles of  beaches that are perfect for kite flying, so bring your own kite or pick one up here!


Agate Beach, Nye Beach, and South Beach are some of the best local spots for kite flying. Come to the coast with the whole family, and spend the day or the weekend playing on the beach and flying kites. If you’ve never flown a kite before, that’s OK. Kite flying is easy to learn, but it might take a few tries to master, depending on the strength of the wind and the kind of kite you have chosen to fly.


If you’re selecting a kite for the first time, visit our favorite local shop for information on what kind of kite to buy and some simple techniques to get you started.
