Parafoil kites are great if you do not want to lug around a big long kite. Parafoil kites are made of fabric with no solid frame. Parafoils work by filling with air when open creating lift. When you are all done, you can pack up your foil kite into a package that typically fits in your hand. Parafoil kites are very popular for vacationers and can easily fit into a suitcase or carry-on with no issue. Even if you are not traveling, it is a great idea to keep a kite in your trunk. Whenever you are bored, you will always have something to do!
