Single Line Kites

The number of types of single line kites is almost endless, which is part of the fascination of them. But they can be grouped into about six categories, although there is some overlap.

(Not everyone will agree with my classification; in particular, many people include a category of "compound kites", but a classification is after all only a convenience. If you have a system you prefer, stick with it, and I'll do the same with mine, then we'll both be happy!)
