Fighter kites
עפיפוני קרב
In Thailand battles take place in April between kites acting as a couple. The
Chulas
– the
male kites are reminiscent of predators - and the
Pak-Paus
, are the female kites designed
like diamonds. The latter are smaller, but are not inferior, as it is easier to maneuver them.
Each of the parties must trap the other and make it return to the ground. The use of
crushed glass on the line is forbidden. Often the battle can continue for over an hour.
