Hand Protection for Hobbyists? Go Fly a Kite!

Flying a kite is an exciting way to enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise. If you never had the opportunity to try it, then let me tell you that kite flying has both its challenges and yes, dangers.

Part of the draw to kite flying is the challenge of catching the right breeze so it soars upward into the sky. With some experience, you can actually learn to manipulate the kite and make it plunge, soar or even “dance” but this can result in a minor, but very annoying hand injury...seriously!

If you ever experienced a kite “grab air” you know what happens next – the line spools off the reel leaving you to pinch the line and the result is typically a laceration similar to a paper cut! Kite line is made of small diameter twisted nylon similar to fishing line. It’s very thin and strong and when ripped across the flesh at high speeds, it slices deep and boy does it sting. Because these cuts often occur in the folds of fingers and palms, the stinging effect could last for awhile.
