Go fly a kite!
Jul 2021 • Family
I can always find a fun kite here. We got kites for our grandsons, too. We fly them when we are on the beach to mark our spot. When you are walking down the beach it’s easy to lose track of where your set up is. So we fly our kits to mark it for easy identification. We have done this since our kids were little and now for grands. 😃

Stop In And Look, You’ll Be Glad You Did!

This is a little long, but I want you to know and feel where you are going. Fly It Port A quickly became my favorite place in Port Aransas. The shop first cut my attention with all of the colorful flags and wind spinners on the outside. When you go inside, it is a wonderland of all things wind related, from flags and banners, to windsocks, to spinners, and kites from one end of the spectrum to the other. A kite selection that includes everything from kiddie kites that cost only a few bucks to professional kites with dual lines and quad lines, also very large and showy kites. There is also an extensive collection of hard to find toys and puzzles. Ralph quickly took me in and re-introduced me to kite flying as an adult. He is very knowledgeable and extremely patient when sharing that knowledge. He has completely and totally fueled my passion for this hobby. Sure, you can buy a “kite” at a big box store, but that will leave you disappointed and it is completely different from what you will find at Fly It Port A. When you compare apples to apples, you will find this local shop very competitive. I have now been to the shop several times and have always been treated very fairly and gain more knowledge and passion with each visit. I look forward to the next time I get to stop in. I can almost guarantee that you will find something that makes you say “That is so cool!” and I’m pretty sure that temptation will overcome and you won’t leave empty handed. Stop in and see, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised and it doesn’t cost anything to look!

Wonderful Kite Shop

Great place to buy a kite. The owners are incredibly helpful and want to get you into the right kite for you. They are very patient teaching larks head knots, instruction for assembly and tips for flying.

This place is incredible. They have kites and other objects for the child beginner to the professional. Incredible unique kite designs. Choice is endless. If you need something cheap for a small child or a high performance set up to impress this place had it all.

The most kites I've ever seen in one place!
Jan 2020
Kite flying is a wonderful activity on the beach. We bought several and retired to the beach where a semi-scheduled event was happening. It's quite a sight when more than 40 kites are in the air (and several were very large and ornate). Don't miss the opportunity to learn about kites and "line-laundry" from the shop. Especially don't miss the frequent perfect conditions for kite flying on the beach. I found the kite flying community to be warm and inclusive and eager to share experiences and techniques to help newbies. The group even invited us to join them at the local pizza joint for the post flying dinner. Good people!

Fabulous Kite Store
Jan 2020
If you want to make the Gulf breezes more colorful, pay a visit to Fly It and select from the wide variety of kites, windsocks and flags. The very helpful and knowledgeable owner has operated in Port A for decades and even rebuilt after Hurricane Harvey. Beware, though - you won't walk away with just one item!

Outstanding service
Apr 2019 • Family
Fabulous selection and great service! Helped fix an old stunt kite I bought years ago from them.
Locally owned and well worth the visit.
Over heard him handle another custom that wanted the be all end all kite that was top dollar, the owner heavily suggested another kite 1/3 of price so he isn’t in it for the quick money.

Always something new
Feb 2019 • Friends
We can’t make our trips to Corpus Christi and Port A without stopping by to see what Ralph has at Fly it Port A Kite Shop. Went by on Friday and stopped in again on Sunday to pick up a new Kite and replace some line that was worn out. All the new stock is coming in, the shop was full. Can’t wait to see the “rebuilt” store at the old location, Port A Strong!

Whether you live in the area or are just visiting, this is the place to go for kites, windsocks, spinning yard decorations...they have everything!!! It is always nice to watch a colorful kite flying up in the air especially on the beach. If this is your thing, guaranteed...you will not leave this store empty-handed! The selection is absolutely amazing! The owner is extremely friendly and very helpful in helping you choose the best kite for you whether you are a beginner like me or have been doing this for awhile.
