Fly Your Sea Gull Kite Dockside
The Sea Gull bird kite has a 42" wingspan. It looks quite realistic with its wings flapping in the breeze. If you have a high speed Internet connection, check out the manufacturer's video. (It's a very big movie; give it plenty of time to load). We sell a lot of seagull kites to boat owners and marinas for use as a scarecrow. It's also a smart way to draw attention to your business or event.
Like all of our bird kites, the Sea Gull is made from Tyvek, a synthetic paper-like material that's both very difficult to tear and water resistant. Tyvek is commonly used for envelopes, car covers, labels, coveralls, and house wrap. Netflix envelopes and disk sleeves are made of Tyvek because it's nearly indestructible and weighs almost nothing.
The Sea Gull kite is only sold in the Assembled version. Assembled bird kites require 3-step preparation using no tools or glue, and are ready to fly in minutes. They ship "knocked down" in a large mailing tube. "Assembled" does not mean ready-to-fly.
Non-US customers please note: At checkout, our software will offer you a First Class International Package rate based on this product's weight. However, bird kite tubes exceed the maximum allowable length for that rate. Please do not choose First Class International, as we cannot ship your kite outside of the US at that rate. We will have to either cancel your order or collect the additional cost for Priority Mail International.
About the Add-Ons
Poles: Jackite constantly sells out and replenishes specific poles. We try to keep our list up to date, but they don't always have all of the colors and sizes shown in our dropdown options. If the pole that you choose is unavailable, we will substitute the closest size and color that they have.
The 16' (4.87 m) or 17' (5.18 m) poles are recommended for standard-sized kites, although some customers prefer the 20' (6.09 m) length. And those who believe that higher is always better can go with the 28' (8.53 m) pole. The fiberglass poles telescope like an antenna from a collapsed length of just 46" (1.17 m). Extend the sections and twist to lock (to make your pole shorter, just don't extend all of the sections). These differ from telescoping fishing rods by having a reinforced butt end to prevent splitting, thicker walls for less breakage, and a thicker tip. The "flex-tip" poles have an extra-thin tip for better flexing, and can bend 180 degrees. Kites on flex-tip poles require more airspace to move around in.
We only sell poles as add-ons with kite purchases, not as a standalone product. Adding a pole to your order increases the shipping charge. Orders that include poles require special packaging and will ship factory-direct rather than from Curio City's warehouse, so it might take us an extra day or two to fulfill your order. Jackite usually ships these orders via UPS Ground regardless of the service that you choose at checkout. Jackite guarantees all poles for 90 days and sells replacement sections for a modest fee plus shipping if your pole breaks after that.
Ground Stake: This 22" (55.9 cm) length of PVC pipe with an angle cut on one end is the most popular way to set your kite pole. Push it into soft dirt or sand and insert your pole in the open end to hold it vertically. Adding a stake to your order increases the shipping charge. You can easily make one yourself, or buy ours to save yourself the hassle. Recommended for use with 13', 16', and 20' poles.
Flat Deck Mount: Attach this to any flat vertical surface, such as a deck or fence post. Can also be installed on the bumper of an RV, truck, or car. For 16' and 20' poles, it's made of metal and painted white. Can be repainted.
Side Deck Mount: Like the Flat Deck Mount but designed for corners.
Line Rig: You don't need a Line Rig to fly your kite, but it's the quickest and easiest way to attach one like a windsock to a fixed pole. The Line Rig can be used with any bird kite, although it was specifically designed for use with Osprey, Loon, Happy Gull, Dove, Eagle, or Goose bird kites. You get 7' (2.13 m) of strong, lightweight line with large swivels on each end. Snap one end onto your bird kite, snap the other end to the top of your pole, and you're ready to fly with minimal wrapping. Recommended for poles at least 13' (4 m) high. Adding a line rig to a kite purchase will not increase your shipping charge.
