Diamond Kites

Diamond Kites are certainly the most iconic and recognizable style in North American culture, bringing to mind images of Charlie Brown and Benjamin Franklin. Traditional diamond kites are characteristically a flat, elongated diamond shape that require a tail. Modern diamond kites are sometimes referred to as an Eddy Diamond Kite based on the work of William Abner Eddy, who added a bow (or curve) to the traditional diamond that reduced the need for a tail.
