How can I contact SKA ?

Please plan your kite event at least one-month in advance. It is very challenging for us to assist with short notice.
Our primary contact is via email. For enquiries email:
enquiries[at]singaporekites.com
-replace[at] with the "@" symbol

Where to buy materials to make kites ?
Try a craft & hobby store : Spotlight
or contact SKA for ready made kite kits with SKA instructors in attendance.

Does SKA conduct kite workshops ?
Yes, SKA can tailor kite workshops to dovetail into your requirements. We have conducted workshops for groups ranging from 10 to 600 pax. 

Email us with sufficient preparation time (1 - 2 months notice is desired) 

Does SKA fly luminous  kites ?
Kites are tethered flying objects. 

It has come to our attention that a local company is marketing remote control flying crafts (fitted with flashing LED lights) with the word "kite" in their product.
These powered unidentified flying objects are NOT "kites"

Conversely, if you see a flying toilet seat tethered on a line, this flying seat is a kite.


Do SKA give FREE talks on kites ?
Unfortunately unable to accommodate at present moment. But you can always register your interests with us by dropping us an email.
