Awesome Shop
Oct 2020 • Family
Popped in to treat the hubby and daughter with nicer kites than the cheesy tourist shops sell. Fantastic staff that was beyond accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. Each are thrilled with their purchases and we had an amazing flying experience. Definitely recommend paying a visit and trying your hand and something so simple yet fun!!

Great selection and knowledgeable staff

Great staff! Super friendly and very knowledgeable. They also offer free lessons for all types of kite flying! We visited during a kite festival and it was just a wonderful experience. We have visited OCMD several times this year and have already purchased 2 kites from here!

Wonderful, Unique Beach Boardwalk Store!
Jun 2019
Just walking past this place gives my heart a lift seeing all the fun, colorful flags, spinners and streamers outside taking advantage of the beach’s windy breeze! It’s the picture of what a beach boardwalk store should look like. Yes, it can be a bit pricey, but there’s nothing wrong with an occasional splurge. You’ll find a large selection of merchandise that’s fun to browse, even if you don’t buy a thing. I bought a double flower garden spinner that I absolutely love; a great souvenir of an enjoyable trip to Ocean City. This is a unique store and I haven’t been to another like it.

also free lessons

Bought my second kite from these folks yesterday. First kite, maybe 5-6 years ago, was a simple one-line kite, and I still have and use that. But I wanted a 2-line stunt kite, so I went in and asked, and learned a lot about the different varieties. After purchasing my new kite I was directed outside to the free flying lessons, where Daniel helped me figure out how to launch the kite and keep it aloft, plus a few basic tricks (which I still have to practice!). All in all a fantastic shopping experience.

Fascinating
Jun 2019 • Couples
If they don't have a type of kite, it doesn't exist. Our grandchildren were mesmerized. Very helpful and walked out with more than I anticipated. Very friendly and helpful, although sometimes language is a problem since most clerks seemed to be from the old Soviet bloc. You will enjoy just looking around.

Always Stop in Here Whenever I am in Ocean City

This is by far my favorite shop in Ocean City. It is full of interesting and creative gifts from kites to wind chimes to puzzles to flags. It is a pleasure just to walk around inside. The prices seem very reasonable to me.

Kite and Whirligig Heaven
Apr 2019 • Couples
Our visit to Ocean City was in late April and we'd just missed the big kite expo, but weather conditions were still good for kite flying so we stopped in The Kite Loft. The customer service was excellent. The variety of kites was amazing - from novice fliers to competitive fliers - in all shapes, sizes, designs, and colors. They also had many whimsical whirligigs for decorative display on decks, porches, or in yards. We selected a simple, easy-to-fly stowaway delta kite. We had tons of fun flying it on the beach.

Bright, Festive, exciting, and way more than just kites!
Aug 2018 • Solo
have been coming to the Kite Loft for many many years, and it is one of my mother's favorite stops!

The store is quite colorful, and could put one into sensory overload...lol. it brings out your "inner child".

The store has a friendly staff, and has lots of things out to try, higher quality shirts than many of the souvineer shops, lawn spinners, toys, mugs, and much more, I closing.....kites😉.

If you have never ventured in, thinking it was just kites......do yourself a favor, and browse the two floor store. It's a great time
