— In-Game Description

The Kite Shield is a shield found in Breath of the Wild. It has a base Shield Guard of 14, and has an unusual design for a shield, however it does function as well as other shields of the same defense rating. In appearance, it is in the rough shape of a kite, sporting many different colors and Rito feathers attached to the base of the shield.

It's one of the rarest shields in the game. Only four Kite Shields exist within Hyrule (three in the base game, one in Master Mode), and once broken do not reappear, rendering them irrecoverable. Neither Rito nor monsters are shown wielding them.

They can be found:

For the Hyrule Compendium one can be photographed on the wall of Selmie's Spot but cannot be taken.

Contrary to popular belief, the Kite Shield has only average-to-low shield surfing statistics overall in spite of its reputation otherwise. It amounts to 0.25 durability points/sec, which at 16 points of durability amounts to just 64 seconds of sledding.
