Introducing the Kites

From one kite to one hundred, perhaps. We lost count some time ago.

Over the years our kite collection has grown not only in size but also in scale with our first giant kite being added in 2012 - a Peter Lynn gecko measuring nearly 100ft.

Once Craig got to grips with an industrial sewing machine there was no stopping him. He designed and built a 32ft hippo, quickly followed by a giant manta ray, lovingly handcrafted from tents left behind at Solfest Music Festival.

In 2014, a record-breaking 64ft purple teddy bear called Oscar was born, and the kite world wanted to see him. He still gets the invitations, we just drive or fly him there.

New kites for 2015 included a red manta ray, multi-coloured rainbow cuttlefish, and our biggest kite to date - a 120ft octopus (previously owned by the Al Farsi Kite Team) - all designed and built by Peter Lynn Kites of New Zealand.

2016 - 2017 saw us add a giant red, green and black guppy fish and two kites by English designers and makers - a 45ft scuba diver by Martin Lester, and a limited edition Phoenix kite by Karl Longbottom.

At the end of 2017, we became the extremely proud owners of one-of-only six super-ultra-light manta ray kites in the world - perfect for very light wind days and proving to be the star of the show on more than one occasion. A 42ft whale shark, purchased during our adventures to China, completed the 2017 kite buys.
