McCully's Kites
Ray & Rosemary McCully welcome you to their world of kiting.
We are a retired married couple living in Rotorua, New Zealand.
Our main interests are kite making (not for sale) and flying, contract bridge and travel to NZ kite events and overseas kite festivals. We have also recently taken up exploring NZ bike trails on our E-bikes purchased in Oct 2016.

This website only represents a small portion of both our kites and our kiting activity in the last 20 years when digital photos became available.

Ray is currently secretary/treasurer of the New Zealand Kitefliers Association (NZKA) and plays croquet and table tennis.
NZKA is on Facebook at

Whats new on the site: Matariki 2019 was our first complete winter wipeout - Tauranga cancelled due to rain and little wind. Manuwera Auckland fine and sunny but no wind all day.
Gisborne, October 5th Arts Festival - fine and very strong gusty winds limited the display to soft kites.
Preparation for the 2019 kite workshop is underway.
