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
Ray is currently secretary/treasurer of the New Zealand Kitefliers
Association (NZKA) and plays croquet and table tennis.
Whats new on the site:
Gisborne, October 5th Arts Festival - fine and very
strong gusty winds limited the display to soft kites.

We don't stop kite
flying because we
we grow old because
we stop flying kites.
Things are a changing!
We will have no more kite flying in Rotorua, as
"progress" has resulted in our lakefront flying
venue becoming a construction zone as the
council turn the field into a park with trees and
flower gardens. 20 yrs of flying at the lakefront
ended in December 2019.
A fun fly now involves a 1 hour drive to
Fergusson Park Tauranga or down to Taupo.
