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. Between Oct 2016 and Dec 2021 we explored NZ bike trails on our E-bikes. Only Ray continues to ride his E-bike.

This website only represents a small portion of both our kites and our kiting activity in the last 23 years when digital photos became available.

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

Many pages have been reviewed and updated as photos of 2nd double star, Maui finds his mother delta, and Hinemoa story dellaporta were added.

We don't stop kite flying because we grow old;
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 childrens playground, car park and new walkways. 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.
See P4 of Our Special Moments in Kiting for the maiden flight of a dellaporta featuring our very special Rotorua based story of Hinemoa and Tutanekai.
