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

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.
