RIDE THE WIND JIGSAW
Our kites feature on a jigsaw puzzle (Ride the
Wild Wind) sold around the world by Visual Echo
made by Hobbico.
The actual puzzle is 3D so it is very hard to do as,
depending on the angle you view it, each piece
There are 9 of our kites in the jigsaw picture.
Can you find them?
The jigsaw picture designer Royce McClure of
Tauranga asked if we could fly some of our kites
so he could get some different shaped kites and the
flying perspectives correct. Of course, the chosen
day had no wind so there was a lot of running
involved. Fortunately for us, Royce ran out of time
to put his graphics on our kite shapes so they all
appear in the jigsaw with our graphics.
These are a few of those special moments/events that have occurred as a result of our kite making and flying
around New Zealand and the world.
Our Special Moments in Kiting
In April 2015 we were approached by Jam TV to see if we would
participate in the Rotorua episode of This Town. It was all about
ordinary people doing extraordinary or different things. We spent nearly
7 hours over 3 days with a crew of 4 wonderful people filming material
on kite making, flying and an interview for what will be one of ten 2 to 5
minute segments in the 45 minute program.
The program went to air on TV1 at 8-30pm Wednesday 12 August 2015.
Film from the kite making was not in the final program, only the outdoor
segment was shown.
