As part of a trip to France, Sweden and USA to fly kites and visit friends we spent a few days at the Dieppe Kite Festival.

This photo captures in one picture what we find so exciting about kiting:
* kites of all shapes, size and colour,
* line laundry, and
* wind garden
all moving in the wind.

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 3
In 2000 we were invited to attend their kite festival at the decommissioned Kai Tek airport.
As part of the pre-festival publicity the guest kitefliers were given the opportunity to fly in the stadium used for Hong Kong Rugby Sevens tournament.
Football and rugby players were the only previous users and because they value the turf we had to take our shoes off. A stadium designed to minimise wind is definitely not ideal for flying kites!
However, what an awesome experience flying our Maui dellaporta kite on turf that few football and rugby supporters have ever been on.
