About this website

My website is intended for everyone - for those who know nothing at all about kites, kite enthusiasts or even students seeking information for projects.

You'll find galleries of my oriental kite collection, an extensive collection of photos from kite festivals we have visited and a fascinating historical timeline of the history of kites, plus much more.

For whatever reason you have visited my site, I hope you will enjoy your stay and get a better understanding and insight into this fascinating subject and the magic of kite flying.

However, be warned....kite flying can be contagious and can seriously affect your bank balance!

About me

I'm Malcolm Goodman, nicknamed "The Kiteman" by local children. I have been responsible for introducing many thousands of people to the joys of kite flying by giving kite displays, teaching kite workshops, organising kite festivals and helping to form kite clubs. In my spare time I can be found in schools, art centres etc. teaching the art of kite making.

I am now looking to find a new home for my extensive collection, for more information on this please click on read more.
