Hi, I’m Guy

Some of my earliest recollections of kite flying are of learning to a first generation Peter Powell two line stunt kite which I still own.

After numerous attempts both successful and unsuccessful to make my own kites as a young boy, I all but gave up kite flying during his teenage years

But following forays in to model railways, radio controlled aircraft and submarines, I returned to kite design and construction in 2006, and now fly with my wife and daughter as the Ursus Volans and with and as a member of the Brighton Kite Flyers.

Whilst specialising in soft and inflatable kites, we have a range of hand built soft and sticked kites that can be flown in winds upwards of 0 mph. Unlike many display teams we only own a handful of commercial kites, our collection is made up predominantly of kites of own design and construction and aren’t available straight from the catalogue (other than our own).
