The men and women behind it all. These people are at the cutting edge of the design and manufacture of quality sports kites. Not a month goes by without some kind of innovation in the world of kite making. Many of these people are very approachable and happy to converse with their adoring public. Be warned if you wish to join their ranks though, it's said that noone ever got rich designing kites.
