About Us

We have Peter Lynn and Simon Chisnall designing our show kites in New Zealand, but we also produce the kites for other designers from around the world Jan O’Loughlin from Australia, Volker Hoberg, Meik Schlenger and Andreas Fischbacher from Germany, Claudio Capelli from Italy and John and Irene Tan from Singapore.

We also make special custom designs for many customers around the world. One of the most famous was a 18 meter long dragon ‘Toothless’ for 20th Century Fox. We flew this kite in different locations around the US, and towed it behind a boat in England down the Thames and through the Tower bridge.
