The busy International Kite Festival season is well under way for another year. There seems to be more events every year with at least one event every week. The week just been being a very busy one for the Peter Lynn Kites Team. Gav Mulvay attending the Otaki Festival in New Zealand. Craig Hansen attending the Rosebud Festival in Australia and myself, Simon Chisnall, at the Cha-am Festival in Thailand.

They were all successfull events.

The Cha-am International Kite Festival is held every second year, but is usually held at the the Rama VI Army Camp, this year they decided to try something different and hold it on the beach of Cha-am. The event organizers were obviously very worried about this as it had not been held there before and the beach is very small. They needn’t have worried as the beach was the perfect place to fly kites, steady winds, beautiful weather and excellent helpers, all making the Cha-am International Festival one of the top kite events in the world.

Many thanks to the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the kite flyers of Thailand that made this event such a success (see images)
