A blog detailing our collection of Peter Powell kites, and chronicling our flying of these kites. Plus a bit of PP kite history thrown in. Our collection to date can be seen here. I am keen to expand the collection, so if you have an old Peter Powell kite, whether made in the UK or the US, gathering dust and looking for a new home, why not get in touch? Depending on the kite (does it bring something new or different to my collection?), its condition (is it flyable? how much TLC does it need?), and the price you ask (+ shipping if from outside the UK), we may well be able to do a deal.

A Field of Poppies!

Last year, Mark and Paul created a special PP kite in support of the annual Poppy Appeal, and of course we had to have one.


Twisted Bridle, our sister pair within the L-katz team, got two of these 'Poppy Powells', and we had a lot of fun flying both their kites:


Obviously, we now had to get a second one as well!


And that means we can now fly three or four 'Poppy Powells' together!




Lisa, from Twisted Bridle, made a set of four green satin tails, with the aim of extending the wind rage a bit (as they're lighter than the standard plastic tube tails).


Anyone wanting to join our Field of Poppies, they can be ordered directly from Peter Powell.
