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.

Super-dooper-hyper-mega-vented PP Stunter

Here it is: the latest Peter Powell model: a super-dooper-hyper-mega-vented Stunter!

OK, I'm kidding ... shortly after I started this blog, I got an email from someone who still had an old Peter Powell of which the sail had basically deteriorated to nothing, but the frame was still ok. Whether I wanted it? Having some spares is always useful when you have a collection of vintage kites, so definitely!

And there really is no need for a vented PP Stunter: Paul told me he'd flown the Mk III in winds over 40mph, and it handled fine. So no market for a vented Stunter!
