kite flying is for everybody – Vliegeren is voor iedereen

Some Kite-festivals ago, i met the founders of “Vliegeren is voor iedereen” or “Kite flying is for everybody” in English. Since that time they have become real kite-friends.


In the time i’ve known them, i came across other members of their club and every time i come across them, more members are popping up….


Vivi, the team mascot


The diversity of members ensures that they fly just about everything. One, two, three, four,… Lines… No problem, they get just everything into the air.



Preparing for candy dropping


In addition to kite flying, they also ensure that other people have a great time, they give initiations powerkite for the bigger ones and they provide teddy and candy drops for the little ones.



Me in between “Vliegeren is voor iedereen”


Recently I’ve had several times that I had the pleasure of flying kites next to them and I can say that these moments are always full of fun and adventures.





Like this, the little girl we navigated to one of our turbines.


Or our kites who find it necessary to cuddle and dance with crashes as a result.





Marjolijn, Rob and Family



To Rob, Marjolijn, Family and Team members, I’m glad I got to know you all. And I’m glad I can tell you that you are my kite friends.








Ik zie nog vele toffe ontmoetingen en avonturen tegemoet. Tot de volgende

GOG – Grumpy Old Gits

At the “Rijsbergse vlieger dagen”, we came accross a special group of old people.

GOG @ Rijsbergen – source: Their website

They cal themselves the “Grumpy old Gits”


I came in touch with them @Rijsbergen, they were wondering about my koinobori fishes. They also told me how “shocked” they where about seeing these beautiful fishes by day an when the night fell, -poof- lights on and transforming it into a beautiful night kite.


Recently one of their members asked me guidance for making his own Koinobori, i was happy to help them and i cant wait to see the real deal. This is by far one of the biggest appreciations i have gotten.
