Facebook and social media are great for sharing pictures and videos of kites. Sometimes a video or photo goes viral, and people become enthralled by an exotic kite and call to see how can they get one. Unfortunately, many of the kites you see online are custom made or are one-of-a-kind works of art... That is what makes them special.
Every once in awhile, I ask myself why I sell kites. There are hundreds of businesses out there that I could be running, and probably a few that could be much more lucrative. But then I reflect on some of the emails I've received over the years.
When I received an email from the Region 4 Director of AKA trying to find available stunt kite pilots in the Orlando area to fly in a lagoon show at Sea World, little did I know what I was getting into. This was a dream opportunity. How often do you get a chance to fly kites AND get paid for it.
