John Lutter


Hi. My name is John Lutter. I've been involved in kiting for almost 25 great years. I've flown kites at Sea World, around cruise ships, and all over the East Coast of the US. I am a professional kite flyer that continues to fly whenever I get a chance.

Simply stated, I love kites.

Back in 2001, I was working in the internet industry in the Washington DC area and I decided to utilize my expertise in web development combined with my passion for kiteflying to create Kite Stop. Originally developed as an e-magazine (a precursor to "Blogs") I would comment on events, kites, and everything in between. My brother Mike and I would travel to kite festivals all over the east coast of the United States, maybe you've met us at Tybee Island, GA or Ocean City, MD. While we don't do as much travelling now, we are still avid kitefliers and love to get out there and fly whatever kites we can get our hands on.

I started selling kites online in November of 2002 and am happy to have been providing kites and windtoys to people all over the world!

I have made it my mission to provide you with a fun and unique destination offering high quality kites, yo-yos, windsocks and flying toys of all types. Ultimately, you have many options on where to buy your kites and skill toys, and I hope that you will consider purchasing from Kite Stop. Here are some of the reasons why I feel that you should order your kite from Kite Stop.

I am the immediate Past-President of the American Kitefliers Association.

The Kite Stop Crew

In all honesty, I wouldn't be able to do any of this without the support of my family. They happily attend the various events we are involved in, and have become experts at putting together our tent and displays.

My son Alex, can often be found manning the Titusville store when I am travelling or attending meetings. He's been going to kite festivals and has been involved in Kite Stop from the very beginning (He's the little boy in the above video holding a kite line.)
