At last...after the demise of High Performance Kites (Alan Nagao) and Kite Fantasy (Robert Loera), a kite store returns to Oahu, even if only a kiosk.
Now if only the we could witness the return of the kite festivals of the late 80,s and early 90's, when famous kitemakers and fliers from all over the world showed their skills at events hosted by the above stores and their owners. Single-line, giant inflatables, power kites,fighters and tradtional kites from different countries adorned the sky and land, usually at Kapiolani, Sandy's and even Kuuloa. Stunt kite teams came and competed against 3 time world champs Team High Performance. And Hawaii was home to so many individual champions in all classes inculding then -"revolutionary" quadline kites. And an all- female team. Japanese groupies buying kites called the North Shore Radical and buying other kites designed in Hawaii. Kite buggy's at Sandy's and Kapiolani Park.
