Kite festival blows through Cherry Valley

(Continued)

Lynn is a very well known kite flier from New Zealand who is one of the pioneers of kite skiing (which takes place on water) and traction kiting (which involves wheels).

He has loaned the kite, which was made in 1773, to the Drachen Foundation in Seattle.

The people remodeling the attic found the kite under the floor boards. Shanken says there are initials written on it that he is trying to identify so he can learn more about the individuals who made the kite.

“I’m doing historical research,” Shaken stated. “You can write, you can draw. [Kiting] is what you make of it.”
