  2. Standing Room Only – Henk Jordaan – Drayton Callison

    It was standing room only. Surrounded by kites from artists around the world, the crowd filled the seats of The Studio@620 in St. Petersburg, Florida to hear artist Enrique Cay speak of his art and experience with the giant kites of Guatemala.

  3. From the Forgotten Bookshelf: Otto Piene’s More Sky – Henk Jordaan – Scott Skinner

  6. Interview with Malcolm Goodman – Henk Jordaan – Scott Skinner

    Can you tell us how long you’ve been involved in kite flying and about your life in England before kites? My attraction to wind and flight began early in childhood. Like many of us, I recall making and flying brown paper diamond kites with my father, but the pastime did not grab me and I put it aside, as in …

  7. World Altitude Record – Henk Jordaan – Bob Moore

    On September 23rd, 2014, four Australian kite enthusiasts flew a kite to a claimed 16,038 feet above the launch point at an airfield on a 50,000-acre sheep farm called Cable Downs, in Western NSW, Australia.
