By noon, the wind of change that all the flyers were looking for finally came, the long awaited south westerly wind. It was promisingly strong and soon the sky was sprinkled with all sorts of colour and shape. What a sight to behold.

Although they did rise to 20m, their joy was momentary. They soon came crashing down. I wondered if it was due to aerodynamic issues, wind speed or an undersized pilot kite as these giants must have been quite a load to lift. Even when they decided to do a single whale that failed too. Felt sorry for them. Those blue whales could have been so impressive and the waiting Bintulu crowd would have been so pleased.

Kite flying is his love, life and the platform for his globetrotting lifestyle. By the look of the international show kite calendar, Mr Nasri would be on a perpetual world tour. Living up to his name, The Layang King! We thanked him for the invaluable information he shared on the ins and outs of kite flying and the ups and downs of a ‘professional’ kite flyer.

With Nasri the Layang King

While some flyers might get free holidays from sponsorships, 2 flyers from China and New Zealand who were also big time kite producers participated to get business through the orders they received from fellow flyers. How nice to mix fun and business! Come, let us go fly a kite.
