can’t relax? go fly a kite…like this guy…


The gentleman flying these kites, is from Canada.  His name is Ray Bethell and he is a World Champion and World Record Holder of flying multiple kites.  He comes to the Washington State International Kite Festival every year.

He generally flies the kites without his shirt, hence the brown leathery skin.  He is also deaf and when he flies the crowd holds up their hands instead of giving him applause.

Two kites are flown with his hands and the other is tied to his waist.  And of course the music is glorious.

Watch until the end so you can see the last kite land………..and hey……………………relax!  You’re going to LOVE this!

    My wife and I with our two daughters used to go down to Astoria Oregon every spring. The beach area was just full of folks flying kites. I went to the kite store (one of many) and bought a small kite. The man that owned the store was very helpful and excited for us. I came back after a day of kite flying and bought my daughters a kite also. This is one memory that even is still fresh in my thoughts.


    1. LOVE those kind of memories! I remember flying a kite with my son and thought about how such a simple thing could make someone so happy! We loved it! I haven’t done it in a while but this man on the video made me want to run out and get one! 🙂
