David McIntyre hails from Mitchell,Ontario. His interest in kiting started when he was in his early teenage years, making his own kites with wood, plastic garbage bags, and his mother’s old stockings. He made diamond, double diamond, and box kites. His interests then changed.
About nine years ago, while at a beach on Lake Huron, David’s interest in kites was restored when he met a man flying his big kites. Upon talking to him, he passed along valuable information about kiting.
David made a few purchases of some small inflatable kites and was hooked. He has since been purchasing bigger and then larger inflatable kites.
David has attended many club flies and some kite festivals in Canada and the USA. On attending these he has learned more and has met a lot of kiters from around the world, some of which have become close friends. He always tries to promote kiting to the public, and he finds kiting very relaxing and enjoyable.
