Find out more about Paul.
Paul started flying 2 line kites in 1989, firstly with the Aviators and subsequently with the Blast. He was lucky enough to go represent the UK at the World Cup in Japan in 1992. In the early 1990's he was a driving force behind STACK (Sport Team and Competitive Kiting) at one point as secretary and subsequently as Treasurer and wrote the first STACK Constitution.

Paul was one of the founders of the International Rule Book Committee and a driving force behind creating the first global kiting rule book. Paul, occasionally flys 2 line kites with The Flying Squad but now mainly flys single line kites.

He is however more often seen at kite festivals talking.  His knowledge of kites, kiteflyers and enthusiasm for kiteflying has led him to being one of the most well know commentators at kite festivals around the UK and at various events around the world.  He has commentated at kite festivals in America, Holland, New Zealand and Malaysia.  He prides himself on not using jargon and ensures that the public attending a festival end up really understanding what is going on.

When Paul is not at kite festivals he does something involving investments.  Other passions include scuba diving, gadgets and photography.

In February 2008 Paul found out that he had bowel cancer.  To find out more look at his blog.
