Hi guys

I'd just like to introduce myself and also KiteRight - the UK's first kitesports charity and not for profit kite school, that works with people of all ages with physical, mental health or learning disabilities.

We are always looking for support, fundraisers, donations and also to hear any of your stories if you use kitesports to overcome a disability or challenge.

You can complete a survey about disabled kiting https://www.esurveycreator.com/s/1ccc06c

You can visit the website http://www.kiteright.org/

Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/KiteRight

Watch our launch video http://www.kiteright.org/videos/

Volunteer http://www.kiteright.org/volunteer/

Tell your story either http://www.kiteright.org/testimonials/ or http://www.kiteright.org/forums/forum/forum/

and finally watch Susi Mai our patron talk about the sport http://www.kiteright.org/2013/03/watch- ... -susi-mai/

Sorry for so many hyperlinks, but I really really am passionate about the changes ALL forms of kitesports can make to peoples lives.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

This program looks very impressive. I am so glad that somebody is pursuing this.
Congratulations on your successes, and I wish you the best for building this out.

Kiting has so much potential for experience-based therapy.
The sport isn't very difficult with new gear. I am not even sure it is an extreme sport anymore, as much as a sport that can be taken to extremes.
The confidence a person gains from simply going back and forth can be (and often is) life changing.

This past november I went through all the hoops of developing a program for high-risk youth in my area. (I already run two experiential programs already - one on a tall ship and one building wood composite SUPs.) Unfortunately, I got demolished in a snowboarding accident and taken out for the season.
Next year, it will happen though.

Keep up the awesomeness.
