The Kite : "The kite is an exceptional activity because it is accessible to all and 100% ecological" Alain Girad, French Federation of Free Flight.
Born approximately 2500 years ago in China, the kite quickly became a tradition in Asia. It was used for strategic purposes during the war, for fishing, and later for scientific research and transportation. From a leisure activity, it became a sport and a competition.
With the kite, all our tensions fly away. According to several institutes, practicing this activity would be a good way to relax and reduce stress. Moreover, the realization of kites is an effective way to develop its creativity.
Jean-Baptiste GIROD: Passionate about everything that flies since forever, I started by embracing model aircraft, aviation and finally the role of animator in a kite where my interest in this activity was born. Vice world champion of kite fighting in 2009, I master perfectly the art of fighting but also acrobatics and all kinds of monowires.
Festi'Vol allows me to share my experience and my passion with you. Let yourself be immersed in your childhood dreams.
Lucien TRECOURT: I have been leading my studies and my passion for kite flying at the same time. I seized the opportunity to train for 5 consecutive years with a kite flyer known for his handling of the monofilament kite. At the end of my university studies, it was obvious for me to join Festi'vol, with whom I have worked since its creation.
Free of charge.
From Monday 4 to Friday 8 July 2022 between 10 am and 6 pm.
