Our Journey – Where Innovation Meets Adventure

In 1972, two ingenious minds, Ray Merry and Andrew Jones, alumni of Newcastle upon Tyne University, embarked on a quest to create a wind sculpture. In a twist of fate, their creation transformed into something extraordinary – a power kite. As if guided by destiny, they christened their invention “Flexifoil.”

With winds of creativity and passion at their backs, Ray and Andrew joined forces with the visionary Van Dort brothers, Mauritz and Theo. Mauritz, a talent from the world of Dutch textiles at Tencate, and Theo, a daring investor, brought their unique skills to the table. With this dream team in place, the world soon witnessed the ascent of Flexifoil kites, gracing fields, beaches, and expansive landscapes across Europe.

Through the sands of time, Flexifoil has evolved from a humble British kite company into a global sensation, with over half a million kites soaring across all continents.

In 2012, Sir Richard Branson, his son, Sam, along with friends and family accomplished 3 Guinness World Records kitesurfing the English Channel power by Flexifoil kites.

Unveiling the Secrets of Our Kites

Every kite that bears the Flexifoil name is a masterpiece, meticulously crafted with attention to the finest details. Quality and performance are at the heart of everything we do, ensuring that a kite bought in 1972 will still soar like one purchased today.

But our journey doesn’t end with our kites; it begins with them. We’re committed to growing the global kite community by spreading the word and encouraging people to embrace this exhilarating sport. We continuously strive to make our kites the very best in the world. Yet, there’s always room for improvement, and your feedback is invaluable. The more you share with us about what’s good, what needs improvement, and what’s simply spectacular about our products, the better they’ll become. It’s a simple equation: better kites lead to more enthusiasts, more fun, and more smiles.
