Gomberg Kite Productions and G-Kites is now Closed.
Were a bit ahead of our plan to retire at the end of 2020. Gomberg Kites has made arrangements to transfer all remaining inventory to an Oregon kite retail store. Our retirement sale is over. We have nothing left!
No we’re not holding anything back that we’ll sell you if you ask nicely. We really have nothing left. ?? Sorry for the lack of warning. Sorry if you waited too long.
We incorporated in 1987. It has been a remarkable 33 years. We have traveled the world, visited 40 countries, and attended a thousand festivals. We have brought the newest and most interesting kite designs to the market. We’ve flown for motion pictures, Walt Disney, the Super Bowl, and the London Millennium Celebration. We unveiled our first web page in 1996, published 600 weekly updates of news and travel, wrote three books, and opened three kite stores (which we gave to our managers five years ago). We were president of the AKA an unprecedented ten times and led the Kite Trade Association three terms. We have been inducted into the Kite Hall of Fame (next to Ben Franklin and the Wright Brothers!) and were presented the lifetime achievement Edeiken Award – twice (the second time we declined it which has never been done before or since). We’ve spent a lifetime spreading the joys of kiting, kite knowledge, and kite friendships.
After 33 great years – and after our best year ever - we are ready for new adventures.
We value each of you and our long association and friendship. Thanks so much for being part of our lives and making our business something special. Keep flying! Keep smiling up at the sky. And keep spreading the joy.
On the pages that follow, we hope to share with you the excitement that kiting offers on a global scale.
GKPI has specialized in big Show Kites, Inflatables, Tails, and Line Laundry. For three decades, we travled the kite world and reported our adventures in Weekly Updates. We published three books that are now online here.

Finally,we tell you a little more about ourselves and our interests in the Personal Page.
The history, art, technology, sport, and industry of kiting is wonderfully diverse. And wherever you turn, there is more fun to be found.
