Bernd Halbeck (Germany)
Kites really can make you fly! Kiter Bernd Halbeck took his first ever plane flight in 2011 to the Cape Town International Kite Festival. This was a great experience, sparking a love for South Africa and thirst for travel. He has subsequently returned to Cape Town twice.
Bernd works as an aircraft manufacturer and lives in Nordenham. In his spare time he goes to kite festivals all over Europe, including Germany, Holland and Denmark. Bernd’s passion is kite aerial photography (KAP) and he also flies single-line inflatable kites. He says kiting is more than a hobby, it’s a way of life.
