Tell this guy to go fly kites – he'll gladly do it!

The 10m diameter spike bol which Lau flew at the Adelaide Kite Festival. A bol is a large, circular parachute, modified so it spins in one direction.

After 15 years of working for a local broadcasting station behind cameras, Danny Lau decided it was time to free himself from the shackles of a full-time job, and pursue a life-long passion. Lau decided to go fly a kite instead. And he has continued doing so for the last 13 years.

Fondly called “Danny Kiteman” by friends and the kite-flying fraternity, 52-year-old Lau decided to make his hobby much more a part of his life because it brought him so much joy.
