Carl Bragiel - "The One Man Kite Team"
Carl has been flying 3 dual line sport kites for 13 of his 16 years as a kiter. In order to perfect his show, Carl began by flying over 30 hours per week totaling close to 2000 hours in the first year alone, building his passion into an impressive and moving show. Carl was last seen at the Lincoln City 2008 Summer Festival flying 3 Shivas provided by The Kite Shoppe. Good Show Carl!
