Team Mangalore, A Group of Kite Flyers is Planning to Host International Kite Festival Soon: Check Out

Team Mangalore, a hobby group of kite flyers, is planning to organise a kite festival at the end of this month. With international kite flyers scheduled to visit Gujarat and participate in various festivals across India, Team Mangalore is exploring the possibility of reaching out to both international flyers and potential sponsors to host the event. Team Mangalore was established in 1998 by Sarvesh Rao and technical aspects are overseen by Prashanth Kumar; Dinesh Holla, skillfully executes the artistic design, and other essential details are managed by Sathish Rao, Pranesh, Giridhar Kamath, Nithin Shetty, and others.

The beaches of Mangalore offer the best flying conditions for kite enthusiasts. The last Mangalore International Kite Festival was held in 2020, and there is considerable public pressure for another kite festival.

This year, Team Mangalore is gearing up for participation in kite festivals in Qatar, Gujarat, and Telangana. The team’s repertoire includes other giant kites like Yaksahgana, Gajaraja, Rakshasa, Bhootakola, Garuda, Pushpaka Vimana, and more. The construction of these larger kites involves the use of rip-stop nylon fabric, carbon fibre, tubes and locally sourced bamboo. The team has participated in international kite festivals held at France, Italy, UK, Canada, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, Dubai, Qatar and Sri Lanka.
