His charming Australian personality, teaching skills and experience make his workshops sought after worldwide.  Catering to the needs of workshop organizers,   he has developed instructional materials, which are not limited by language.

A long time member of the AKA, Robert Brasington’s love of kite flying is evident in all that he does.  Perhaps the most likable, approachable, humble kite flyer, he is, by his very nature, a true ambassador to kiting.
