Leong Chee Wan better known as CEEWAN in the kiting community had been BIG into kites since 1993. Its was a re-discovery into kites after stumbling into a collegue who was flying modern manuverable kites and had not looked back since. Over the years he had became well known in the international kiting community especially the USA. He is known for his works on designing kite platforms (as opposed to decorating a kite). His most successful designs are the "Pointer" and "Plutz" kites which are now sold under licence in the USA. Back in Malaysia he is also known for his collection of rare, stunning, designer kites from all over the world.
The Pointer kite is a massive 20 feet tall framed kite. This is arguably the biggest mass produced framed-kite in the market. The graphics on the kite comes in many variety most recognisable are the Geo Pointers and the Bonito Pointers.
Ceewan's Pointers are a result of his on going research in bridle-less kites. This kite platform is designed without the use of bridles also known as a single-point kite, of which, traditionally impossible to be made to fly steadily. This kite is designed to be novice friendly and it can be flown in the lightest winds to strong winds with very little pull. There are other amazing kites which are built in this manner.
The Plutz kite is an indoor "zero-wind" kite. This is a new generation kite is engineered to fly efficiently and built very light with hi-tech carbon fiber and lightweight Polyester. This kite is specifically designed to be flown in absolutely NO wind. Its born from the need to fly kites when winds are low or next to nothing. The Plutz kites had been making the headlines in the international kite scene for the past years. Designed and built in various sizes the most recognisable Plutz kites are the Prism Zero G, the Mega Plutz 2013, POP-Art Plutz and the Plutz 3.
His latest foray into single point kites led to the production of Albee the bird. Its has a massive 20 feet wingspan Albatross kite (hence the name Albee) which self balances in flight without any bridles. Years of testing different variations was finally achieved when the last iteration flew just right.
