Is Peter Lynn himself still involved?

Yes, to a certain extent. Peter Lynn himself is still focussed on coming up with breakthrough ideas in the field of traction kiting. So whenever he may have developed a totally new concept related to the traction kites field he will share it with Peter Lynn Kitesports and let us explore its potential.

When I Google Peter Lynn, I also find Peter Lynn Kites Ltd in New Zealand?

Yes that’s right and that might be confusing. They own a licence for the single line kites. Furthermore they are distributing Peter Lynn traction kites, bought from Peter Lynn Kitesports, in the NZ market. They are not designing traction kites for commercial purposes by themselves.
