WELCOME TO FORTUNA FOUND
We Fly to Connect. We Fly to Discover. We Fly to Explore
It is through kite flying that we find we are able to connect with people from all walks of life, all races, all cultures, all ages. Taking a kite with us where ever we go has allowed us to discover new places, new ways of moving, and new ways of looking at our world. The simple act of kite flying encourages us to explore new opportunities, to try new things, to be creative, to wonder what is around the corner. We Fly.
This section is a part of the 'Playground Space' here on Fortuna Found. It will serve as a free resource to learn more about various aspects of kites, kite design, kite making, flying, and more. These videos come from everyone of all levels of experience. From the master with decades under their belt, to the brand new person sharing a new tip or trick that they learned, there is something here FOR everyone BY everyone. There may be topics or tips that are repeated from different presenters, giving you different perspectives on how to achieve a goal.
Stay connected to this page (and subscribe on the Fortuna Found Youtube Channel) to see how this resource grows.
whats with the name?
I get asked this question a lot. What does 'Fortuna Found' mean and what does it have to do with kites? The name comes from the Latin saying 'audentes Fortuna adiuvat' or Fortune favors the bold. Fortuna was the goddess of luck, or how I like to see it.. .opportunity. Good things, results, success, experiences, don't come just out of pure luck, they come from putting yourself out there and trying. You can't win the lottery if you never buy a lottery ticket.
I have always believed in opportunity, not luck, and that I have found myself at a point in my life where I can share the amazing things that are happening, and the knowledge around me. I have found my own 'luck'... my own opportunities... my own Fortuna, and I want to help others do the same. I am, we are, Fortuna Found.
