Tell us a little bit about yourself:  I am Ron berkhout from The Netherlands. Had my moment of fame in the 90’s with my Hot Pepper kites at Invento HQ. I am planning to come back with a new Hot Pepper kite. I sold my complete kite collection to buy, trade and collect all pre 2000 Prism stunt kites. I love to help other collectors in making EU/USA trade deals.
