BOCA RATON, Fla. — When Randy Lowe flies, he knows bigger is better. “I have become known as the guy who likes to fly the biggest kites,” he says. His largest is an inflated cobra that stretches over 150 feet.
In just a couple of years, the retired Boston junior high school math teacher has become a beach sensation here. A 45-foot air-filled kite of a whale or teddy bear suddenly floating over sunbathers at the Boca Raton Resort & Club quickly gets people out of their chairs.
