Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

It's funny back then I never thought I'd be able to fly in a straight line.  It's the truth too.  WE all have been there. Flying a straight line is difficult in the beginning.  More difficult in the beginning is trying to fly a square.   Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided

Looking at the video.  I remember the sky was so beautiful and the kite colors made it feel like I was part of it all... I believe I still do.  Flying my kite makes me part of the whole aura of the moment.  The sky, wind, flow of the kite and the music.
Sort of like dancing.  Partner's creating a feeling of togetherness that is transcended by the rhythm of the music.

I think we all have this romantic relationship with the sport of kiting.   Cool Cool

I was on the fence about the colors!  I played around with quite a few variations.  I obviously settled on this one, and am pleased with how it turned out.  I am anxious to see it in the sun. 

Glad you like it, and thanks for the compliment.

An unusual color combination that shouldn't work, but does!

Nicely done sir.  Smiley

Several years ago, I documented my B'zar 2011 build... quite extensively.  One of the choices I made then was to alter the nose of the kite.  That process resulted in a shorter leading edge (sail and frame) and caused unknown alterations to how the kite was intended to fly.  Now, a few years later, I have secretly completed a second B'zar that has not been altered from the original 2011 plans.  Tomorrow I will put the bridle on and then I will begin the wait for a sunny day here in Seattle in which I can take them out and compare.  Regardless, here is the new sail all framed up.

I just found out about the Donations Button.  Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Never really focused on the term till today..  Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided  I then wondered if others were aware of how easy it is to make a donation...   Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed   Easier for me good for the site..  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Made a donation probably not my last either I appreciate this web site and those who interact on it.  Just wish I'd known about the Donation Button sooner... So easy... Thanks to those who keep things nice and neat around here.

Here's hoping others hit that Donation Button as well.   Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool
On Public Classical Radio here in Michigan, they have challenges for fund raising.  I was surprised to find out one didn't need a Pay Pal account either... again Thanks...

100 donations at $50-$100 bucks is a lot of quick cash...   Grin Grin Grin Grin

Just in case you didn't know Jorgen builds a great kite.

Really nice  Cool

+1 on that!

I have heard that "not one stick was out of place" and "gaps and spacings were mm perfect" and I thought now THAT is craftsmanship. I've been all over my Seven and it's all true. Even with all the pinstriping, nothing is out of place.

Just have to save for the matching SUL....
