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.

I know this question has been asked repeatedly, I've read most of the posts.
I've recently been introduced to dual line kiting and within minutes was hooked! Since then I've been flying a seahawk form kittyhawk kites, was a gift for a roommate from his grandparents, to my luck he left it behind and now I'm starting a new hobby.
Unfortunately this thing needs a good wind to stay up, and even then trying any tricks sends it falling like a rock.
Now I'm looking at some entry level freestyle kites, several have curb appeal but I want to hear from experienced flyers, not sales pitches. What would you recommend?
Jorge the wind speed was broken up. There are barriers behind me that cause a shift. It was high most of the day. It started to go down to about 5mph I'd guess. Again my wind out of the North is bad unless I go to the end of the grass onto the sand... I love the southerly wind... A widow Maker Ul can fly nicely in 2 mph wind like that... Also a Solus std can fly in low wind like that.. I do mean std. The Ul you'd expect...
Leg Cramps... Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I have been hitting the water more. Bananas sound good also. The "Tums" going to give em' a whirl... I am also not going to try and stand on my leg when it cramps... Some morning's they like to sing a bit and I jump up trying to stand up... Not fun...
