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".

The following link provides access to my folder with the plans for the Viper 36M.  If you choose to download the plans, please made a contribution to this great forum! 

Viper 36M Plans

To show you how the Viper 36M performs, the following link provides access to a video of me flying the Viper 36M at my local indoor venue.  During the filming, the HVAC system was on, which was gently pushing the air downward.   The Viper 36M cut through this downward air without a problem.

Viper 36M Video

I will be attending the Sky Art Kite Festival at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ on Saturday May 27, 2017.  I also will be attending the Wildwood International Kite Festival in Wildwood, NJ on Monday May 29, 2017 for the Indoor Competition, where I will be flying my Viper 36M.  If you can make either of these events, it would be great to see you there.

For those of us living in the USA, may you and your family have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Yours in kiting,

Look for a used Sea Devil Light (3PT), and get an extra set of 5PT lower spreaders. You should be able to find one for the price of a new Zephyr.

Being in my backyard I do have these comments:

1. There is also a festival in Long Branch, NJ in April but the weather has been awful in both annual events. So did not attend.
2. There is just not any competitors for Wildwood. Diminishing through the years. I tried for the first time Virtual Freestyle so will continue with this event.
3. That is a great field Kurtis has picked. If the winds are SE,SW,S or NE or N its almost beach winds. Incredible park - NEW Overpeck Park. I consider it EQUAL to Liberty State Park minus the NY skyline backdrop. Just talking field/wind. Locals actiually call it the KITE FIELD.
4. LBI is kicking ass - just hope for good weather in October. Last year it was a KILLER.
5. Asbury Park, NJ tried its first annual kite event but it was washed out two weeks ago. Sixth Avenue Beach.
6. There is also Seaside Park, NJ Wednesday night flies ... still need to attend one of these ...
7. Belmar, NJ also has an event but its tough if the winds are WEST. There was only one kite flying for half the event. It was a Lam Hoac Tattoo dual by the water's edge (Really!) ... low winds and pure west. It was tough for SLK's and heavier dual line kites. However there was no top rev flyers that attended last year.

Thankfully, Kurtis Jones has organized a predominantly sport kite event in north Jersey this weekend. No competition, but lots of demos. Looks like he's trying to provide an alternative to Wildwood.
Makes a lot of sense - demos are better for spectators and anyways ... and there are many fliers who prefer not to compete, but can be persuaded to fly a demo.

Ski poles?!?! That's hilarious. I give the guy A for effort!

Where can I get a bridle for $12?. Also is there anywhere stateside to get the $15 "non ski pole" handles?
