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".

Get yourself some of this, spray it on and it should be good to go.

I used this on some old Sky Tigers that were very porous and it really helped.

Bill, love the GWTW colors. Looks great. For me the purple wing tips are the better look but they all look great.

I would suggest you turn the project inside out to apply any surface cure, that will help a little with both UV and abrasion.

When the wind is too high for balloons, we fly kites.

Andy Wilson, Bethanie Wilson, Todd Copeland, Dave Costello, Bambi and me.

This is the newer Google instead of Picasa website.

Since you already built it, you might as well lurk around a sailboat shop and ask what they might recommend to reseal a sail..... Then ask if they know of a sail loft that might have scraps you could get off them (sometimes handed free sometimes cheap price, or maybe you can by some new from them)... The sail lofts martial is certain to work...

Any time I have ever been able to do one the camera is never on Huh Cheesy

I have a few of norms straps and like them a lot. I like the longer straps but that is just a personal preference. They are soft and sand rinses off of them pretty easy.

I've been able to do one of these Doubles... but have been freaked out by actually pulling off the first that couldn't get it together to even try the second. I will be working on this... it took me how long to complete the first challenge ?   Roll Eyes


I challenged Jorge Gouverneur to do the "Double AVFFF". He completed it and posted his video on You Tube. I mailed him the Flight Straps he won. He then said he was going to do the "Triple AVFFF and here it is. This guy is something else. He did them flying a French Connection UL, no less.
