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 Bay Area Sport Kite League is putting on a casual Learn to Fly a Sport Kite workshop/clinic on Saturday Feb. 21, 2015 at Cesar Chavez Park at the Berkeley Marina (San Francisco Bay Area, CA, just to make it explicit).  This is the same location that the Berkeley Kite Festival is held.  If you are in the area, feel free to drop by any time between 11am and 4pm. 
For anyone curious about sport kites and who maybe doesn't have a kite of their own yet, this will be a great opportunity to see what sport kiting is all about and try it out.  For those of you who have a kite or are flying, this will be a great opportunity to pick up some tips from the local experienced fliers and experts, or just to fly with others.  Who knows, if there are enough people interested, some spontaneous team flying could occur.

I love the warm color combos. Nice Photoshop job there.

Thanks Hal  Smiley

I was waiting for the past 3 weeks for a windy enough night to fly my clear kite and today was the night  Smiley (the material is a bit heavy and requires a good 10-15 mph wind to fly.)

Managed to get this one with the dark sky.  Shocked The wind was dying.  Sad When the kite was about 15 feet I took the picture with my flash on  Smiley

A couple of photos with the typical Sunset sky colors

I started building a new Organic UL for myself this time! The UL of the previous pair I built went to a friend & the Std. stayed with me! I wanted to change the sail colors a bit ...just to make it different from the previous build. It should be a stunner, IMO. I wasn't sure I was thrilled with the color combo but it's growing on me the more I see it.

Here's a 'Photoshop' produced rendition of what it should look close to, when I'm finished building it (the kite is far from being done at the moment):

And ...Here's my current progress. The panels for the other side are all cut except for 2. No taping yet. We're in a busy season at work & I'm traveling a lot so it'll be a little while before it's finished.

Oh yeah ....and I promise to get that upper spreader right on this build!  Cheesy Or least closer to where it's supposed to be!  Wink

The only issue I've had with that setup is the occasional section of flying line looping itself around that knot/lark's head junction during slack line time.  Instant uneven line lengths  Huh 

And I thought I was the only one that happened to!  Wink

Great job Steve! That color combo is really nice! I'm going to be building another Monster myself ...and this time keep it at the designer's original size instead of the 94%er I previously built! The one I built is a fun kite but a little to squirrelly. I'm still planning on tweaking the bridle when I have time to hopefully tame it down a bit but I expect the full size monster might resolve that issue as well.
One thing is certain with the 94%er I built. It loves to roll up ...and it does a yo-fade like no there kite I've ever flown. It practically gives them away!

Looking forward to some flying videos of yours to inspire me to start that project!  Wink
