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".

Think I got the bridal figure out yesterday so no need to try getting pictures up, but if you do take some measurements I would love to double check to what I have.
Got to get out and so far she Flys well. So much more precision than the foils I have. Hoping to get more hours in today so I get comfortable enough to take out my zephyr and alien soon.

Totally hooked 😃

I can not believe what I saw.  Shocked.  It's my home town.  Eastern Market  was just down there last week.  Hart Plaza you guys knocked it out.  The "New" Murals are looking Great but you guys really painted the place.           
                Cool    THIS VIDEO DESERVES 5000 HITS !!!!  Cool

             I told you Brett you are Dangerous with a capital "D".
I have often thought about flying down by the river in front of the GM bldg. But the view from Hart Plaza is great...

A Prism Zephyr just hit the Swap Meet. I'd give it serious consideration.

I believe Amazon only one dealer selling revs. A 1.5 Rev is a 1.5 Rev no matter if it is a 1.5 exp 1.5sle, 1.5b, 1.5nym, 1.5 pro or 1.5 masterpiece. Standard, mid vent, vented or extra vent. They all use the same frame size.
The $200 can be used for Christmas presents on black Monday there, that you have to spend anyway, so you'll basically still have $200 towards the kite no matter where you buy it. And you can look for the best deals at different shops or even here at the swap meet area.

The most useful skills from kite flying are being able to fly a kite one handed (a dual line using a quad handle), and looking somewhere else while flying it (putting the board on your feet...). I found that the board is much more stable than I expected once you get a little speed. I find two more benefits in taking courses apart from the explanations: they give you the right kite and board for the conditions, and they provide safety... I took me three lessons to get out of the water.
The feeling is great, I only try to navigate to where I want to go, very little jumping yet (but I'm 55...).

Thanks for the reply, I too find the lessons quite expensive, they are probably definitely needed but why the high cost?

I am going to bug an inexpensive bar and give it a try.
