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".

Sandbanks in Dorset, UK, on a cold February day.

Wind howling off the sea.

Heavy rain showers.

I was the only one on the beach.

I wonder why?

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear

when we spoke of many kite related subtleties.

I have a Paradox which was modified by the late Brian Todd

to include telescoping standoffs. The TrickTail also had them

and the MEFM had dynamically tensioned standoffs. I can

understand the MEFM, but don't really see the need for telescoping

standoffs. Thought we might start an old-fashioned discussion

on the subject.

Looks Fun Paul. Can't wait to try her out the next time your down San Diego way. Maybe I can make up to Kite Party this year and we can trade a few models for a bit.

Spent weekend at bayhouse with Son and Father.  Fishing, crabbing, crawfish boil, 180' frozen pipe replace on pier, general lazing around.  Put up an original Air Affairs Sutton 30 with Gomberg spiky tail  Friday afternoon... down at dusk, back up Saturday after breakfast, ditto in Sunday.  24+ hours in the sky with nary an issue. That's why I have 15/30(x3)/60/125(x2)/250 's in my bag.

I still need to sort out the adjustable leech line (trying to sort out how to attach the bungie to the spine), trim up the wingtips a bit and she'll be ready to go.

If you're still wondering about the bungee-leechline setup, try tying the bungee with an overhand knot above the center T, after tying a knot at both ends of it, and connecting the leechline with a larks-head above the end knot. For tension, when the kite is fully assembled, pull the larks-head up the bungee cord.

I don't know of any videos, which is a shame. Shane was quite a guy.
