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".

Okay, now I can only see Rerlex...but that's not a my brain changes it to Relax  Undecided

I think I like that as a name.  I'm going to call it the Rev Relax from now on!

Lucky you!  V. nice Professor Waldof snowflake.  I always watch Craigslist for vintage kites but have never seen a listing as fetching as your lot.   

Sometimes I see Waldof kites on ebay but I don't know anything about them.  Who was Prof. Waldof/Waldorf anyway?  He seems to have made a lot of kites....

Fly on!

I have to be honest... I hate that logo.... I keep reading it as Rerlex....bit too swoopy to actually pull that F in in my eye...

The  lower "horizontal" mark for an F does not go backwards from the vertical line....

Nothing like the azure blue of winter sky to brighten up a cold winter day.

The kite was in a bundle on our local Craigslist that included some Sun Oaks, a Vertical Visuals Malay, this Professor Waldof box;

numerous home made Tyvek constructs, some GFAK deltas and misc. bits and pieces. Unfortunately, there was notable fabric damage to many from poor storage conditions.

My first also.  It flew in really strong wind but steered like a tanker!  My next was a Revolution Backtracker.  Boy do I know how to pick em!


not my pic, but my kite was the same

It was a red Skynasaur F-36 in June 1989. I had no success with flying it and was ready to burn the darn thing until I met some more experienced fliers who gave me some advice about kites and flying location. I bought a copy of the TOTL 3/4 Hawaiian and found a better place to fly at and the rest was history and quite a few kites.   Wink

Great find!  Looks beautiful in your blue skies.

What other beauties were in the 'group' you picked up?

Can't wait to see more pics!

The Bird of Prey 18 glider kites for Tom White and Phil Burks have reached their new happy homes.  The following is one of the pictures that Tom White sent me, with him having fun with his new little glider kite.  Both of us feel this little gem performs just like a smaller version of the Bird of Prey 36.

Yours in kiting,
