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".

Very sad to hear this and we'll miss his contributions to the kiting world and the forums in particular.

Andre's kites were interesting and innovative, we need more people like him.

Oh, man... I'm sad to hear that. I never met him in person, but we emailed a bunch. He even offered to send me one of his Spectre XUL kites, but I couldn't justify the cost. Just a really nice person...  Embarrassed

I did not know him.

But I did see the beauty he brought to the kiting world.

I just learned that one of our forum member's, Andre Eibel (ae on this Forum), recently past away.  Andre was a great inspiration to me regarding the use of Cuben fabric.  Andre's passion were speed kites.  The following provides a link to a tribute prepared by one of his close friends.

The following provides a link to Andre's Facebook page with pictures of all of his great kites.

My favorite design of Andre's is his Colibri XL.  We will miss you Andre.  God speed my friend.

+1 on the Jaco/FSD shown above. You need to force them over the rod. This is perfectly normal. They stretch easily when fitting 'm on the rod but when in place they wont slide.

APA is too bulky IMHO when using a light rod like a 2pt.

I've just picked up a used SF 2.5 vented which has had the turbo beads removed and wondered if someone could give me the standard bridle measurements so I can check everything is OK.

I was at my computer for the last half hour watching the bids rise (cursing everyone for the early bids) I actually never put a bid on it until the last few seconds so I wouldn't raise the price on myself. And in the final seconds I made the bid that would count and ended up winning. Spent more than I wanted too, but I have also never seen one for sale before, so I'm happy that I won.

The stack is a real head turner. I flew it right along side a popular board walk in Hampton nh in these pics, I had a crowd both on the beach and on the boardwalk. I have more fun when other people enjoy my flying as much as I do!
