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".

Well, its been a great trip - but have to head home tomorrow.

St Augustine is a great place to visit, cool laid back vibe and there are big empty beaches for flying.

Finally got to meet up with Randy and watch him in action ... dude can fly a lil' bit ya know.

We'll definitely be coming back

I wouldn't say full circle as much as another step in the journey.

The Enigma is its own kite. All modern sport kites are variations in an

evolutionary path, branches in a tree reaching. All founded from a common

trunk. You have done very well grasshopper.  Smiley
Agreed!;D

Cool Steve, will be great to see you guys. Forecast is for still for NW winds 9-13 MPH, not the best direction but then is there any good direction in that park? It's wind so we're hoping for a great turnout.

Let us know if you want us to bring extra chairs, shade, or anything that you don't carry up. Just text Rhonda or me.

While in a retrospective mood, here is the kite that started this project.



This was my favorite Exile UL.  It suffered a Charlie Brown moment one dark afternoon as the victim of a vicious parking lot light pole fixture.  The carnage of the shredded sail is much too graphic to show here.

In discussion with Ken, the only replacement option was to build a replacement.  So sad.  Once the requisite tools, supplies, and skills where acquired, it was time for templates.  It seemed logical to ask "What could this become?"

With the completion of this set, the project has come full circle.  Thanks for following along....

Another version of GF+P (grey fade plus primary).  Just imagine your favorite color.

Yes Mylar on the Exile.  Once the nose was off and the halves split it was a good way to extend the panels.

I'll miss that kite.  RIP.

Normally, I am not a fan of purple.

But both of those layouts look striking.  Smiley

Is that mylar in the Exile center?

DD,

Elliott and I had the same discussion a little while ago.  I will give my contact at Cubic Tech a call tomorrow.  If we add some color in strategic locations, we need to keep most of it in front of the wing spars so we don't have to add more nose weight.

Doug
