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".

 Sad Sad, just logged in to add to this initial post when I see that Steve has passed...
I wanted to say, it seemed, somehow incomplete...
Not much more to say here, just an overwhelming sadness, such a fine gentleman! You will be missed Steve...
Rest In Peace...

I`m sure Steve`s wit and sense of humor are going strong. He had me in stitches during our email correspondence re this Enigma....

Have had a Very Strong interest in Steve's Amazing kites for 3 or so years.
Finally was able to get an Enigma, thanks to the kindness of an Awsome kiter friend.
Then Steve posted the news.   Huh.    I Have not met him in person but reached out and he
was able to respond.  Even though he was feeling really bad.  Everyone that talks about Steve
says how kind and wonderful he is. 
I Lots a BUNCH of friends to Cancer last year.  My Hunny went through 8 months of intense Chemo
last year and just made it.  She is Blessed.  I want Steve to feel as calm and pain free through this
chapter of his life.  I feel a Deep sadness and am having trouble shaking it.  I have Faith and pray for Steve !
I am saying a lot and should stop now.  Steve.   Bless You and May Angels guide You on your Journey Brother!
You impacted a bunch of people I know this for sure.  Thank you for You!  Smiley

I wish that I had met Steve Tapp in person, flown kites with him on a beach with those perfect Lab Grade winds. Talked kites, hung out and got to know him better. I so enjoyed our emails sent back & forth, as he developed and perfected the Enigma. I would've liked to watch him layout, sew, build and tweak his kites, there would be so much to learn. He really is an outstanding kite craftsman. I hope that he is comfortable and able to share his time with his family. He will be missed.

Flew for the 1st time today. Not sure what all the fuss is about. It only took an hour and a half hour to nail down 3 tricks. Could be the Widow ng is exceptional. I'm not sure what they're called. I named them nosedive left, nosedive center and nosedive right  Cool Man was it fun and I even learned how to zen out while unsnarling kite lines.


Thank you for that, I've been needing a smile!

It does get better, and rather quickly. Keep at it!
