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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to:

Lam, i do not have a boss? not certain what you are referring to.....I just see you in here pushing your kites and not making any effort to help out the forum.   Even people who use the Swap Meet offer to pay some money towards the forum.
Obviously your kites are pricey, this would not be much to ask..

yes, I am a moderator here, but do not - nor have i ever - worked for Steve or any iteration of GWTW.  This posting is my request to help out the forum that you use and was not endorsed by Steve at all - this is my own choice ot post this.

Tell your boss pay me back the money before I can think working with you guy. I am here to show people my idea worth more money than you think. If you don't like me in here than just tell me. I don't have a problem with that. making money in is a joke, my kite to expensive. People in here are looking for good deal, Never think I making money in here.

Lam, how come you have not just ponied up and become a sponsor to the forum yet?    you seem to get a lot of business through here.....and probably cheaper than selling at a discount to a store too.....

the Hypar: I know that Karl Longbottom and Martin were working on getting this shape to fly in new materials for years and the Vietnamese moon and the Pekkukan kite were design foundations...

Thanks Tom for posting the MNM. Magic New Moon Kite. NOT NMN Smiley Thanks. Vietnamese Moon kite was made hundred of year ago. I don't where  Martin Lester's hypar got the shape from. Anyway. Kite 3 meter wide almost one meter tall and fly like a dream. single line tricking like No other the kite can do. If anyone like one please talk to Andy from Ocean shore Kites store or Roger from Show Stopper Kites.

Have a great day.

Replacing the noise is actually a relatively easy fix.
Nose s used to all be 2" seat belt webbing folded over (and were quite tough) but some builders have gone to lighter materials which might need to be replaced more often.
Some kites did have a strip of kevlar inside the nose which was to stop the spine from pushing out.... But that has less to do with the external wear...

What kite?

Just for peace of mind, I was curious what you do once your nose wears out?  The one on the kite that is.

I have a kite that has been teaching me more than I have been training it and I hope to have it for many years to come, but it seems that the weak link in the chain is the nose.   Soooo, I was curious to know if this can be sent off for a new schnozzola once it has worn out or is this an easy home fix?  I've also read that the noses are made out of Kevlar?  Is that true?  Looks like some basic material to me that is seared on the left and right to create hard angles for rigidity and crash impact?
