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.

I have an Le Organic and it is a fun kite, as Krin points out a full blown trick kite. The Vortex is also a Christian design and it is a very nice kite indeed.

Knowing how hard it is to shoot and produce video with a smart phone, I'm impressed with your videos Bob! I'm not so sure that my Samsung SIII can do that any better.

Good flying and good vids coupled with nice music.   

Thanks.

Thanks for the compliment. The part that got me interested in shooting a video on the phone, is that the phone is always with me. All I have to do is leave the tripod in the car, and if the wind is good, clip the phone in, set the view and fly. Doesn't get any easier. ( or cheaper for that matter).

Its a fun kite but not for a crowded beach - they need constant monitoring - unlike a fly and stick in the sky type kite like the Ghost Delta - as an example. But OK if there are just a dozen people downwind. If the wind cranks up all of sudden they could dive HARD down left and right if you are not around like at the restroom or in the ocean on a swim break. But stable enough if you are there to monitor. They wiggle. Maybe next year I will upgrade to the real deal - Gibian product. Its a classic design.

Had a great time at BeachFest held in Mentor, Ohio over the weekend. Flew team with a bunch of great people. Very very enjoyable all in all.
The winds would occasionally drop to zero, which meant my loved B Series Pro spent some time on the sand. Dirtiest sand I've ever seen!
Now my kite is really dirty.
I'm not sure of the best way to clean it up.
What's a good and safe way to clean?

Also, I noticed the insignia strips used between the down rods and sail show black rub marks (?) which I am thinking is from the rods. Any way to remove those?

Thanks in advance for any advise/suggestions!

i have found that the astral glide(s) -all sizes and make - like to wiggle a little.....unless you have the cleanest wind possible they will dance a bit......

Update

On the Premier model and I guess? also on the Gibian model I found these three helpful hints:

1. Use a swivel at the bridle point connection as this kite likes to turn at the bridle point connection.

2. Keep the top and lower spreader bow heights - EQUIVALNET. Not 7" top/4" bottom as per directions. More stable IMO.

3. Tension the central spine - see this thread.

4. I use 50# test line. It likes 4-10 mph.

When possible buy the ORIGINAL  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

We went for a picnic on the east side of Lake George yesterday and went on 149 towards Fort Ann. Drive out that way and it's more open. You might find something that way. I see on Google Maps that the Gurney Lane Recreation Area is on the other side of 87 (the Northway).

We went to Shelving Rock, 13 miles up Buttermilk Falls Road. It turns to dirt for the last 3 miles but it's a neat place to check out. Do a search for more information.
