Beautiful day in Upstate NY yesterday. Very light wind between 0 and maybe 3 or 4 mph, maybe less. My wife and I went to the park so that I could fly the BoP 36. In light wind, it climbs easily and hangs there. When the wind dies down (which it did a lot), it flew in a nice, flat glide. I enjoy Doug's kites so much, I decided I want to have him make me a Raptor 48F which will have a faster glide and be a step up from the BoP 36 for me.

I'd suggest contacting Doug if you're interested before the forum closes. He's a real craftsman and his glider kites are works of art and impeccably made!

Steve and Contributors on this great Forum,

It has been a real pleasure sharing my kite development activities with all of you and receiving your input, which has guided me over five plus years.

Steve,

This would not have been possible without this great Forum and your associated support.  God Speed my friend on your future endeavors.

Yours in kiting,

Doug

There was a Prism forum, The Kite Connection had a forum, too.

The best part of the Kite Connection Forum was The Dungeon!

Thankyou Steve for the forum, I have not been active but do read with great interest what passes here.
It is a complete library of tricks tips and information that will be sadly missed when it is gone.
unfortunately facebook is definitely out me me, down here in australia we use www.extremekites.com.au it is mainly geared toward power kites, but does have a small following in the single line, dual line sections.

I have found a piece of software that mirrors forums almost verbatim onto a local machine for preserving the info.

WinHTTrack Website Copier 3.49-2 https://www.httrack.com

very customisable, website crawler, you are able to throttle the bandwidth so as not to put undo pressure on a server whilst ripping.

it will allow a user to mirror the site for posterity and be archived onto a local machine, with the same structure as the online version.

best of luck in the future Steve, and thank you for providing an excellent resource.

regards.
Doug

I vented a Sedgwick Rev 1 by hot cutting saucer sized holes.
It  comes with the regular 4 wrap frame plus an SLE as well.... The bridle and sail are in very good shape and the hot cuts have held up.....
$125 US plus shipping from Canada....now included...

The Kite Connection had a forum, too.
Yes, Steve's CTR, but he never could get and keep enough of us over there to continue.....sorry Dave. There will never be another GWTW store or forum.
