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".

Hi everyone,

Firstly, thank you for your support of VF over the years -- particularly to Frazer who funded the website hosting far longer than ever intended, and to the prize donors who provided so many great incentives to enter.

For whatever reason, the competition is going through a period of reduced interest. I've considered the options, and here is how I would like to move ahead:

  • The competition takes a break for 6 months, at which time we re-evaluate the situation and see if there is sufficient interest to launch VF32. If so, we launch VF32 and see how it goes; if not, we opt for another period of hiatus.
  • The website remains online at for another 12 months. Alex has generously offered to help with the cost of hosting, however I would like to see the costs shared across more than one person, in keeping with the community spirit of the competition. We need to raise $120 for 12 months of hosting; if you can help with monetary donations, please PM me for the Paypal account.  More than 12 months worth of funding would be a bonus.
  • The ownership of the domain (and associated billing) is transferred from Frazer to me. If, after 12 months, we run out of funds for hosting at, we forfeit the domain and move the site to shared hosting. One option is

VF is not disappearing just yet -- it's just adapting to the ebb and flow of the kiting world. Smiley

When you say silicone, will WD40 work?

Or put the APA into boiling water. It works perfect and is less expensive than silicon.

That's so sad. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Are there kite designs by Andre available as plans? I would like to honour him by building one of his (speed)kites and fly it.
Agreed. I drooled over his designs
