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".

Currently in Las Vegas:

Winds NW at 6 mph.

However,

47F and raining.

Not that I haven't flown in the rain before:

John Gillespie and David Barnby at Shoreline 2003, although the EFIX data says Dec 4, 2002.

The kites on the left and bottom are slick looking kites.  Bottom looks like a TOTL not sure on the left one.

isn't the one on the right a Wayne Knott/Dreamweaver Kites model?
Maybe a Sahara? Ronin? I'm not sure, Wayne had quite a few limited run kite models, but those look like his style of graphics.

Yea that has to be a Dreamweaver.  Knott did a lot of unicorn kites Tongue  I loved the dreamweaver I had but hated the rainbow unicorn.  Made a little girl happy back then though Smiley

His masque was one of my all time favs out of all of them. A really good kite once you learned its dance moves. If i ever get done paying my dentist off and you want to sell one I'd be interested.  I'd offer a trade but most of my kites are waiting on rods since a kid did a back flop on my kite bag at the last fly session.
