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".

Lots of reply's & info Smiley



finally ...Line! ..not sure what type of line i should get & how long :s ?

Thanks again guys/gals Smiley


You need a good quality Dyneema line - as you are in the UK something like Climax or Shanti lines would be good.
 Length 25-30 metres.

strength, well HQ recommend 220kp / 485 lb for the Fazer XXL, and 140kp / 310lb for the XL.

You might have to buy an Elliot direct from Germany.

Check your PM's Wink

There is a UK based forum called Fractured Axel (sp?). Lots of UK based two liners there. They could probably give you plenty of local support and recommendations.

Holy mother of wind!!!! Now THAT is the closest I've seen to a hang-glider/kite hybrid. It's massive.

To get dragged around the beach a Flexifoil 8 or 10 will fill the bill, for speed and still some good pull a 6 can be a lot of fun. But no tricks. They've been made right there in England for 40+ years. If you can swing 2 kites every bag should have a Flexifoil IMO.
