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".

Some quick shots... details of tail ballast (in the style of Paul Shirey) and Wingtip detail (in style of Lam Hoac).

The eagle has landed!  It looks amazing.  Currently overcast and blowing a gale so I'll hopefully post some pics later this week.

Once again thanks to Stephen for such an awesome kite.  Donation sent to forum for running such a great site.

and finally finished my personal Essence SUL (custom design by Dana).  Here are a couple of pics.  Haven't flown it yet, but maybe this weekend.  Thanks Dana for a great panel layout!  I altered the colors slightly in order to stay more true to Dana's original layout.




I did the nose a little different on this one (compared to the kite built for Dana).  It is more in the style of Ken M. or Paul S.

Beautiful job Sugarbaker as usual, but they are looking better and better each time  Grin Tongue
How did you frame the SUL?
