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".

I don't have any experience with a large stunt Kite such as Spacekites Matador, however, I have flown plenty of big kites and power kites.  I would be very hesitant to fly that kite on wrist straps even padded ones.  The issue is that you have no ability to depower the kite and with a 4M wingspan depending on what your winds are like you will be at risk of being dragged or injured.  I would go with handles like you see this guy wearing
Space kites Matador : short impression
therefore you can let go if overpowered, preferably one line.  Make sure there is no one downwind when flying because if you let go they could get hurt.  Its amazing like hadge said how the downwind area can become a huge magnet for Joe public

thanks ray Smiley

but unfortunately it looks like i cant get hold of any of the 1s i would like so may have to give up on the kite idea for time being, cant believe no company no longer produces dual line deltas with wingspan of 4m+ anymore!
