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 recently found this kite for sale online. The Midi was one of my grails for a very long time. The Midi is constructed with Ventex sail material and Avia pultruded rods and flies very well in a smooth breeze. This was shot during a morning session on the Lies beach, Terschelling.  Enjoy.

Thanks for posting the video, very enjoyable! The Midi is one of my favourite kites. Keep an eye out for its trickier sibling, the Zenith.

Love It!

Midi's are my go-to kite for short line flying. The kite's capabilities match my own, so I never miss the "modern" tricks...

My main one has a Skyshark 3PT frame. Have a UL in 2PT, and I've fiddled around with heavier/stiffer setups. The 3PT is really sweet.

My favorite video of yours, next to the Eclipse video. Seamless transitions between tricks and flying- love this dearly.

Keep them coming!
