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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Bridlelines + lines + straps -> between 35 meters and 37,5 meters.
 
Because we have to be careful. The kites must not catch the radar gun...  Wink

Hi Chris,

Yes, most of the speedkites where made by the pilots themselves except the Long Duong kites (Tiger II & Mustang) and the HQ-kites X-Celerator.
