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".

On one of my newer kites there is a rather large, and for me, annoying logo on the wing.  Is there any way to remove it, or should I just deal with it?

It could also be some kind of silkscreening if that is even possible.

This is also something I am not planning to do for a while.

if it is back cut then if you cut it off you will have a hole....of course....
if it is not back cut the you could in theory slice the threads holding the appliqué on and you would then have a series of sewing holes which you can try rubbing over to make hem go away.....that may or may not work....another option is having some one put a panel In place of that area......

what kite is it?Huh?

Kites kayaks & corgis again!!!

Duct Tape.   Cheesy     Or ...just "Man Up" and ignore it.    Cool   Chances are you will eventually sell it.

I can see you've changed ya image- well a lot, liked da old - We both bought an eternity and both disappointed in the quality of build. Contacted german and I have been talking to Jens and he said he will replace the sail. You might need a blow torch to get rid of that shark with the smile. Complain, U might get a new sail and a positive outcome?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuh I think the shark still lives in this kite - bugger.
