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".

There was a Big Kite Fest. in Grand Haven,Michigan this past week-end.  I could not make it ,so I went to the local beach.. Metro Beach and put up some kites... Wanted to fly my Delta Drive and Widow Maker but by the time I got ready to switch kites peopl filled empty area.  No Biggy... I had my Jordan 50 the red,black,gray,white one...Power sled 24, Delta Convey 10ft. with four wind spinners on ends and middle, The Delta with the red and black tails I forgot anyone know it ?? Nice kite tails fell like silk...  Then a 9 Ft. Rainbow Delta with long fussy tail.

The Symphony 1.8 is a blast.  Jon Trennepohl put an attachment on the end.  Some edging sewen on the end with a metal eye punched in so it won't tear.  I connect a 4 inch  50 ft. rainbow transition tail with a 2 inch fifty foot color tail.  Looks great live.  The colors spin and blur together.  The Symphony 1.8 I can't say enough about it.  Good kite to learn Stunt Kites on.  The pull is great in heavy winds.  In strong winds without a tail pulls me foward.  Any Who  Enjoy !!!  Fun, Fun ,Fun...

Its so hard to find a good spot at Metro due to all the people. Next time I'm there, I'll try where all the kitesurfers launch at.
