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".

Hey folks,

Thanks to Ko and untitled, I'm off to Hermosa Beach today to see how the winds are.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.855273,-118.3999&num=1&t=h&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=23.875,57.630033&ie=UTF8&ll=33.855613,-118.399586&spn=0.001818,0.002411&z=19

This is where I'll be.

Come and join me if you'd like?

Man, the winds were anything but calm today.
At least I got some time on my vented dual line... before attempting to get a quad up.

By the time I left, not even the little Sweety would stay afloat.

Oh well.  It was still a day at the beach flying... but no practicing tricks.  Just painting patterns on the sky!

Today looked kind of rough.  Yesterday was really nice in the morning. 
Tomorrows forecast looks good.
