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".

Hi Juergen,

The ' Black Pearl ' - sounds like the ' Pirates of the Caribbean ', one would assume the kite will cost around 280 Euros. Looks like a mix of the Genesis and Eternity??

Is it common for kites to climb like that in a turtle?  Shocked

The Lifter can be a bugger of a trick. Sometimes it seems very kite specific then some smartarse will come along and do it on a kite you previously declared it impossible on.

German kites come with them sewn in at the factory though. True story*

Sounds definitely better than Gentleman, or not?
BP (sic) is quite a new design by a new kid on the block (busterike), very nice ratio, more stretched than Genesis or Eternity. Span is 2.4m, height 0.95m.

Had a go back in June with the prototype, felt a bit like a Vortex, really tricky, unfortunately is was over 100F and hardly any wind, so we decided to move on to the Biergarten ...  Wink

Since you asked, Keith:
The UL - all framed in SkyShark is 250 and the Std. with a 6mm carbon and Skyshark mix will be 199.

Both available end of September.

> some more pictures here.

Above video is only a pre-release teaser.
AFAIK there's a test kite on its way over the pond .... watch this space.

Hi
i feel very flattered that my kite go so fast over the ocean and that u like my video.
Sorry but my english isnt so good. Just stupid school english.

@ Flying High
I have developed specifically for you this kite.
It should be for beginners to fly easily and understood new tricks without loosing the control.
And the kite alows flying with high precision (straight lines, groundpass, corners, circuits, etc.)

Further the STD is very robust because of the leading edge which is made off 6 mm carbone tube.


I hope i will answer all your questions in future (and u anderstood what i mean  Sad )

Hi John
it would be an honor for me to see my kite on one of your pictures.
I always admire your photos. I myself am against just a layman.
That you like the design pleased Jens (LevelOne) and me. Thanks.

If you're serious about having your kite it a photo by me.....

Drop me an email for my address and send the kite over so I could get some photos and fly it along with 3 or 4 of the local boys who have been admiring the kite. Then I'll send the kite back to you.

But in all honesty, it looks like your photography is totally fine. And from the angles and time you shot the kite, it would appear you are already following the kite photography steps I've written about in past articles.

It is a strong panel layout. Nicely done.  Smiley
