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".

Unfortunately the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans hinder the kite more than the Cool-Aid.

That may be true of someone who buys a certain kite as a status symbol, but really, is the big controversy really over a few dollars ? I see the WM and the FL & SD as being on the same playing field, pricewise, and capability-wise.

*Let's try to keep the language in bounds.
  Family site and all that.
  Thanks.
Let me see. I could also have said: Are you trying to be funny? What are you a wise guy? The emoticon was to let you know it was a joke. I even tried to explain the joke, that the kite and the maker tend to be controversial. I am sorry if I was too subtle.

WOW,this is the color style i was thinking of!!!!!!!
nice,looks awsome.
so,is this kite of yours a widow maker by any chance??
cheers

What are you a smart guy?  Cheesy No its a Sea Devil. The kite and its maker, tend to be controversial, from time to time.

Jay

If your going to call someone a "smart guy" at least know the difference between a Sea Devil and Fearless.  Roll Eyes

... Now back to the original thread thoughts.
I have never been real big on all or mostly black kites either.  But in the past couple of years I have acquired a few mostly black kites and if there is some other colors added to the sail that pop, it can make for a nice looking kite.  So maybe I am warming up to the black thing.
My black Vendetta vent:


But I still think black is to "heavy" for any kind of SUL kite.  Wink

The limitations of digital photos posted on web pages and viewed on home monitors don't allow black kites to show up well; they look much better in person.

Well said and I think it is certainly true.  Smiley

Video and images really do not capture the power of real-time black.  There is a definite underscored presence with a black kite in good light that is unmatched for esthetics IMO.
