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".

The wife and I took a little ride over to the beach to visit a kite store we had not ever visited.  Nice place, lots of everything type kite you want to include the extreme board kites and such.....

I spotted a Widow in two colors, along with some Revs, Q Pros, Prisms, Silver F and others.......   When the sales person approached and intro himself, I asked a few questions about their stock and some kites he did not have.

He was very helpful to both the wife and I.   

I then asked about a Widow Maker, his eyes opened alittle wider and he said "you know about the WM huh?",  He went in the back and came out with a Red/Wht/Blk WM, he slid it out of the bag and we began looking at the differences between it and the Widow. 

After he had taken his time to do all this, he turned to my wife and asked about her kite flying experiences.  She said she's a big-time new-bie to dual line kites but is very instead in getting something decent, not junk and not high dollar.

He showed her a full spread Citrus E3 and discussed it's advantages, as well as draw-backs.  She appreciated his straight forward approach and discussion, and she said she'd take the E3.

We picked up some lines, a couple of other goodies and a kite bag that will hold our other 3 kites and paid the tab.

I was drooling over a 3 Rev's and she said I should get one of those too.......  So needless to say I was happy to get, not to be greedy, a nice Rev XP with kit.

So Friday, we're headed to the beach to fly ourselves into a frenzy and just enjoy the day hanging out together.

Yes, she has 6 sisters.............................

You are one lucky guy. Great kites, great company...
I used to fly with my wife, but since we had kids, she's flown exactly once. She's just lost her interest/mindset for it. It's lonely at the beach, now, for the most part, unless she brings the kids down. Then it's time for flight lessons...

How old is your son?  Mine is a little over 2 1/2 and I can't imagine teaching him for a while.  SLKs keep his attention for all of about 5 minutes at the beach.
