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.

Might check these guys out Northern California Kite Club

They say they have a monthly fly in Sonoma County, but I could not tell if the site is current or not

There are numerous fly's in the Berkeley / Bay area

Bay Area Sport Kite League shows a Mar. 5th, 2011 Fun Fly at Doran Beach, Bodega Bay

Also check out Old City Kites  (sorry no direct link allowed..you will have to Google them)in Sacramento they have a schedule.

I also heard thier are some folks in Chico (not sure if that's true)

If your Girlfriend brings you back to Brookings, I will fly with you, I have my own beach

OH yea, welcome to the addiction, What kites have you collected so far??

You should click onto Randyg's blog site. He has some of the best tutorials.   I started looking at them in the beginning of 2008 and keep going back to them now.  He is a great source of help especially if you can't find some one to fly with.

Hope to see you in Brookings also.  Our local club The Rogue Valley Windchasers meet the first full weekend of every month.  If you're up this way let us know  Wink
