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".

First custom was a PBSK Stiletto in 2000.

It's the one in back with white stitching. The one in front was the one I had seen on the web and based mine on. I later acquired it.



Since then I've ordered six more PBSKs, a Blue Moon Moonie and a Benson DSUL custom. I've also owned a lot of customs originally made for other people. I like unusual kites.

Nice looking Mamba, Devin.

My first custom was my Talon.



Followed by a custom Kitehouse Sin and a custom DS UL.

This worked out the best of the three.
