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".

Given that I've not done this ever in over 20 years this could be interesting.

First three:

TOTL Hawaiian Team


TOTL Hawaiian Spin-off


TOTL North Shore Radical (with light wind spars installed, heavy vertical spar on the floor played with by cats)

Photographing these without the kittens going nuts has been a challenge: the third was off camera ready to
pounce on it:




Much more to come!

Kittens and kites don't mix. I know this from experience.

One of the few times our cats seem to mind me, always curious but a stern "NO" seems to keep them from going after the bridles and shiney fabric. I guess I sound like I mean it  Angry   Cheesy

Some nice classics there that look to be in excellent condition still, never saw a TOTL Hawaiian with only a single wing stripe like yours, only the plain ones and the full Chevron design.
