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.

Gerardo nice flying and video. Will's kites are downright tricky and playful. The Sabre 2 is the best yet, and Will isn't at his peak just yet.

Looks like a beautiful place to fly.


It really is a nice place to fly, it is a park called "Paseo de la Costa", located in one of the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires, on the coast of the Río de la Plata. This river is very wide here; as a matter of fact, it is the widest river in the world, it measures approximately 45 Km in width between Buenos Aires and Colonia del Sacramento on the Uruguayan coast; and the wind usually blows from the river, so it is very smooth. I live just seven kilometers from that park, so I usually ride my bicycle over there every saturday and sunday and as you can see in most of my vids, I'm not the only kite fan going there, we are a numerous group, including every type of kites, SLK, quads, duals, foils, etc. And the warm weather of Buenos Aires lets us fly all year round, in summary, it's a nice place to be if you like kites.

just watched this video another time.  I really enjoy the shots at the end of the video when the camera is at the side of the wind window... really great shots of the half axels at the end... and great flying!

Thanks, glad you liked it; those images at the end are more a merit of my friend Gabriel who is also a pilot but a trained cameraman too.
