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".

Just some clips of flying at the beach.  It was a good day as you will hear me sing...  Grin.. Did a few tricks better than last year.  Finally getting axels and lazy susans.  Flew the Ocios and the end is my kite bag.  Missing...Delta Drive, Ocios ul, Pro-Dancer.  I also have pic of my new travel cart.  I revamped an old golf cart for kites.  Drilled a new hole and moved the support bracket higher to grab kite bags with strap.  I also screwed Home Depot bucket to base and sides.  Using flange washers and screws.  I was parked in the first spot at the beach.  I have to walk at least to far tree in background to fly... the cart is nice... Beats the huge Garden wagon I used last year... It will still get use for major days...  Vertigo out !!!

Looks like you're having fun out there, Joe!
Also, by the looks of it, you're really beginning to get some of the stuff nailed down. Pairs for fun over the summer? You have a mamba AND a mongoose now, so why not?!  Cheesy

See you in a few weeks, I get home may 8th.

Hey Vert...
Looks like a real nice place you've got to fly. Looked especially nice when the wind was blowing offshore and you were flying over the water. Nice flock of kites you've got, too. Thanks for posting, good to see what & where others are flying...
