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".

Well the wind was great and I took everything I learned this week and flew.  I started doing more axels properly. My axel although proper was wrong.  The one I do needs to be done on the right side.  I started doing the other one on the left side.  More comfortable with it but the other side will catch  up in a day or two.  hehehehe Practice.  Heck last week I couldn't do the right side.   I did some nice slides...  I fly the Widow Maker then I go to a new toy kite "VISION" by preimer.   Jon built it years ago.   It's a beginner.  What a rush.  Pretty up in the sky also.  Some mylar panels... Without a weight it was doing tricks.  When I went down it was simple to get back up.  Briddle is different.  For $45...BUY ONE..If you don't like it..I'll give you the $45 bucks.  Great kite... Espically if you can fly a little.   Built like a brick out house.  Then it's Mamba Time.  She fly's with grace and elegance... Got tired after 3 hours and went home. 
It's morning hoping to fly havnen't check weather report... My upload is finished...So have a nice Mother's day !!!  Enjoy Vertigo Out !!!

JUST Checked weather :  Here it is..Guess were I am headed ?

JOE! You're killing me!
Still haven't flown sence december, but am really excited to get back.
I'll be back tonight, I'm in a hotel with the parents waiting for a concert. On wednesday, what do you say to getting there early or meeting at the shop early and all that jazz shoot me a PM and we'll talk.
Slides are looking good! Excited to see that new Mmmmmamba of yours!

You are getting better!  Nice flying.  I notice you like that spot where you fly, I have one like it.  Pretty soon they will start calling you the "crazy kite guy" like they do me Smiley
