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.

Solus Standard Low Winds.

Hey guys,
This was taken 5 days or so when we got the first production standard sail (8/10/11) and this was during the time when we were making sure everything was ok with the kite. Pretty low winds, as you can see from the video, and this uncut clip was supposed to be a 'trick breakdown' tape, but for some odd reason I can't figure out how to enter that much text on my moviemaking software, so I just decided to throw it on youtube just because. Nothing to snazzy, just some testing and some slower tricks.

Hope everyone's been having a good week!

Ding ding!!

That is a great clip.

Clearly flown by a fella that is thinking about the flight the entire time...not just when the kite is doing a trick.

Two thumbs way up.

That captures what the Solus felt like to me n the short time I flew it. Surprisingly agile for a big kite, but the size encourages slow, intentional flying.

Good work!
