Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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".

Ken, have you concidered possibly selling the Ichiban or other designs to someone who can carry on producing them?

Sure is a loss to not be able to have great designs as an option. I understand when its time to quit. I know Joel Scholz and he told me the same thing when he quit, its just time.
Best of luck!

Ken, Thank you for all you have done for the sport of kiting. Our family wishes you and your's the best for the future, wherever that may take you. Deb, Chris and I have many great kiting memories, but building kites with you is certainly at the top of the list. - I still have every kite of your's I have ever owned. I won't say how many that is, Deb may be reading this. All the best to you my friend.

I was going to wait until my new Mojo arrived...which it did today....before replying to this.
Shoulda bit the bullet and ordered another Mamba at the same time....too late now I guess...
Thanks Ken for breaking and keeping my Rev addiction at bay!!!!
I am very fortunate to have a small collection of Ken`s kites and cherish them all....even more now.

Thanks for the great contributions to kiting.  Love my Mamba, Exile STD and UL  You're designs will be cherished and new production missed.  Best wishes in whatever new endeavors you pursue.
