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".

Last week Jon and company did an indoor show for the cub scouts.  I video'd the gig and put together this little video of the show.  He does these shows for schools and kids.  At times kids cheering is all the pay one needs.

A few comments on JT's flying disk and dancing ability  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I have one of Jon's discs too.....they fly better than any other AirYo or Rev UFO.....not just because they are bigger.....


it needs a home........ it now has a new home....
Jon told me he only made 10 of them....

Soooo easy.....
the amount of horizontal sail area is huge so it just has a slow glide....with the sliding bridle (goes straight across like the equator from side to side) that gives you the ability to spin it and have great control over it.   
Jon's disc is about 1 and a half times bigger than the New Tech AirYo or the Rev UFO so that is nice too....easier to assemble as well....all skyshark p90s....
Anyone can do it!!
cheers

The Rev UFO has a wand of carbon rod with a rubberized handle. Sadly, the end of the carbon rod very quickly wears out the line as it moves in and out of the wand.
