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".

Take a minute to stop video to see his craftsmanship... Guy is incredable ...  I will post more info in him when I get O.K. from him.  Not Sure if he sells these beauties.

Tony in the background are the Windjammers Kite Team. (btw if you haven't seen them youtube them)... I got a chance to fly the 13 stack dnyo's...WHAT A RUSH ... Pull was less than expected.  They don't turn sharp like the vision stacks.  But beautiful to fly.

Would that be Adrian Conn? (I think) I was drawing up somewhat similar plans for a Manta Ray type kite combining a delta & foil back in 1990-91 when he came out with that design beating me by a year or more. Fantastic kite, sadly I was never fortunate enough to see it or meet him in person. Thanks for the vid, I sure enjoyed seeing more of the kite then a static photo. There was either a write-up on the kite or plans available back in the 90's.
