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".

Finally finished my KAP rig from Brooxes...
Hoisting it with an HQ Flow Form 2.0... ridiculously lifting kite..
Winds were real gusty but this was just a test...

It sure is purdy in the air...


The Rig: Canon S95

The neighborhood (how Boring)


The House (also Boring)


Low Altitude of the neighbors


An alien Landscape


New elementary school begins


Bad thing is, this used to be an alternate kiting field with a very large oak tree... progress  Embarrassed


All set to try it for real at the Harbor...

Nice 1st set of pics.

That is a beast of a kite for KAP. No problem lifting your rig.

May try my gomberg ghost next time. It was gusty and just threw the rig around a lot.
A tail might help also. Does it help to throw some laundry on there also to weight it down a bit?
Probably just due to bad winds
