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".

It is very nice!
I had never seen a kite with the tail so high above the floor (then again I haven't seen that many kites since I'm a newbie).
I wonder whether that makes it more precision or trick oriented.
Please give feedback on your flight.
Thanks for the picture.

Tom, I don't recognize the the field you took your pictures at... is it in Seattle?  Let me know so I can check it out when I get back to town!

Stephen,

This is at the 10th street dock in Everett - right across from Jetty Island.  There is a park right near the water that you are not supposed to fly in, but I do if no one is around. 

The designated flying area is on the other side of the parking lot and the wind there is not nearly as good, but workable.   

My son is hooked on paintball which is in Everett, so I try to get some flying on when he is doing that.  The wind here is super sweet when coming off the water at any angle.
