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.

Well damn.  I live just on the Florida side of those fine beaches you are visiting.  Unfortunately I don't get back until Wednesday or I would head out there one day.  Let me know next time you come down to the gulf coast.

Well, today the wind was good, but the day plans did not cooperate. However I did sneak in some time with the Black Pearl UL and the Seven UL.
The BP UL is a good stable, well tracking kite. It spins easily, and will wrap up although I am not good at any of this stuff.
Seven seems to like a little more wind, but it flips into a fade so easily and does everything I can do.

Any way, here's some snaps from today...

Some photo shop fun of my black pearl UL


BP UL in all her orange glory...


Seven UL ... Ain't she purdy ...


Last shot of the bp.

Unfortunately that's all I got to fly on a perfect morning of kiting...
Maybe more tomorrow, but going to take the ferry across mobile bay to see fort Morgan, so I don't know if I will get out in the am yet or not...
