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".

Morning all...   Smiley

With around 7 hours under my belt as a kite flyer, I'm looking for some other kite flyers to fly with.

I'm in the Los Angeles Area and don't mind driving an hour or so to meet up...

Thanks

JB

Welcome. I'm on the other coast, but I'm sure you'll find some folks closer to you here.

Also, nice initials.

Ventura County Kite Flyers, home field in Oxnard, CA. Not a lot of sport kite flyers there (that I've met anyway,but I'm only an occasional flyer) but a good group of guys. Small field, but really nice, grass and ocean breezes.

Gonna take my 12 year old daughter down to Will Rogers in Santa Monica today and hopefully teach here to fly a kite.

From ~ 10am local, the winds look like they will be pretty consistent.

If any of ya are in the area, feel free to come down and join us.

Heres a geotag of where the beach is...
