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".

How many do I have is a question I often get asked. My answer is I'm not sure I haven't counted.
Denial is a wonderful state.
Do you count stacks as more then one kite?
Plus you can't keep them in the same place so that they can't be counted.
Plus I dont have an addiction,i left kites at home when I came to the beach on vacation

Uh Huh  Sad

Why count?  It's depressing.....just choose 25 and go to the beach.......if you break one just take out another.

It's NOT an addiction.....Nope, NO WAY Undecided

I like your line of thinking!  Pass me an upper spreader and a winder, would ya?   Smiley

I've spent far more on things I could care less about - my kites are like family.   That's it!  Of course it takes a village!  Smiley

PS

I think we should start a Facebook group or perhaps a band called 'The Enablers'.

This from a guy that has a trailer to haul his kites around.  Undecided

There is hope.  I am now down to maybe ten from a high of sixty plus.  The bad thing is that the bicycles that replaced them are harder to hide from the wife than the kites. Roll Eyes

No matter how bad you have it, there is always someone with a worse case:

That is awesome and BTW if you count them, you're not an addict. The proper number is "not enough".

This is a couple of years old and I really *must* document how my drive to reduce my collection has gone (hint: very, very badly indeed).

Thanks guys, I really am feeling much better.  Smiley.   

What is a number really?  I mean, in the grand wonder of the universe, is there really any difference between, say 25 and 250.  Not really! 

It's the difference between grains of sand that clung to your phone versus those on your big toe.

Now, hit the swap - lots of good deals in there!

Well, in two months i've acquired 4.  I am still wrestling with the fact that i went from being a geahead to a kite junkie in something like a WEEK!   But i rationalize it that i needed a beginer kite,  one for the wife, a very low wind kite and a trick kite.    If i can rationalize any furter, i am in trouble!    Oh,   but i have my rev all picked out for my birthday :-)

Emegaz pulled out his brand new first in the US "Black Arrow"

Reddobbie set up three Blue Moon Monnie kites

Gamelord brought a R-Sky Krystal for the first time

Flew Fidelio;s Talon UL for the first time. WOW  Huh

Spend last night have all those kites filling my dreams.   Thanks Guys, what are friends for  Kiss
