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 I'd go 3rd or 4th on the Zen with a Rev 2. Anytime you fly it with amplified music (I hate earphones) is a moment, funnest kite to just dance to the beat with IMO.

that was a great read Allen..  I was almost there with you..

We got to fly again yesterday..  wind out of the east but still nice..  just enough to keep a std in the air.

I am so glad to heat that it's possible to learn how to fly revs after flying nothing but dualies..  I want to learn this summer..  I have one just waiting to get in the air..  i am a bit intimidated by it

i learned to fly revs after flying nothing but dualies.  It's not that difficult at all really.  At first you may be moving your arms back and forth a bit; just remind yourself not to do that; it's all in your wrists (mostly)... though there is back and forth movement later when you fine-tune things.  i rarely fly my revs any more... but plan to later on when i have more time.  Right now, with limited time, i am exclusively flying dualies... which is just a preferential thing.

kite zen, hrmn.
Sunset flys, lightwinds, Floaty tricks, and "Augusts Rhapsody in C Major" from August Rush (the slow sections of the piece) make for a great flight session. If you guys havent heard the piece, look it up on Itunes! Its some good flying music, in my opinion.  Smiley

I got more of that Zen today and it just keeps getting better..  I actually made it to the beach twice today..  earlier the wind was out of the east and being the wind snob that i am i could only stand it for a hour or so..  but I had the perfect kite.. the Mantis Dark Moonie and a 100ft tube behind it..  now this and some good music make for a pretty wonderful fly..

I went back to the beach at 3:30..  the wind had switched around out of the west and dropped..  the tide was out and it was time for sweetness!

I hope you all got to fly something this weekend!
