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".

I thought I'd share a couple pictures of my latest kite. The kite was made in 1996 by a company called Kites Into The Endless Sky. It is approximately 12' from point to point and is a very stable flier.

When a beautiful kite is large.....

I'd suggest you get a photo with someone next to it

for a sense of scale.

Just a thought.

Thanks everybody.

John, I always think about things like that after the fact. I will make sure to include people in the photos in the future.

Allen, it's a handful to assemble on a calm day, it only gets worse with wind.  Smiley
