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".

Hehe, at times i feel like Berlin is the Kite city of Germany. We have so many fliers, a gorgeous flying field right in the middle of the city, and you can pretty much find every kite if you look close enough in someones bag. Plus new kites are showing up very rapidly in numbers as well. On good days on the field, you can see Old Hawaiians fly along side the newest trick kites, with buggy drivers in the back ground, surrounded by single line fliers, all the while little kids with their families watch with wide open eyes their own little single string kites dance in the wind.

Well I got a chance to fly the only hugo in the states.  This is one sweet flying kite.  Mind you I only had about 20 min of 5 mph to fly it in but it handles really well.  Steady speed and pull, quite tricky and really locked in tracking.  You need good inputs to get the most out of the tricks but it will do just about any trick you want it too.  Like to get more time on the lines in better winds but this is one I will be adding to the bag when the budget allows.
