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.

I found a Treasure Island Sport Kite Klub (TISKK) but my email came back undeliverable.

So...I will try this way.

I will be there for work and bored on weekends.  I would like to fly Sat and Sun.

Anyone in the area want to join me or tell me where to go (others than Treasure Island which looks great!)?  Recommendations on kites I should bring (SUL,UL,std, vented)?

Hopefully I can connect with someone.

You should bring all your kites so you're not left wishing you had the vented or the SUL. You're going to have a great time ! Wish I was there.

Where in Central Florida will you be, might be to connect you with some flyers. Love to have you fly with us at Southpointe Park in Orlando.

I'd suggest connecting with Kiting Tampa Bay on FB.  I haven't managed to connect with them yet the last two times I was in Florida to see my father.  However, they fly at Treasure Island frequently (and you just missed their KiteOberfest).

I realized that I did not indicate where I would be.

I will be in Brooksville, FL.  1 hr North and slightly West of Tampa.

However, I have a rental car and want to see how far I can go into the surf and still make it out.

Recommendations of any kite stores in Central Florida would be appreciated!

It took a while but I was able to connect.

I flew with them 2 weeks ago and am trying to connect for this weekend and next.

Then, I get to go home.  Yippie!

This Sat I get to fly in St Augustine (Quantum Pro Vented I just bought). Treasure Island on Sunday.

How has the flying been? Low or high winds? How are the beaches in early winter?

Hmnm... Rats nest....the only issue I had that I would say was a rats nest is my power kite that is giving me an issue with the string twisting everytime I pull it out.

I was flying the yellow Power Kite (libre brand) and a vented rev and a Quantum Pro.

Bald guy.  Extremely handsome...yup, that was me.

I confirmed I am picking up a harness in St Augustine on Saturday and the fly on Treasure Island on Sunday.  If you are there Sunday, I will see you.
