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 picked up an Sky Burner Ocius while on my trip to Treasure Island last weekend & I have to say they look much better "in person" than they do on the Sky Burner website where the color choices are not actual photos of the Ocius in the various different color combos!

I had thought about getting one awhile back but seeing one on the wall of a kite shop in St. Augustine made it pretty irresistible! I'll try to take some photos when I get a chance.

Oh ...and not a secondary fact ...they fly pretty dang well too! They sit nicely in a turtle, IMO ....and they really like to roll up with minimal effort.  Grin

I know that kite.  I think I saw it on the wall and was impressed that they had one.

Very cool.  Nice kite!

Sorry  guys & gals. It'll be awhile until I can post a picture of mine. It's on loan to at a friend's home.

That 'mostly purple' one sounds nice. Pics of that would be appreciated.

Here's some custom colors I'm considering for an SUL:

Seriously? Is that official? That's cool if it is! I don't know if I'd prefer colored wingtips  or not on an Ocius but I'd be interested in seeing one before making a deciaion!

These are the wing tip accents Jon is talking about. Not much but I think it adds a bit to the kite.
