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".

Sky Burner Kites would like to thank everyone that responded to choosing colors for the new Aura. It is one of the hardest things to decide on.  Color combo's are so personal.   I am ready to cut some of the first kites then go on to make final decisions on the fit and finish of this kite.  It is great to see the sport kite flyers give input into doing a new kite.  It is inspiring.  I think there could be something new in what we are trying to achieve with Aura. A smaller kite that will fly in really low wind and trick and have some old school touch. To start with I would like to make this kite in a UL series.  The UL being framed around Sky Shark 2pts with a weight in the 5oz range and one for indoors that will be framed with the new Zero tubes at 4oz. I have made one with the P1X tubes with 3pt spreaders that was also alot of fun to fly.... maybe down the road. I will keep you posted on the progress on the kite. Thank you John Chilese  for  posting this  and to all the kite flyers that love to fly sport kites, it is something that keeps me going and wanting to create new kites after 24 years of producing kites in the good old USA.

Dang ....I need to check into the forum more often! I missed out on this one!

I guess the old adage "you snooze, you lose!" applies!  Cheesy

So where can I see info and pictures of the new kite & kite design?

I have been told by Wayne that the Limited Edition Run on

the Spider version has already happened. Quantity = 1.

But, you never know.....

I've been told everything has a price.  Smiley

Although Jon made 7 spider Widow Makers and has been

asked to make more. But he is a man of his word.
