Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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".

In honor of Ken McNeill (2 l's, not 1) opening his doors to kitemaking....

Thought we'd have a thread honoring the man.

I chose the Mamba as it was his flagship kite and probably the most
versatile panel layout ever done on a sport kite.

So, show us your Mamba(s).  Smiley
This was a gift from some special people on the Forum.



Let me know if you can see the 3D Mamba in this cross-your-eyes stereogram.
