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".

This project has been in the works for about 8 months now. Almost to the finish line! Sixth Sense STD nitro version. I need to tie up a bridle and sew a sleeve and we'll be able to hit the field.



this picture doesn't do the color justice, I'll snap another when the sun comes out.

Like those colors! Looks like good work on a good kite. It's not as easy to make a kite as people think, not for me anyways. I flew a Sixth Sense at the Treasure Island event this year and thought it was a pretty good kite. I may make one of these myself someday. Have fun with it!

You do understand that the Sixth Sense is a free kite project made available to the kiting community by the designer?

"Taking it to China" wouldn't really be cricket..

Its the hottest kite ever and i want it,but times are a flying and 8 months is over half a year and this years virtually half over so i would prefer to have it in the bag now and preferably made by you not me as ive no skills or time to make kites as my current free time is limited enough and the kites,new, used or even better,your (latest incredible addition) hopefully become available for meatballs like me to have and to hold for a price that seriously out ways its craftsmanship,heritage,materials and labour of love,let alone its true value.
PS: The game of Cricket is a waste of flying space and time!
And that kite of yours really,really is very,very good looking and the consuming world deserves it!

I believe Davide Equizzi, the designer, is willing to make sails for a fee.  May be worth contacting him.

Thanks for the kind words!

I guess I should have added that I'm lazy...which is why it took 8 months, lol.
