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".

I own 7 Nirvana's

I have one of the first ones Steve brought over back when there was a shortage of black ripstop. This one is purple and rubin, just could not bring myself to buy a "earth tone" one.

Also have one of the four Debray replicas that Steve had for sale.

The rest are a STD, vented, UL and SUL. The 7th Nirvana is a NSE. I also have two other R Sky kites.


Kites & Corvettes, both, a great way to fly.

I've owned 4. A NSE & an NFX sport, both sold! Wasn't a fan of the NSE. Loved the NFX Sport, sold it Only due to replacing it with an NFX Extend! Then there is the Manga! Just mailed my NFX Extend, as a replacement, to a friend who was wearing out their NFX Extend due to all the flying it gets! The Manga stays with me until someone pries my cold dead fingers away from it!  Cheesy

Did I forget to mention it's been my #1 favorite for awhile now ...although my latest builds from David @ Kite D.E.signs are giving it a good run for the money!  Grin

Like others have already mentioned, IMO the NFX/NFX Extend/Manga (all essentially the same kite except for slight differences in framing, etc.) are the best Nirvanas of the lot!

To my knowledge...there are only 3 Manga's stateside! It's too bad they were a limited 'special order kite' exclusively sold @ Bilboquet in France, and no longer available! Sad

Here's mine:

Shameless Plug > > > If any of the other two Manga statateside are in excellent condition and the owners want to sell ...let me know
