Goodwinds Kites Wind Cheater


Recommended Posts

This is a long shot, but I'm looking for the plans for the Wind Cheater, a dual line kite from Goodwinds Kites produced back in the 90's.  I bought the pattern and all of the supplies to build the kite from Gasworks Park Kite Shop in Seattle about 22 years ago and never finished it.  I still have the nylon and fiberglass and would love to build the kite, but I've lost the pattern.  Thought I would check here and see if anyone might have a copy or know where I might come across one.

Here's one of their kite patterns in case this will help jog some memories...Same packaging but a small sport kite instead of a diamond.

Goodwinds Composites in MT Vernon WA. Paul DeBakker works there and he's a master flier and designer.Helping you with the Wind Cheater might get those folks a bit excited.You could be a test monkey for their new tubes on a older design.Looked at Kitebuilders and GWTW briefly but no luck. I don't go to kitebuilders  much (for now). I get lost and lose focus on what I need to be learning now(flying). Post your question on both of those sites too. My bet is it's not that long of a shot. I seem to be reading more about older kites lately than new ones. Starting to get a glimmer of the how and why some things have changed while others not so much. Keep us posted. I'll be following with much interest.

Three years late but what the heck.
Kinda like Cosa, bought the wind cheater template from gassworks parks 20 years ago (too bad they closed), all I have left is the template.Going to give it a try in building. Looking for a used sewing machine that will work for this type of stuff.
