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".

Wish I could remember all the folks that have helped me over the years,... just giving back doesn't seem like enough

I kinda thought it required the walk but good to double check. Thx for the info.

It's called a dead launch. Better to walk for that one. Can always "check the bridle and line connection" while you do it....

In that position, its best to just make the walk. There is a move that you can do, but its not very effective on newer style kites, and its very hard on the kite (wear and tear).

So I got the used Zephyr and I've got about 3 hours on the lines so far. Loving it btw.

Amongst other things I'm working on ground recoveries and doing ok with them. My question is what to do when the kite it on its belly with its nose pointing towards me. In this situation is there a technique to get it launchable without the walk of shame?

I put up a blog post a few years ago regarding kiteboarding.  I have done it myself and it is pretty awesome.  The blog is quite dated and really should be updated sometime.  The info may help you out though.

Hope this helps.

I want to thank the few brave folks that were at the WOW meet up this past Sunday. Paul Lamasters, Melissa and James "fletch" Fletcher. Very cool and patient with this new quad flyer ( kept calling James "stretch" sorry bro). Special thanks to Paul for taking the time to show me how to properly set up my lines and kite before flight and how to pack it all up too when done. That's gonna save me a ton of time. My leaders were "totally unacceptable" LOL, so I was made new ones on the fly. Lesson for the day was to work on perfecting the inverted hover. Not easy to control at all since I've really only been flying balls to the wall with all power on from day one. With a few suggestions and explanations I got a little better. Flying upside down will take many more hrs on the lines but I'm determined. Anyway, I  look forward to the next time. Thanks guys!
