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".

Not had much chance to fly this year, but had an hour with the Superfly UL and Talon UL this afternoon.

Well, there are people that love a really light kite and have no desire for trickability in them.

Norm,
I will put October on my schedule to make sure I can make it up to Oxnard that weekend.
Very cool that I am getting to meet some fellow fliers. I can get some lessons from ALL of you.
Sounds good.....If you practice the Axel and can get them relatively flat then doing a broken Axel to Fade will be a piece of cake. Then one of us will show you a pancake to fade, which is easier. From there the sky is the limit. You will learn a lot faster (as you already know) flying with someone else, so be sure to take Kurt up on his offer for a trip to Hermosa Beach. Kurt (and the video I took of him) taught me the Half Axel out on the beach right there at Oxnard Beach Park.

Kurt,
Thanks for the offer. Hermosa is only 45 minutes or so from the Valley. No traffic. I would really like to head on down one weekend and fly there.

Besides a day at the beach is better than pretty much any thing else. Even if the winds do not cooperate.
See you all soon.
P.S. Jon Tell Dawn that Kim was super impressed with here art. Kim had a blast yesterday.

That kite was basically made for a flyer like you. Smooth inputs, etc is what the kite adores. Big kite, but flys like a small one. Glad you're getting along with it. Anthonys tweaks made it smoother, and the ones we did settled it into a more tracking oriented feeling kite. Balance is wonderful on the kite for tricks, which is what I love about it. Especially the UL model.

Keep it up Rob, looks fantastic.

 It looks like the Solus was made for Flic Flacs, JL's, Backspins, Lewis, and the roll-ups.You made everything look almost effortless. Oh, I loved the almost too low Flic Flac. Looks like you completed the AVFFF "trick challenge" right at the end. Thanks for posting this. I think you might have sold another Solus for Jon. I am seriously considering one. Could it be the Custom Straps?  Cheesy  Grin

hey Norm Let me know when you are headed south again.. We could all meet at oxnard or even better Hermosa beach which is even more consistent wind wise, if you like the lighter stuff. Sorry I didnt jump in sooner but I have been in computer hell.. Hey T I have the best conditions on the planet. with beaches groomed daily and sand like powdered sugar average lab grade winds at 6 mph Oxnard is great but the winds can be a little unpredictable That coming from someone COMPETLY spoiled LOL
Come on down,,,  Kurt

I have reservations for the week-end of October 18th & 19th in Oxnard. I did have reservations for Columbus Day week-end, but figured the Oxnard Beach Park would be really crowded. So, why don't you come on up and lower your standards to fly in 2nd class wind conditions with us at Oxnard. Don't forget to bring your bride. Back to Hermosa Beach; Do you have any recommended Motels? I know I can always look on the internet, but sometimes a recommendation is better than a shot in the dark, especially at the places I stay. I like the sounds of 6 mph on groomed powdered sands. How long does it take you to get to Oxnard?
