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".

Yep !!!  Now I am teaching the gang how to do Double Axels.  Except they need to learn how to do a proper Axel... Laid out flat "Old School" style.  With you hiding out at School the responsibility has been hinder on me.   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

540's were a real toughie to learn... Then I can't remember who maybe "Thief" said ... " learn it on the other side...".  That is when you begin looking for a bridge... JUMP !! or learn the trick...   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

My best improvement is really understanding the kite.  Flying with her and not flying her.  Going with the wind and allowing it to help do the trick.  Understanding how to create that same pull with little wind and heavy wind.  Bridle adjustments. 

However last season at the end I thought my Axels were really coming together... This season Axels at times could not of been better.  Double A's have been fun...

Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

It's a great kite. I'll have to get mine from the States as the kite store here in Oz that stocks Sky Dog only does the "Rasta" sail.

Nice flying as usual.

I remember getting everyone and their mother to explain and teach you a proper axel for 2 years. And how to slowly start to fly and not be afraid of getting close to the ground.

They grow up so fast.  Cry Cry
