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".
Questions or concerns?

[...] I counted 34 duel-line stunters in their mass ascension/flight.

In the video, the speaker says "trente-six pilotes" (36).


I'm also amazed by all the spectators watching the event/events! Wouldn't it be nice to see this large of a crowd at a kite event here in USA.

thanks for the info,

i should have specified its for a single line large delta kite,

i fly alone, so other kites are out of the question,

i have read that kevlar does not last long because of UV sun rays, do you think this is true?

Yeah, also the speed of their kites may have been an issue with a bunch of slow moving Fury's in the sky. Those Nirvanas fly much faster.

single line?
sport kites?

multi line kites benefit from lines that are low stretch and want a Spectra or Dyneema line set here....
Kevlar used to be used for sport kites but with the non-slippery part and the danger factor they are not used much anymore....

single line you want a durable can stretch or not as that does not will find people flying single line kites on Spectra, Dyneema, Polyester, Dacron, Nylon, Cotton, Kevlar and other types of lines that have differing cores and sheaths....this is up to you....the Kevlar and Cotton lines are the MOST abrasive to tissue and other do not cross lines with another kite and then yank because both cotton and kevlar will easily cut the other line...

Looks like Evidence got off to a rocky start in the mega fly. Man, that would scare the **** out of me. Scotty's been to Berck twice before, so I'm sure they just reset and dove back in again. You gotta be prepared for anything to fly in such a scene!

Very Nice. I found Team Evidence and Team Airzone out of the bunch. I can't believe there wasn't a catastrophic crash with all those kites in the air.

which is the best kind of kite line to go with?

i have always used kevlar in the past which has worked well, im buying new line for a new kite, should i stick with the kevlar?

i see most kite shops selling dacron and polyester,

what are the pros and cons of them all?

More Mega Team vids:

This one shows the teams launching and joining up. Gives a good view of what it's like on the ground too. Stampeding team members! This kind of flying ain't easy.

This one is from underneath looking up.
