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".

So jealous of your flying location. I have lots of old skyburner/HQ kites... should probably take them out more.

I believe we have a video that defines the term "AoxomoxoA".  I like this video - a lot.

A kite buddy asked me if I had any videos of my flying.

My answer was no, what I do doesn't attract much attention and nobody would really bother filming it. Lots of just flying around with some slow old school tricks every now and then.

The other day I found myself on a narrow beach with an SUL and short linset and thought I would probably be just doing some floaty tricks in the space available and it would show up OK in a video. So I propped up the iPhone and filmed for a couple of minutes. Just several kinds of flat spins, which is what the VP does best. I edited out the middle minute but kept the little two rotation pinwheel at the end.

Actually, I was going by the title more this time (in the bag)

as opposed to in the kite closet.

I forgot to mention the excellent Skyburner Aura SUL (spider  Wink ).

My No. one kite is Skydogs SWEET EMOTION.  My No. two is the same as No. one.  I'll say it again. My No. one kite is Skydogs SWEET EMOTION.  I have a lot of kites and some are very expensive, but my SWEET EMOTION totally out performs all of them for a third of the price. I wish you guys could see me fly this kite. Skydog decision to discontinue this kite instead of improving it and promoting this kite was a BIG MISTAKE.  It's replacement the new crossfire doesn't yo yo quite as well. The potential for tricking with this kite seems limitless.

That's what I love about South Florida  Smiley

There are some big events coming this way in winter. There is always something going on:

THE 18th Annual TREASURE ISLAND SPORT KITE CHAMPIONSHIP Jan 17-18 2015 Tampa Bay Area.
In Orlando we are having the KTAI on Jan 10-12 2015.
Plus the Kiting Tampa-Bay Guys are always into something with smaller reunions in Treasure Island like New Years Day just to mention one of them.

I'm sure many of you from up north comes to Florida running away from the snow, and are taking advantage of specially the KTAI event that for 2015 is going to be in Orlando Florida.

I'm all set for these events. If any of you guys are coming please let me know. so we can meet at any of these events  Smiley

T-shirt, shorts... and we had snow... I love this guy...   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Had to use snow blower the other day.  Then we got warm up of 50 degrees and everything melted.  I hated seeing white everywhere.  Just wasn't ready for it.  Now Jorge fly's a "White" stunt kite...  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( .

That 360 was really nice.  The field for night flying is crazy.  You lucky to have the space to fly and with Lights... next video I want to see you on your knees,thanking the Wind gods for a place to fly... Huh Huh Huh
Normally at night there is little wind to fly a stunt kite. That's why I like to keep various UL and SUL kites in my bag.

Duende 220 UL at Night
