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".

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

I did this video when Dodd Gross was promoting dual line kite flying with one of his designs. " Skydog Jammin' "

This kite is capable of doing all types of tricks even the high-end ones without braking the Bank. Smiley

Nice pics Steve!  That pair started life as Exile 2PT SULs and were later converted to modded UL prototypes with P100 frames.  One then had its LE and nose replaced as the final Std prototype with an all Nitro frame.  You can tell the Std is in the back with a narrower nose, straighter LE and full size upper APA connectors.

Those are the only two sails now with that layout. I still have one set of the early builds and the rest have all been retired.

Thanks for posting.  Smiley

Hey Joe...
Great looking kite ! You've come a long way, my friend. I remember your summer of the 540. I think you've got that one licked, now, as well as a number of others ! Good on you... not many stick with it for as long & intensely as you have. It's got to be very satisfying for you to go out to the field now, and tear it up !
I look forward to many more years of your videos of learning & perfecting new things.

I'd be tempted to put a tail on this square kite.

There is a line coming from the top left corner, top right corner, and the center.  They all meet to make the tow point.   The line that goes to the center of the kite can be adjusted for length.

I'm new to kite building, so is this what you'd use to make that line adjuster?

Sept. 7,2009.  I think this was Sunday... Jon had just given me the Delta Drive to fly the Wednesday before.

 I flew Dave's for awhile that night ..First time ever on Stunt Kite... I flew a Symphony 1.8 Foil kite the week before.  Jon handed me this kite that night to play with... The beginning  Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Huh Huh Huh Huh$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$  Cool Cool Cool Kiss Kiss
It has been a fun journey to say the least.  Flying is a very healthy hobby.  Enjoying the outdoors is something we all share.  I never take it for granted.  I enjoy being out at the Beach the aura is what matters...

My first real day alone.  Wasn't even sure I set the kite up right...
