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".

It's been awhile, but I used to use index cards for both dacron and the lighter trailing edge material.  The trailing edge shape wasn't just a simple fold, as I wanted the edge concealed, so I came up with the folded card for the convoluted folds.

This was the first quad line video, ever, that I watch from top to bottom. Usually my brain just doesn't stay attached to them, but this one had my jaw on the floor the entire time.

Just think a year from now you might be posting as Superaxle instead of Axident  Grin.

 Wink By experience I can just say, do what ever you can and do even a bit more than you can and never listen to anyone saying that you should not. It's only you who know where your limit is and sometimes you do not know it as you has never gone that far. But don't stop yourself before you have tried if you can and keep encouraging yourself to go a step further than you think you can.

After 6 surgeries and three months laying in bed with a permanent stretch on one leg the doctors carefully started telling me I should never expect to walk normally again. At that time I could not even get out of the bed. So it was very hard for me to accept what the doctors told me. So I argued a bit with them as it for me felt like they gave up even before ever tried to help me.
Long story short. I followed what I wrote above as this is how I live my life. 6 years and four surgeries later the had taken out the last pieces of metal which they told me all had to stay in my bones to make them stable. And another three years I could run. I could and still can't sprint. But I recovered to a level no one believed would be possible.

So continue what you are doing and go even further. Don't listen to much to other peoples opinions. It's the only way to recover and learn know your limits.

'Axident' could easily have something to do with my accident. But it actually do not. It's related to a German word for a seden printing method. Anyway it would be great in one year to be able to call yourself Superaxle.

When I replace my Prism Zephyr the Superfly UL is #1 on my short list. It'll be awhile though.Got a lot to learn and the Z is a great kite.I Think you were wise to get such a nice kite to start up again. Follow the Dodd Gross tutorials on you tube. I got into kiting last Oct. hoping it would help in recovering from a accident in 2012. It's the only thing Iv'e been able to do that takes care of mind, body and soul at the same time. Doctors and family have been against it. Still have to get injections once a month to calm the spasms in my back.The last few weeks for the 1st hour or so of flying I can slowly jog to the kite and back. That's a huge deal for me. This kiting thing is something I really needed. A lot. Just think a year from now you might be posting as Superaxle instead of Axident  Grin.
