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? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

You are NOT  HUMAN .....................  I really enjoyed your video... The different angles... "...Forget about it...".  The music  choice was Great.  The complete concept of flying in and out of different objects.  Avoiding TREES  Lips sealed Lips sealed.

The other video with the tricks over and under... Have to watch these videos a few times more...

Thanks for sharing your skills...  You skills are something to be admired....

Sincerely... It's all easier than it looks, the tips and info is going around... Smiley

Biggest thing is the internal calm, casually repeating the same series of maneuvers and asking an exact movement of yourself (straight path in relation to geometry, highly conscious line tension, smooth grading inputs and a calm mind... The space inside each second actually expands, like a working clock disassembled into mid-air... And of course, KILLING the monkey on your back that says *anything* negative about yourself during fly time, positively affirming your purpose for flying and setting achievable goals, while staying open to making amazing moments when the unexpected happens.

I'm hoping that with more "take it outside the box" ideas and presentations, along with the other folks who are already innovating and those yet to arrive, we'll find a bit more access to the mainstream... There's plenty for all, and especially with urban flying, the access opens up almost infinitely.

Great flying as always and the alternative perspectives adds a lot to the video, but...

And of course, KILLING the monkey on your back that says *anything* negative about yourself during fly time, positively affirming your purpose for flying and setting achievable goals, while staying open to making amazing moments when the unexpected happens.

What was Dave doing on your back.  Huh  Hope he's ok and you're still friends.  Wink
