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".

Wow.

Maybe my new years resolution is to use my airwave zero in zero wind. Looks like great exercise.

What lenght lines are you using?

Thanks. I will make up a shorter line set. I have been flying 50' in very light winds.

Hi Wagner: 50 is ok. The idea of shorter lines is mostly for the ceiling height when flying indoors. I also have a 20' feet and a 50' for outdoor use. Remember the shorter the lines the less time to react.

Jorge and I seem to have similar tastes in kites!

The AirWave replaced both my iTrix and 4D as my truly-no-wind flyer.   I was very surprised with its abilities - nice little kite.  I've never flown mine indoors however.

Great video.  I think you have really captured the progression here - although I am amazed at how quickly you do it.
