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".

Hi,
Since I started to fly indoor kites, an idea was present in my mind: “Play with kites and play with skates” at the same time. Nowadays the project became a reality.

I hope you like it
Thank you!

Wow! That's taking kites to another level. It might be even harder than kite-surfing. Amazing.

I heard about someone who was trying to get a sport called "figure-kiting" going, but I'm not sure if anything ever came of it.

People, thanks for the comments.
In my article I express the process of learning about this type of combined activity. Is a learning process which I am starting in Argentina for our youth in order to teach that they must to think creatively... That is my point of view!.
I hope this year continuing with step 2...
Thank you!!
