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".

Nice one!!

At 0.25 sec you go from a deep turtle to a fade position. It looks like you give a little pop to go to the fade position??

no, it's a deep backflip followed by the second pop of a two-pop-yoyo

Yeah, have to agree. This or the "AVFFF" which not long ago was simply called an over rotated flick flack. RandyG posted a video of he and I flying the Transfer Xt.r when they first came out and there are several "AVFFF's" on that video. I've been flying close to 20 years now and re-nameing tricks happens all the time but with a little research you will find a lot of the tricks  newer flyers think are new in fact have been done before and already have names. No big deal really, it's just kind of funny to us "older" guys.

Also have to agree with John. This looks like a controled crash into a nose launch. I'm not cracking on the flyer, I like doing the nose launch myself but I never thought to nose plant the kite first, I guess due to my competition days. You pull that move in a comp and you will get hit with a crash by the judges. Out flying for fun though, no issue, it's just fyling  for the reason most of us if not all fly kites, it's  fun.

I'm going to be flying on the beach for a few days and will see how much sand i can "flick" after a "Nosepick". Now that the term is in my head, I know I'll be thinking it.  Smiley

A controlled landing, whether on the nose or tips is a good thing. Something like this would have worked in a comp if I could have spent 5 minutes with the judges beforehand so they would "understand" what I was doing. The system was just never intended to foster innovation. Good thing I was a mediocre flyer and innovation was generally far from my mind.  Cheesy

Thanks for your attention - Please donīt try this trick at high-wind!!! Here itīs less than 2 mph - As you can see: itīs a very soft and slow landing and you need line-tension all the time - double rolled and some variations will follow  Cool - And of course: some more crazy trick stuff will follow too - May the mighty god of the wind fall asleep again!!! Amen
