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

Hmmm ... lam ... Maybe the old school SD in SSUL frame is a great design? Due to it's overall Neutral tricking capability ... Why more turtle in 0.5 mph winds .... SD and not Fearless ...

It's an amazing kite for sure. 

On the fearless SUL - use the reverse turbo bridle, it's just incredible and it flys and tricks in near nothing with a solid feel.

Yes ... at one time I owned (Cool SDs ... for competition ... a back-up on each wind level ... they just require more WORK  Sad than the Fearless ... but not that much more work ...  Wink Wink Wink

That is not Lam flying, just FYI.

That is a guy named Luca(?) from Italy who used to fly SD's.
