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".

It would help to know where you are. I'll fly with you anytime you want if you come to Chicago, or if I'm in your area. Tell us a bit about the kite you got and how much experience you have with it.

The quad-line is easier to learn than a dual-line, IMHO, and doesn't require as much physical energy to do tricks, but there are 10 times more things you can do with a dual-line. If you're young or still not physically beaten down, learn both.

Whatever you do, smile, have fun and don't forget to breathe.

If you have any questions, no matter how trivial they may seem to you, ask.

I got into 4 lines for the same reason. I just wanted something to fly when the winds went into double digits. I started out with the FullVent, but now have 3 more for when the winds are a little calmer. Although Revs are easier to learn, there's still years of learning fine control, and even flying along side others to explore.

Quad-line is all about very fine precision and control, until you start flying the Speed Series Revs, but you still can fly them slow, smooth and precise. You will find that Quad-line becomes an addiction, because of the ability to constantly improve your skills. Also don't be afraid to use weights and make other modifications. The game never ends.

Welcome. What part of California? If you are in/close to the Bay Area, there are often quad fliers at Shoreline Park in Mountain View on the weekends.

Here's a brief video of a Chinese Rev clone that I often fly.
I've bought a few dozen Revs, but have found this humble kite is a very sweet low wind flier.

Beauty. So peaceful and serene.

Let It Be, indeed.

Thanks for that.
