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".

This episode of Back to the Old School features the Flexifoil Psycho: the frantic little brother of the Stranger. I bought my Psycho (the yellow/purple version) when i saw the VHS at a kiteshop. My other Psycho (Red/Blue) was a gift from Pierre Terbogt. Both kites are modified (turbo bridle/yoyo stoppers/tailweight/w-trickline) to make it a bit less crazy in normal flight and to add some modern trick capabilities. The video was shot on the lovely Terschelling beach. Enjoy!

I've had a lot of fun with Psychos over the years.
Are the modifications that you've done available to try?
