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".

Gemini and, as of yesterday, a new kite from Sweden called the Seven.  It's 100% awesome.

Video???

Yep, that's the plan Steve.  Yesterday was the first fly to get an impression of its performance with an eye to making a video.  I was pretty quickly reassured that a decent video will be quite do-able, so now I just have to get a nice sunny weekend day and sane winds.  Smiley

There's also SoH III to do - that one's going to feature the new pimped Skyshark Gemini.

You would need a rudder on the kayak for that to work.

winds have been so high most of the winter, only a foil and the QPro VV have been out of the bag, but I've gotten a couple of flights on the new Christmas present, Exile standard in P200 framing, I really like the feel of that kite, think it'll be my go to kite this year.
