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 is the vid that got me into trick kiting.

If only I'd realised how difficult it is to fly at anything like Tim's level,
 I might have saved myself a lot of time, but then we all need something to strive for.

Surely one of the great kite promotion vids.

That was a very classic video of the Deepspace taken probably a few years ago? If possible try to find Trick or Treat, the Kite DVD featuring mostly the Deepspace and a few Geminis. Very inspiring. Tim Benson did 13 yoyos in one of the sequences Huh

Til then I've not seen any videos of Tim flying the Deepspace until recently when I did a random search in Youtube. This looks much more recent. Pretty short (11 seconds only) with Tim doing a double axel take off.

Flat spin take off

If you haven't seen Trick or Treat, get it!  It's just amazing to watch.
