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.

Hello:

For the last couple of weeks I started to fly my kites again, but Summer days are no wind or rainy days. I'm a low wind kite fan. Most of my kites are rated UL or SUL. People that know me knows how trick addicted I am with Stunt kites.  Smiley and that part hasn't changed...  Grin

So here I'm Sharing a video from last week's session. I was Flying my ATM SUL. Hope you like it...

Thank You.

Good to see a new video Jorge. Sold a few kites awhile back to get some Sky Burner and Lam kites. The one I regretted selling the most was a Premier Nighthawk. Couple weeks back I lucked out and got to replace it with a brand new one. The videos of you flying a Nighthawk are outstanding. Fella asked a couple days ago why I replaced the Nighthawk before the Addiction. I referred him to your videos. My grand kids still have a Addiction. That kite makes me laugh my ass off.

I still have all my kites. The nighthawk I was flying is not mine. It's from a friend. but it's a great kite to fly. Trying to get back to kite flying in a constant way. Its a great way to exercise while having fun. This Saturday I'm going to fly again. I'm taking my camera so I can make another video.  Soon I'll have another video posted here....  Smiley

Thanks. I Agree. Normally SUL kites doesn't have the mass for tricks. This Kite is an SUL just because it has a lighter frame than the UL version. but is not a true SUL Kite. But Still I love it how it flies.
I removed one on the brass weights from the tail and had the top lines of the brittle one more knot shorter. That helps to keep the kite flying in such a low wind condition. Also Managing to keep the kite in low wind condition is a great way to do cardio while having fun.

 I also have a SkyBurner Aura UL and Solus. UL. that will fly well in those conditions. I will do tricks too in a gentle way but I wanted to fly something more aggressive that day.  Smiley
