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".

Very impressive flying, such consistent spacing of the kites.
It's one thing to fly like that with a Quad team, quite a bit more difficult to do it with dual line kites.

Thanks!
We trained a lot, and had regular stick sessions on Thursday. Where you practice the routine with a stick ficgure kite at the end of a spar.
That routine was timed with music, but not the one in the video.

Paolo,

Great flying.

Two observations:

  • Video technology has improved a lot over the last 21 years.
  • Were you #2 from the right from the front or the back?

Iím nr 2, the only one with a hat...depends. At the beginning from the left.
That video comes from an old videotape! Probably Hi8. :-)
We competed in several EuroCup, never made it to the top against teams like AIRKRAFT, LungTa, DustDevils (still have their shirt) and others. But we had loads of fun.
That was one of our last comp. the night before the comp our nr3 felt sick, we took him to the hospital and he had surgery that same night. I donít remember what it was but wasnít a joke.
