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".

I think those Red Bull logo ones are Blackbirds. I might be mistaken though.

I would like to know what kites the pairs fliers were using: the White/Plum/Something or Other ones. Those are beautiful and seem to handle so smoothly.

Yeah, amazing control almost to the point that quads can produce and so incredibly relaxed and smooth! Blew me away. Had to post it.

Nice flying, too much talking. And too bad about the bad dental work...

I've found a real appeciation for the talent of pairs and team fliers since trying it a few times with a friend. Just playing follow the leader is tough.

You're right Jim. That's the BlackBirds kites of the Red Bull Kiteforce Team (Numata Yasumasa, Richard Debray, Mathieu Mayet, Ramlal Tien).

The pair "Courant d'Air" is using "Fury kites" from Kite Related Design (Carl Robertshaw).

I tried to make that sail pattern on the Fury colourizer - not possible, so if they are furies, they are very custom...
