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".

Here is one of our own in a kite buggy video:

Caution: A few naughty words in the "music".
Freestyle kite buggying - Brian Holgate - Freestyle Rider for Peter lynn


I have actually flown that 8.3 m foil used in the video, however, my feet were on the ground and the winds were about 2 mph. That is a lot of foil.  Shocked

That move is called a suicide.  It is where you fly the kite around in a full 360 behind you while the buggy moves in a360 in the opposite direction.  Pretty difficult to do on your own but even more difficult with a tandem attached. Smiley

That is Brian Holgate, local buggier here in Vegas and Team Rider for Peter Lynn Kites.

Nice one handed step over and reverse two wheelers and opposite two wheelers. I wonder where these guys learned those moves?
Man, I wish I could ride like that.  Smiley
