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 nice! Is the song from Within Temptation?

Looks like you're flying with pretty long lines... is that like 90ft?

Thanks Radian!

Yes, they are the Within Temptation, and the song is Blue Eyes, i love this song.

In this video i used the Horizon Skyline 30 metres 75kg becouse the beach is short, but usually i use 40/42 metres lines.

I think that long lines, like 40 metres, are better in every wind becouse the wind windows is more big and the pilot has more control on the kite, especially in strong wind when the kite is speedy. But 30 metres are enought, with a good hand, for to do every tricks with a funny flight in 20/25 kmh wind speed.

Sorry for my bad english! Sad
