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'd be interested in someone's opinion at that move as well. 

it unrolls to a brief fade (but didn't catch it) again at 1:37?


I think you got it all right, but it looks to me like the fade at 1.37 isn't a fade, the fade was one rotation before, it looks like the spot you would hit a wap at 1.37

I'm not sure that makes any sence...

I think what is happening here is that he pre rolled the kite before flight. By that I mean he took the kite by hand, not in flight, and rolled it up in the lines a few times in one direction then reversed the roll ups in the other dierection. He then set the kite up for launch, flew up and did the trick. That is about the only way to get a kite rolled up in two different directions IMO, never seen it done in flight, I guess it could be done, I would like to see it. If you do a few roll ups in what we would call the standard way, nose goes backward, away form you, and comes under and back up to complete one roll up, then how would you get the kite to roll up in the opposite direction with out unrolling what you did first.

A trick very much like this was seen on a video about four or five years ago but that kite unrolled forward four or five times the reversed direction and unrolled backwards four or so times. RandyG and I did a Viper video back when that kite came out from Shawn and I did the trick on that video. I also used it in a hot tricks shoot out in St Augustine at SASKC back then. I had to pre roll the kite before flight.

So you roll it one way then loop the bridle around the yo-yo stops and roll the other? Yeah that would take superhuman skills to do in the air.
