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".

No. It may have been James though.

And the original name is thingummywhatdyoumacallitspinningunrolltrick. Only real n00bs call it anything else.

You really don't believe everything anything you read on the INTERNET do you ?  Wink

Here's the removed-for-reasons-unknown link.

Another claimant to the trick by its original name. Bizarrely it is possible for people to independently discover things and simply getting there a day before anyone else neither proves nor disproves a thing one way or the other.

It's a nice trick whatever it's called and whoever got there first.

Mike.

One of the best features about kite flying is not so much about being the first person to invent a new wrinkle and but being one of the people who can actually execute the new invention correctly and then shares the knowledge with someone else. When a new discovery occurs, others try to duplicate the maneuver. If they are successful, they step into the company of the best, and they challenge others to learn the same thing. Most of us share what we think we know and encourage others to learn the new wrinkle. As the new idea spreads through the kiting world, our world of kiting becomes more challenging.

Actually, I have seen Tim eat without a kite of any kind in view.  Cheesy Cheesy

But is he dedicated to stunt kites......  On a scale of 1 to 10 he is probably around 25 or 30.
