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".

The Prism site had some online tutorials. You can also get the Prism DVD. Tim Benson's Trick or Treat DVD is good too. There's also Dodd Gross's Flight School DVDs.

Some of the Mama74 videos are demonstrations, some are tutorials. The two most recent, backspin and Jacob's Ladder were awesome !

Thanks for the reply.
The tutorials that I need are more complex tricks like the Slotmachine, Multislot, Inverse etc.

No, they don't! I showed them dozens of times to my kites but I still have to yank at the lines to make them do something remotely comparable!






Seriously, I think I learned almost everything from your videos, they came step by step always in the nick of time. Last time you made my sluggish synapses click was in the Yo-Fade tutorial, I could at best achieve a tired fade. So I watched it again (and again...) and just when it said: "Remember, it's all from the wrists!" I saw your fingers lying straight with the tips on the triangles of the straps, which I didn't do up to then. I figured it out: Applied force, length of the lever... Worked immediately, I'm doing it always now. Gives the sudden extra-momentum needed in practically every trick. I saw people doing it quite often, but I thought it was something precision-flying related. Big step for me, small one for mankind.

Thanks, Erik

I am having the same issue. I think my kites have A.D.D. ... Sad

I know this is OT but I wanted to take a second and say Thanks to Randy for doing his vids. They have been my goto place for trick reference and since I fly basically alone, have been a lifesaver.

Likewise, I think Randy & Martin deserve a hearty round of thanks, being that they don't charge for their videos... It is a huge thing to isolated people that are trying to learn how to do tricks. I would still be doing figure 8s and stalls if it weren't for them. The videos that cost $$$ don't come close to teaching how to do a trick, just demonstrate something that can be done.
