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".

YES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for posting this.

Have been thinking about this for ages and was always kind of worried that I had never heard anyone talk about it or seen any footage along these lines... like it was done only on an underground basis away from most sane people.

7M High Aspect FBs?!?!  Huh  Zoinks!! 

The Euros do so love itty bitty inlets on some of their foils  Wink

Thanks again.

ATB,
Sam

That is too cool.

Never got a really good perspective on line lengths, what maybe 200 feet? More?

What a sight - thanks

     I'm flying my 3 meter at 130 feet and it looks to be more than that by a good stretch.   Tom
