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.

Hi,

Managed to get a weekday off from work and since the local park is almost empty, decided to shoot 3 separate dual line videos of completely different nature and flying styles. All videos are HD enabled.

Cosmic TC - Your run of the mill usual kite trick video

CTC with CTC - Kitehouse Cosmic TC


Tricktail STD - Change of pace, some completely old school style kite-chi

No School Like Old School - Tricktail Standard


L'Atelier Lynx Feather - Ultra short line urbanized slop

Rough and Tumble - L'Atelier Lynx Feather


Enjoy (Hopefully)  Smiley

Thanks

First... some really nice flying, there. I especially liked the TT video, I've got to fly one of those someday ! Keep those videos coming...

And Thief, any chance of a link to that AP video ? I can't think that I've ever seen it.

Thanks guys. It feels nice being able to film and do what I enjoy Smiley. Some of the videos (especially the Lynx Feather one) was heavily edited to mask all my crashes hahaha. I tried to make it a point to have a particular segment with some interesting flying as long and uncut as possible as I thought it'll lend more credibility to the flying, as opposed to doing a move <snip>, do another move <snip>.

As for the Andy Preston video, I believe you are referring to the Stranger Kite? These 2? Kiting Below Horizons is just pseudo name I came up with. Apart from the Andy Preston video, the Nirvana flagship video towards the end where their fliers flew below the bridge was also the inspiration for that.

Flexifoil Stranger Video Part 1

Flexifoil Stranger Video Part 2


Hope to do more videos that is unique enough in the future as time and wind permits Smiley
