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".

I missed some nice axels,but I need a camera man.  There was a soccer tournament going on the beach and there wasn't a lot of room.  But a bad day at the beach is better than a good day at the office...   Someone asked to see a newbie flying the ocius.  I have to say since flying this kite I am advancing... Finally.  I started last early Sept. and ended late October.  I was able to land... sort of...
I started out thgis year in middle of March... weather permitting.  When I started flying this kite I started to get a better feel for myself and the wind.  Something started to happen.  Seems everytime I fly I know I get better than I was before.  I am more relaxed and in control... This past week has been my break through on half axels and full axels.  I think it's the kite.  It just feels better.  Doesn't really matter I guess as long as I am learning. 

We have three more good months of flying.  Devin thinks I should get a PDUL..I talked to Jon about it last week.  Maybe next week.  I hate the real lite wind.  In the video the wind was a struggle... So maybe the PDUL will do the trick.  I'll fly Devin's on Wednesday... R there any NamVets out there >>>
