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".

When you get past banging them out, concentrating on the rythm, start doing them in light and variable winds and feel each part of the move. After a while you'll find you can coax them in light winds and handle variable winds too.

Its just practice...

Variable winds can screw up most tricks especially when you're learning. The Comete is actually a trick I can hit well in bumpy winds as long as the wind doesn't just completely stop in the middle of the trick.
