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 double reverse coin toss has always been hard for me.

Reversing flat spins are hard.

Side slides are hard to master.

And yet your Vapor 360 side slide on the side of a hill is the standard I judge every side slide against.  Huh

Thanks John, but to be accurate that wasn't a 360 side slide. Maybe a 200 or so.  Sad A 360 side slide on long lines that is low and slow, takes a lot more stamina than I've got.  I can feel the burn in my legs as I think about walking backwards up that hill.

Funny thing about side slides and 360's is that you don't actually do anything other than walk backwards. If there's little to no wind, you should be able to virtually lock in in and go as far as you want. I'm not sure why that's so hard. When the kite is up wind I feel like I'm going to panic. "Pleeeeease baby, don't die on me........"
