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".

Hey All,
I've been playing with camera angles and after-zoom (is that legal for VF ?(using zoom in the video editor ?)) in an effort to capture some video for VF17. I came up with a bunch of clips that were all too short before the kite left the frame, so going out this weekend, hoping to capture that perfect 90 seconds. Well, here's what I came up with last week, if you have time to watch, enjoy !

Thanks, Tempest. And thanks to anyone who's ever made & posted a video, whatever kind of flying I can do was learned from them...
And people's suggestions when I post mine...

Great flying there Rob.  Not sure if your doing it intentionally but the lazy susans to short side slides are cool.  I've been trying axel to side slide transitions myself and they look cool when you can axel and slide across the entire window then pop into a turtle for a lazy or two.  HOpefully in the next few weeks I can get some good solid footage in frame for my entry Cheesy

Hey CA...
Thanks... my flying has improved alot since I've been bringing the camera to the beach, it allows me to compare it to people's videos who can really fly, and figure out what I'm doing wrong. Also, people post suggestions and point out what I'm doing wrong (Huge help, as long as I remember it the next time I'm out...). When you fly alone, it's an invaluable tool.
Most of my slides are on purpose, it's one trick I think I've got down. Hope you get that footage you're looking for, I came up empty handed again this weekend...

Depends on your mood, but I find myself in the mood to listen to Jimi alot....

Thanks for liking the flying, and the wind was right around 10mph, +/- a few. I can trick this kite from a little under 5mph to 15mph+ and it's easy to keep up with. It took a long time to get used to, but I don't have a better all around trick kite than this one.
