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".

Great action on that one, what were the winds? I only see those normally at festivals where they are kept on shorter lines to avoid conflicts with people walking around.

Anyone else has a video of a Bol rocketing up into the sky? Just love the way it looks spinning up!

It was really awesome, flying line was about 60 to 70m as for the bridle line length I'll leave that to Kevin to answer  Wink

Bridles are around 20 foot, nice spin rate. Ask Kent for one, he can get these from me....
