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".

Thanks! Bt, I have sunglasses that has a built in video camera, although the video quality is not the greatest it is very convenient Smiley
Sunglasses w/built in video cam!!??!!....that sounds cool....more info please.
As for flying I was very lucky to start flying in the early`90s at Vanier Park in Vancouver....Ray Bethel`s home field. There were a couple other folks flying 2 at once but of course Ray did 3. I was (and still am) flying revs and fighters most of the time but being on the same field as him was priceless. Moved from Van late `90s and started flying 2 at once with a couple of Beetles (good hardy crashers) with the original rev 2 handles and remembering (lol) what advise Ray had passed on about multiple kite flying. Crashed and crashed and then it started to click. Bought a couple of Alpha+`s and use older rev 1 handles. I also have one lineset about 3 ft. shorter than the other. I don`t do it very often, but flying 2 dualies at once is a real pleasure. Highly recommended!!
One thing for folks to do is to make a handle out of a piece of old broomstick or doweling, attach some eye hooks and a couple of leaders and fly your single dualy with one hand and then the other...if you like it get a pair of matching kites....very important.... a quad set of lines and adjust....figure out what style handles works best and you`re on your way.

Thanks:)  I've actually had 3 kites up at once for..............a few seconds  Cry . Adding the third ups the ante quite a bit. I mean you're attaching kites to other parts of your body that weren't meant to be. I need to grow a beer gut so I can get better leverage for the third kite Smiley

That has got to be a great hand/eye coordination builder. Perfect choice of music too, "Flight of the Bumble Bee" ... LOL

Thanks   Cheesy
