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".

Every time I try a back spin with my nirvana sul,
My bridle line gets caught around the bottom of the
center spine. I can do them just fine with my Zephyer
Does anyone have any suggestions or
Tips

You need to add some keeper lines. It's just a piece of bridle line that goes between the upper outhaul and lower inhaul. It needs to be short enough to keep the bridle from reaching around the tail but not so short it effects the function of the bridle.

you can see the keeper line in this video, twice mentioned briefly. you will notice it is of such a length that with the bridle in its flying position, the keeper line has just enough length to remain slack. as the bridle moves around to different positions, you never want the keeper line to become taught. on this bridle the keeper line is black, where the rest is white.
