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.

So, here is my third video... I hope you all like it.  Wink and if not... well, that's okay too... I hope Vertigo will like it though!  Smiley Smiley Feel free to leave constructive critisizm or un-constructive.. either way, I'm a big boy. I can handle it.

I have been trying to get the jacobs ladder lately and I just learned how to back spin... kinda... Cool Cool I think that learning the proper way to half axel was a huge break for me. (and I'm still working on that) I believe that I even have an attempt at a taz in the video...

Anyway, Enjoy! ... or not... It's up to you... I like everyones videos!!!!  Grin Grin

Nice Flying.  I hope by the end of the summer to be at that level.  Your trick  combinations are great.  I hate the flying spot  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Loved the music works well with the theme.... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

KEEP POSTING !!!  Can't comment on anything I can't do.  Nor would I.  Like your other vid's I'll be re -watching.  Need to learn the cascade and routate my Lazy susans..

Thanks, and I really appreciate the help. I really like the WM. It took a bit to get used to. The only kite I've ever tricked is my Talon and the WM fly's very different, so getting used to it took a few times. I'll PM ya in response to your PM.

Thanks for the comments and encouragment. I think I am finally starting to get better.

I'm definitely not an accomplished pilot, but from everything I seen you missed certain parts due to the lack of slack in your lines. When you come out of the Jacobs Ladder try taking a step forward or get your hands forward. What really helped me was trying to have my mind thinking/set one step ahead of what the kite was doing. Hope that makes sense.

What I didn't see was the SUN in Seattle.  Wink Cheesy


I have to admit... I am with Norm here... I didn't see the sun that day either... well, actually as soon as I packed up to leave for the day the sun came out not 5 minutes later... Figures...  Wink Wink

Thanks for the input Norm, I will keep that in mind... that is kinda what I had thought... "more slack Shane"... I will work on it and hopefully be ablt to get more than one or two rungs on the JL.... I think that the Taz needs all kinds of slack... but I will work on my half axel before I decide to try those for real.

Thanks Vertigo, I think you will have no problem keeping up with me... I honestly couldn't do a JL at all two weeks ago... and the back spin (barrel roll)... came as a fluke. I hit it by accident while trying to axel-fade, but was able to see what I had done and repeat it... I also can't cascade my lazy susans.. I think i might work on that a bit today. Thanks for the encouragment and keep yours coming as well.

We should try to collect wildlife.. I bet together we could get most of the endangered species out there. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
