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".

I was so excited about getting out there and it was late.. I worried about wind and sunshine...  I put 75' 90 lb. line.  I didn't realize it when I was flying I forgot about it.  I kept trying to get in deeper water but I was short on lines.   Next time I'll change that....  Glad I don't have tides and huge waves to deal with.  Lake St. Clair is a large lake divides U.S. and Canada .  Along the Detroit River which feeds off Lake St. Clair is Canada about 1/2 mile across the river.

Longer lines will prevail...

Had the Pro Dancer sul. also not my first choice... But wind was a huge  factor. 

Gonna get brave at some point and try a 540 over the water... You all know what that is going to be like... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy  Vertigo vs. Aquaman...........

Again as always thanks for the feed back.  You guys are the greatest.  Ask for help and your there.  I surely appreciate it.

  Rob, I can't get over your flying  I really liked... It is just down right beautiful... The video speaks to your skill level and artist values.

Hey Vert...

 Cheesy  I love the way you scared the cr@p out of that seagull @1:35 !  Cheesy

You've got the whole submarine thing, it looks like. One more step towards the kite, and it would totally disappear under water. I don't know if I'd use a ProDancer to fly with the fishes, I generally try to keep the ULs out of the water, just because of my record of breaking kites, even my QPro VV. Twice.
The sunset with the red kite looked great.
