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".

Started off early and just could not let the day go.  Got to get some lights. 

Surpise ending...

Ok, I'm not gonna lie... I LOLed at the nosedive in the water at 442. Bahaha. The recovery was GOLD though!
The 540s are still looking better and better everytime. Now it's time to do them next to eachother when we mess around with more pairs stuff. Eh? Eh?   Tongue

I love the look of the WMUL against the water. (love the standard too, dont get me wrong). Can't wait to see the matching Standard coming!

Wow - your video and audio were fantastic , and relaxing - I am in Arkansas , no winds here 103 deg to 113 deg for a while now .
I am really curious , your letting nice expensive kites dip and submerge in water ------------- what sort of care do you provide to your kites
after flying to combat mildue and moisture....................  yor talent for flying is wonderful.

Afterwards I hang them in garage on a clamp and wash em'  with windex........  The lake is fresh water No Salt, however if you don't care for the sail it will color bleed.  No Winds.. Watch my next Video with Ocius Sul... shorten the lines from 100' 100lb. to 50' 50lb.  You'll be flying..
