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".

there are some amazingly well executed combinations in the video. whoever was flying, very well done sir.

the kite too looks impressive. at least from the one video it appears very neutral in balance, going deep enough into the turtle but doesn't seem nose heavy, and it looked to have a very even rotation rate.

would love to have a go on one.

Thorsten Axman as reported by jaydub on FA.

A well known flier and for good reason.

IIRC Thorsten was also the pilot in the Black Pearl vid.

Different Thorsten in the BP vid, which was my mistake - Mikus not Axmann (except I'm not absolutely sure it's Thorsten M flying in that one either)  Undecided
