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".

In horizontal flight -
Half Axel then wait until the nose goes high away and slightly past 90  degrees (nose slightly opposite the original line of travel) then hit the hand that was the bottom hand and simultaneously - Walk or run towards the kite to provide slack while it rotates 540 degrees around for the Taz Grin

You'll have to play around with the different inputs depending on the kite and wind conditions.

Good luck and have fun.

My pleasure Dano. And my thanks to Randy as well. That's where I've learned almost every trick I know.

If its any help I found that when learning the Taz I was doing the 2nd pop too early - the key for me was to wait until the nose had gone sufficiently high that the part of the sail from the standoff to the nose was parallel with my line of sight (hope that makes sense  Roll Eyes. *Lots* of slack too.
