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".

At a recent kite festival we found time and wind to shoot a new garden chair video. Don´t expect too much of the flying :-)
Shot and edited by Jesper, flown by me (Martin).

Just watched a bunch of mama74 video's...Thanks helped me see  Huh ..Keep my arms and hands at my side during fade's ... Great looking roll up's on the video I watched...  I for one appreciate's guys who fly like that.  I need to see what can be accomplished after a few years of flying.  It's scrarycrazy ........... Some of you guys are not Human.  Reflex's and calmness ...

I reflected after watching and realized.  I no longer panic doing an axel ..I am much much more in control and less movement ..quick hand movements.  Can't wait to be able to apply it on these kinds of tricks and pleasure's...

Mama is a very good example of how it is meant to done. No wasted movements, with sharp accurate timing.

It's funny... there is all this talk of "make sure you move your feet" ... and then we see a video like this... Huh I don't know how Martin does this. I still have to move my feet to get into a fade... I guess it's all about practice and timing with sharp hand movements like Obi said. Great vid... I dug the dead launch from the chair.. Really!!! Cool Huh

That's not the same video that was here earlier.
Looks like some beautiful conditions to fly in.
The Yo-Fade from the chair was way cool.

Well, it does make it easier... moving your feet. It also makes it easier if you have the kite heavily weighted  Smiley I can´t make the kite pitch this fast without extra weight. On the downside, there´s a lot of momentum you need to be able to control.

I'm not worthy - you have removed my one excuse for considering taking up learning to fly a Rev (that is, you can do it from a chair)!  Smiley
