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".

Great tutorial and the Nirvana is always a pleasure to look at.

(My daughter doesn't understand why guys like cars so much. I tell her it's about form and function. Not only does a car with great style look nice but its performance is a big part of that equation. The Nirvana is the same sort of deal. Great kite. Now if the rain would only stop...)

This is a fundamental exercise that very few fliers, whether newbie or old hand, spend enough time practicing.

Thank you Martin for shining a spotlight on it with this tutorial.

A tip stab for me, is probably the most dramatic trick ever.
There is nothing like flying down from the top of the window full speed and snapping the kite into a monster stab....
Hands down my fav trick.... i have trouble nailing them still... but when i do... wow.... i impress myself. lol
