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".

Good way to learn getting into the fade is start with the kite nose away on the ground and then gently pull-tug and the kite will rotate around into a fade.  This technique at least teaches you the feel for what it takes to rotate into a fade.   Practice in lighter winds where you kite isn't wanting to blow away when it's nose away.

I think that says volumes. Practicing your tricks in winds that barely fly the kite will help to learn tricks faster. Most of my mistakes revolve around not giving enough slack, and light winds help that a lot. I would imagine that ~5mph would be what to look for. Have fun !

Hey! I noticed you're from bartlett IL. Thats about 40 mins or so outside of Chicago. I live on the gold coast and if you'd like to meet up at one point or another and I can try and help you the best I can, I'd be more then happy to. My days are pretty packed but I'm sure at one point we can find a time for both of us that will work smoothly, if you'd like.

Good luck!

It is good to here about flyers that live in the same area. Being in a gold coast where do you fly? In my area, I was seen no one, not even one person, but there are some "quad" flyers.

Usually (when I have time, which has only been once so far) I'll fly to the beaches that you can only get to by walking so that there aren't more people there, or I'll take the redline then the 147 to northerly island.

I always thought that Northerly Island was overcrawded, but if you say it is a good spot, next time I am in the area, I will give it a shot. Thanks for the advise.

Oh man, don't pass up on this offer of connecting up with Devin! This guy is phenomenal! I'd give just about anything to be able to meet him and learn a thing or three from him. I've learned a ton from his posts and from watching all of the videos with him as pilot-- I can't imagine how cool it would be to learn from him in person. He seems like a heck of a nice guy, too.

This is a fantastic opportunity!!

Devin, let me know when you will be flying in Chicago next time and where, I would love to learn few things from you. I am new to flying and there is no one in my area to fly with or learn from. After reading a lot of posts in this forum everyone says that the best way to learn is from other flyers, so if you still open to the idea, I will take you up on your offer. Thanks again.

Sorry I'm so late in getting back to you. I don't have a list of all the videos-- he just happens to be flying a kite in about a gazillion of the videos I've watched on the forum here and over at YouTube. I did a quick search on YouTube for you to get started (below).

Sidenote to Devin: I had a good laugh when I did the video search. There was one where you were playing your horn (you're really good!!) and it hit me that was the first time I could see your face. By now, I think I could recognize your backside across a football field. ;-)

Madhabitz, thanks again for for the uploads. It is amazing how you can watch this videos over over, also what he can do with the kites is just unbelivable. Thanks again.

Lol Madhabitz, thanks.  Smiley To be honest that was a god awful recording though haha! That was a under rehearsed community group, bad arranging (someone in the band arranged that to make the program longer), and me and dana being the soloists (that was high school...) didn't get the music until about 4 days a head of time bahaha! The 'good old days,' right? lol. I've been trying to get Katy (friend who uploaded that) to take it down for years. Hopefully I can get some video of my quartet/rectials/studio recitals durring our performances this year. We've been planning some big stuff for quite a while and we have a really talented studio this year (big though... 12 people  Huh ! )

THE ONE- sorry I haven't replied to your pms yet. I have a rhythm&intonation and conducting exam so I'll reply tonight. Hope to see you around soon!

Devin, it would be great if you could get some of your music online. I love that stuff!
