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".

hi everyone,thanks for kind welcome,2day,me and b-13 got on our spot,as a beginner the first trick I've mastered is the pancake to fade.i remember when b-13 was initiating it i wasnt in the kite life but when i saw the hypnotist in a fade it was too beautiful i couldnt resist,so i ask him to learn me how to fly,he taught me everything,how to stall,a loop,turtle,backflip,HOW TO LAND WITHOUT CRASHING!!,how to pop and when to slack...everything.for me now fly is a new life,its only you and the wind. Cool

He could have been a great flyer if he just listen to what i say sometimes lol
He is doing right but just want to have the tricks done before learning the basics  Tongue
I'm just here to avoid him errors i did when i started out.
Again welcome here and you'll get better advices here than from me  Wink (little thoughts and thanks to those who helped me when i started myself)

Welcome dub

Here's a link to Randy Greenways video site on kite trick tutorials.

 http://vimeo.com/album/1622897

I found his tutorials to be helpful once I got some basics down.
