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".

Wow. So many things.

The bassist needs to shave......everything.

Way to keep production costs down.

Which one is the "& son?" (I hope it's not the bassist, but it is Europe!)

Like the shark skin suits. The leopard print lapels are so "gauche".

Let me see if I can translate...

We are standing on a beach
My mates and me, all on the beach
My kite's so loud, I cut the leech
To make some noise out on the beach

Chorus:  It's good!  Yes yes!

These kites are flying all around
I smashed my Rev into the ground
It makes a very awful sound
When my kites crash on the ground

Chorus:  It's good!  Yes yes!

You know you’re a kite flyer when you can recognize kites in a music video but not the musicians. (Sorry, I know, wrong thread)

This isn't your new promotional video? A slick move to pump up 'sails'?
The sharkskin suits look fab! Oh, ya man!

Just slightly low budget.....

At 1:45 someone starts walking into the frame in the background and then backs out when he realizes they are filming.
