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.

Unfortunately camera is a little bit shaky and needs stabilization Sad and some of the tricks are performed very low at the ground and because of backlight are not quite visible.

For sure there is plenty of space for improvement.

I think shooting a good video is no different than tricking your kite. It takes practice practice
practice.

...and in HD nowdays a powerful video editing station Wink It was a painfully slow to edit HD video on my 5 years old home PC  Cry

I didn't liked youtube's stabilizer preview. There were strange distortions in surrounding buildings and I didn't apply it.

Since previous weekend I was thinking that I'm only one for 7.000.000 bulgarians Wink What a surprise to meet a guy in my own town on the same field !?!?! He was not as good as me  Roll Eyes but it was a nice Wink ... so you never know

Flying field ... no Sad the clip is shot at one of the high schools soccer stadiums. I think a gate can be seen at one moment.

Nice video! really nice flying! I've also experimented with a couple of GoPros, the new Hero 2 has a "narrow" field-of-view HD mode with less fish-eye effect, if you mount it on a tripod and try to fly not too high, you can get some really easy-to-watch videos.  Here you can watch a sample:

Nice clip ghfisanotti! I feel envious for the flying field  Undecided

My clip is shot with 1280x720p @ 60fps 170 - because I really like to take advantage of slowing down to 25fps for analysis Roll Eyes
Looking at your clip make me think about using 1920x1080p @ 30fps 127
