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
Very intersting trick
watch 4 axles how Barresi made.... Start on 43 sec

-2 on one side
-2 on other side

I think it is a part of commet trick. I'm not sure when it use, and does it use second pop. looks so fast.

It's Axel, as we all know. Don't get me started on Comète - zippy8

The flying at :43 looks like multiple flat spins to me.  He was in control the whole time.

Starting at :35 he does and axel spiral really nice and flat (not a pin wheel since he pulls for each succesive axel).  At :43 he's doing hard axels right into a snap stall.  Verrrrry hard to time right. You have to pump drive into the kite between the axels and stalls in a slit second.  I've been trying it since I first saw it and haven't succeeded yet.

It looks like a failed attempt at a pin wheel followed by a few failed attempts at side slides.
Ya gotta love that "all in" flying style.  Cheesy

Yeah, he was failing in perfect choreography...


The great thing about ballet flying is you can come up with a lot of "whatever works" to fit the music. This stuff was completely intentional.

Oh, I guess it helps if I turn on the sound.  Cheesy
I didn't realize it was a ballet.

Yeah, i almost always watch kite videos with the sound turned off. I know John flies good ballet, so I hit the volume key.
