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".

Went to Metro Beach with Theo "Rookie".  The wind was great for the Widwo Maker Ul.  About ten minutes after video the wind kicked up and storm started to roll in.

Been rough week with high winds.  Over 15 mph for three days...

Had a New Camera man  He shot from a different perspective ...
I picked the Yellow becuase I wanted to have this color contrast...
Hope you like it ..If not it's o.k. also ... picking colors is a personal thing.   Wink Wink

I love that perspective, but sure is hard to keep a kite in frame from those angles, your new camera person did a good job for a first effort. But check your lens, do you have a big finger print right in the middle? sure got some flat shots in a few places when the kite was centered and pointing into the light.

Kite looks great though and nice flying.

WM looks great - nice tricks!  Next time, maybe ask your helper to shoot the video from behind you. That way we can see both the kite and pilot's actions!

Hey vertigo,
When you upload your videos, most of them are not viewable on iPad/iPhone from you tube. I think there's an option to enable/disable it when you upload the video.
