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".

Very cool and rhythmic!

This video was shot in 2005. Any idea what kind of kite he is flying? I'm guessing about 10-12' line? At times, he appears to be pulling quite hard and he's a pretty big guy!

John Baressi posted a link to this on FB - I think it is also on KiteLife that may have more detail.  Likely, he was there so he may have more info as well.

I don't know where I read it, but the kite is a modified Prism 3D.  I was impressed with the obvious use of quite a bit of power, but also complete control. 

In particular, those round-house to flick flacks back to back really blew my mind.
