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".

Here is another one super slow motion shot at 120 fps.
First can be found here
Should I make it series?  Roll Eyes

Any suggestions how to make lines more visible (when I can't control the wind and the sun  Undecided ) are welcome

I would be interested in a full series, but is there a way that you can film from behind you so that we can see: (1) the kite and (2) the inputs used to complete the maneuvers?

If that suggestion isn't practical, another idea would be to superimpose an inset window with the hand/body movements (filmed separately from behind) while the kite takes up the main screen. It would require two cameras and some video processing software. Dodd Gross did something like that in his Flight School training although I don't believe they were captured in super-slow motion. There may be better examples, but this one is illustrative:

I've already ordered tripod and waiting it to arrive Grin
But I still have doubts how to film using it because I fly STD kite at its very low wind range (according to my capabilities) and this involves quite walking back... so lets wait and we'll see if I manage to produce something like you described Wink

Still can not afford a camera man to use two cameras at the same time  Roll Eyes

Maybe if you built a rig that could extend behind you... Cheesy

And just to tweak you, you didn't credit the music in this one either. Wink You must really like that soundtrack.

I wouldn't mind seeing more, but especially so if you can work in your hand movements. Good work.

I'm so lazy! It is easy to copy & paste Wink

After you mention the music in previous "Super Slow Motion" I got the idea for different version of the same music. May be it is overly dramatic for the small home made video but YES - Pirates of Caribbean is one of my favorites movies  Cool
