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".

Aoxomoxoa
From the Urban Dictionary and most of
Old Timers here (I don't think we mentioned it lately):

Perfectly lived out today on my new-to-me Mamba UL.


That you Ken McNeill and Rx8Doc.

Had to think back about this and realized I've had three of these. N
The first was on a late Spring evening with a Beetle.
The second was early Spring afternoon on my first time out with my newly obtained Mojo UL.
And yesterday with my newly arrived Mamba UL.
Lots of hours in between.  Always coming away invigorated, but never at that level of self-actualization that is Aoxomoxoa.
Still smiling! Smiley

He brought his new (first in the states) Black Arrow

He was on fire with it:

Yeah I have to question #7

Quote from: Urban Dictionary
If you enjoy buzzing noisy stunters on the beach, you wouldn't understand, but if you've found the pleasure of a simple, reliable single-line delta, you might find AoxomoxoA

When you become one with the wind & the kite while flying a multi-line kite you've found Aoxomoxoa. IMO it takes a full body & mind state. I can't say I've experienced more then a meditative state while watching an SLK on the breeze. 

If the author has been distracted by the buzzing of a stunter then they have not found Aoxomoxoa. (See #2)

Not really, it happens despite your surrounds or recreational medications. You don't need your iPod cranked,  it's just you the wind and your kite. The Blue Angels could buzz you and you'd never notice.
And yes it could be a SLK or Quad.
It's just Aoxomoxoa!
