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".

Cellphone shot....more pix later on when i make it home...

5' on top....then ~8'.....then the 11'.....
weird winds so at one point the 5' dropped below the erest and the line got wrangled into the tails.....just spun like a top....
Cannot wait for some clean wind...

I am also planning on making some banners to add onto the line as well...~10' long or so.....

They look great!

I trialed my flowtails today, the wind was really gusty and stupid but I got a few quick pictures:





They were fine when the wind was steady, but as soon as it started to drop or gust or change direction they went a bit funky...they did the same when I flew them singly too though.  Their maybe a steady breeze tomorrow off the river so I'll take a video and post if it works out!
