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".

This was yesterday.  The wind was strange.  I put up my Jordan 50 and then brought it down to untangle the tails. 

When I face the water.  The wind is out of the North.  In my videos when you see the blue and white tops.  The wind is right out of the south over the water..

When it does come from the North.  It has to go over the trees and buildings.  So it some times is a pain.  Comes and goes...

I did some quick video of the half axel... The other day wind was low.  I was Std. But just stayed with the rhythm of hands and step forward...

Wind was too inconsistent for a good video yesterday.  I don't have a cameraman.  I don't like the flying on the video just wanted to emphasis the sound.   One thing for sure No Sound it ain't like mama74..

The more I watch this video the more I realize if it weren't for the sound I'd delete it.  It is not the way I am flying it.  I am more smooth and more rhythmic with it.

I know it had a lot to do with the building behind me...no wind
