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".

After conversing with Dodd himself I finally got the bridle right on my Desire UL and got it up in the air, this is my first flight, My wife filmed and put the video together for me. Really love this kite now that it's set up right, makes you feel like every thing you do is in slow motion!!

Always fly a big kite, The louder the better. That way others can't hear you screaming as it's dragging you down the field!

Nice! Thanks for sharing. And thank your wife for producing the video.

You should seriously consider going the the kite competition in Coldwater, Mich. next July (assuming they have it next year) and entering novice kite ballet.

Hope I get a chance to meet you at the IKE event in a couple weeks!

@Sky, I'm going to try to make it up there, depending on how work is, not to mention the 150 mile drive lol
@wayner  Grin is right, I can't help but to smile when flying this kite.

I had it out again today for a bit, I was goofing off trying to force a stall out if it, it stalled alright, I didn't have to take a step and this thing hovered like a rev for about twenty seconds(when the wind shifted lol) Very kool "non trick" UL kite
