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".

Those are some of the nicest multilazies I have seen yet I like how nice and flat they stay.  IMO the cynique is just ugly no matter how well its done.  NIce flying though.

That was totally sweet - thanks for sharing it.

I now see the problem with my cynique - I need to take off BOTH my Tilley and my shirt!  Smiley

I'll try it tomorrow - although it is starting to get cold here in the Pacific Northwest.

Oh yeah - the kite has eyes, so I am interested!  Smiley

Alternating lazy-susan rotations but without a visible pause. Can't wait for the backflip to settle and then do a rotation.

Better have some spare Lower Spreaders when first learning Cynique's Smiley

Okay thanks!  I probably would have called it a lazy cascade, but I understand there are purists that would have nothing to do with that name.......Extra lower spreaders.....yes, make sense to me.

HMMM ... have never try tried to master this trick ... notice how each change in direction is NEVER near 12'oclock, more like 2 and 10'oclock ... easier to go the other way at these change in direction end points ... as is suggested.
