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".

There are three days of flying.  First is at the Beach Friday Night at 6:00pm..Alone with music.  In the back ground is a wedding at the pavilum away from me. 
Then Saturday we flew with Jon at a local event.  Wind Sucked worse thatn the day I was alone. 
Finally Sunday wind picked up. Met a new guy a week ago he showed up with Nice Octopus he said he got it in Japan. Huh  Never saw a small version.  Huh Huh Huh

Alsop got a person to film some nice half axels but wind was over bearing so I added music.. No Popping... I luv that sound. Pop,Pop sssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhm  Pop Pop sssssssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhh.. 

I am all packed up and heading to the Beach now... Vertigo out !!!

Enjoy ...

I can see your flying continue to improve.

When we fly at night in Las Vegas it is a LOT darker.  Cheesy

Very nice!! what was the kite you were using in the first part of the video?

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!

Hey there...
Some real solid progress, that Widow Maker agrees with you. I think I only knew how to stall and slide after 2 years of flying. Your 1/2 axels are looking really good, I expect a Cascade will be coming soon. The Solus was a champ at the Cascade and Backspin, learn those tricks on the Solus, then they'll be easier to figure out on the WM.
Looking forward to seeing what tricks you pull out of your hat in the third year, and don't get distracted by that 4 line stuff, unless you need something to fly when the wind's too high...
