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 stop-action, slow-mo, matrix-style video almost blew my mind!  Smiley 

Totally cool.

Am I the only one finding myself wanting at least about 10 seconds of normal scrolling video?

Love the location though, looks totally awesome, I'm interested to see where this kites going to end up price-wise.

No, I'm not keen on the stop/go fast/slow style of video. Nicely flown and very 'arty', but I'd rather have 3 minutes at normal speed showing what the kite really flies like. There was a similar vid for the HQ Chrome and it wasn't much help.

Nice looking kite! I'd be interested to see the price and spec.

No Devin, you're not the only one, this is a very creative video, but I also find the constant super slo-mo a little bit tiring, too much special effects. I liked the Slash video more.

I liked it. It's nice to have a true HD video to view. For you experts it, might be annoying, but for me, a newbie, I liked to see how the kite actually responds and the slack given to get the rotations.

Maybe Prism or someone could redo the frestyle pilot or how to fly videos showing the inputs in HD. I think the clarity and slowmo would really help out the less experienced of us out there.

I love this video. Stunning location and flying captured in high quality video and super slow motion. A very diffent experience to normal kite flying video.

I would compare this to the super slow motion shots I see in F1 racing. Great to see in highlights but not how you want to watch the whole race.  Cheesy
