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.

Does anyone know Andre Babick.  I have a video of him flying from around 1997 flying a Synchro indoors.  He is fantastic.  Flys perfectly with great timing to the music.  I can't find anything on him.  Would like to see his videos on YouTube if possible.

Turn to page 23 of your 1998 Prism catalogue for a small picture. Waddya mean you don't have a copy ?

He was backed to some extent by Prism or their distributors in Germany and I once judged him at an event in Cuxhaven right at the end of the 90s. He flew an Illusion and ended the routine with 4 broken spars.

Any video that might exist of his heyday are likely to be postage stamp sized. You might be better off asking at Drachenforum.

That sure looks like the guy.   The videos I have are ona dvd made by Scanners Digital Solutions of Newport Oregon  I like this style.  It is very slow but very precise.  But there are no kites like the Synchro out there now.  Ones that just float on the ether.  Everything is much faster now

I am going to see if I can capture the video I have.  It is over an hour and half long.  If I will share.

Windpower Sports (Corey Jensen).

There are 5 left.

You can search on the site for Millennium as they are buried.

The one shown above is my favorite.
