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".

The blind leading the blind. 

I think they were able to do these tricks but didn't really understand what they were doing.

There is some good flying in there even by todays standards.

That's from a training tape that Spectra Sports included with some of their kites.

I think I have a couple of copies floating around.

Scott was (is) a great flyer.

Trick descriptions were highly variable, to say the least, back then.

Oh goody... the Axle

And I have no recollection of anything called a Turtle looking like that. I know that Helicopter has been used and re-used but that's a new one on me.

Otherwise, quite a nice historical document.
