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".

How do you get into the trick?  From a turtle or axel/half-axel?

From a turtle is easy - just turtle and tension one while slacking the other and walk backwards in low winds.  The harder part is getting the timing right in order get out of it and fly off.

Kite is a SD light. I can get the Insane going from the turtle position with no problems ,but it is from the half-axle input that i am having the problem.

Keep tension on the initiating line, even if you have to run backwards.
