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".

I saw it, but I thought I was the only one who watched that show... glad some other kite folks saw that. Which one of you is the writer for that show ?   Cheesy

The writer was a guy named Mike Benner, I managed to get a response out of him regarding the kite portion of the episode:

After I turned in my first draft of the script, we decided that Greg needed a “thing” that gave him a unique flavor. We were kicking around a bunch of different “things,” and me or someone else in the room remembered seeing this YouTube video:

At about the :45 mark, the guy flying the kite starts making these moves and maneuvers that we just thought were so fun and funny, and we knew instantly that Greg was into kites.

That's great Jared, thanks for sharing, that's one great video too.

  Cheesy   Cheesy  "An inside look into the seedy underbelly of the professional kite flying world." , TheNomadicProject 

Sounds like I'll have fun looking around the video shooters web site too.

So who is going to fess up as being the Thors Hammer flyer and comic inspiration?

BTW, I wouldn't have seen the humor if it hadn't been pointed out, I started when TOTL Hawaiian's and FlexiFoils were the go to kites so you know I've flown from, or landed on, my a_$ more then a few times

Of BBs? The one in question is only good because of the kite references. All the other ones are really pretty funny IMHO.

There's really no such thing as a bad episode to watch, the latest "Lindapendent Woman" is funny because of the kite references, but a few of my favorites are "Crawl Space", "Art Crawl", "Burger Boss" and "Broadcast Wagstaff School News"

I don't know if any one watches Archer, but H. Jon Benjamin is also the voice of Archer. The season premiere of Archer was a Bobs Burgers dream sequence. Definitely an adult show, but hilarious (IMHO).
