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".

Great video,
that winds like my summer northeaster over here,my lumbering brute gets taken out so often that i bought a second weifang thingy for spare parts but i havent had to strip it yet as it wont disintergrate no matter how hard i pull it.The upper spreader popped out once but i found it sticking up out of the sand.
Im thinking about stacking them.I reckon you need a cheapie to cane when the winds a over the limit,just to hear the noise and to be honest i kinder hope it will explode!
Hows the new kite slide?

NICE dog!! You are def. coming along.. some of your 1/2's are more like a stall at the edge of the window and then a turn BUUUT some look really good.. To exit the 1/2 you need to take up the slack evenly and quickly when the nose is pointed in the opposite direction (after completing the 1/2) I usually pop both lines as this gives the kite direction while getting a burst of speed at the same time.. Hope I havnt oversteped my bounds but since Norm is taking a deep breath and getting some flying time for himself in I thought I would chime in
Have fun Kurt
