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".

That Colibri XL is epic.  Watched a couple flying videos and I can't even describe the emotion that it captures.  It's overwhelming in size, style and design.  Looks like it pulls like a truck.  Wow just wow!

Thanks fellas!

By my username where do you think I fly out of? (No sarcasm intended)

Oh, one thing I thought was funny in reading through past gwtw topics is the way certain kites catch fire and become the "Kite that saved the world".  That's hysterical.  I love that but it seems so true.

Nirvana, Widow Maker, Talon,  Deep Space, etc....

It would be great to fly with a group to try kites on before the buy, but sadly I think I might have to play a little buy, sell, buy, sell before I find Ms. Right.  I'm hoping "She's the one" is on the way.  I am the type of person that will never have a bag of kites.  I find "It" and learn the personality and soul of it for years....staying true.  Unfortunately, the mass production kites I've had from a big manufacturer (not naming names) have been soulless.  Great to learn on though so my baby won't have to deal with too many skid marks.....I hope.

Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking for a couple weeks.  I don't know how I hadn't discovered this great forum sooner, but I'm here none the less.

I love kites.  Great hobby, sport, passion....been flying on and off since 2000.  I played with a lot of intermediate mass produced kites along the way and finally broke down to order my first custom recently.  Probably a good thing since the learning curve has kept most of my kites in the grass as opposed to the sky.  Believe you me, I've bashed more kites head first into hard ground learning a fade than much that my kites always ended up brown and green eventually. 

Now I am tricking and loving the new dimension of 3D.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading through the forum.  The characters and personalities here are priceless.  I hope to add to the fun and appreciate this resource as it is priceless.

Thank you and smooth steady winds to all.

9460 VHB tape made by 3M and a hot iron to fuse it forever - Paul LaMasters on KiteLife.

It seems the ironing causes the final fusion that makes it permanent.
