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".

We were not.
Theif, do you remember who that was? I've always kind of wanted to get some kites that hold a fade well in super solid nice wind and just stake 3 or 4 of them like single lines.

Joe I can NOT get over how slow Zarathrusta is on that recording. My god I feel bad for the brass, hahaha

Get an MEFM.  We used to have 5 or 6 of them all sitting in fades.  We didn't even stake them out - just put the straps on the beach and cover with some sand.  One time a couple of us went for a coffee and came back 5 minutes later - the guys who stayed behind hadn't had to do a thing
