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".

You call your dad and brag.  Cheesy

Britt has been doing a lot of dirt bike racing (it's a club of "older" riders (>30), he's 34).

He went to a course today known for having a lot of wind.

Although he hasn't flown a lot in the last couple of years, he is incredibly

muscle memory oriented. He opened the main vents of the L'Atelier Lithium I had

loaned him. And flew in >20 mph winds for about 30 minutes when he noticed

the leading edge was just a tad askew. Proudly, he called to tell me the whole story

and sent a picture.

Got to be proud of your boy.

I'm pretty sure he flew the tail in honor of zippy8.

Anyone know what sticks are in the LE of a Lithium Vented?
Probably some Avia Sport rods.

What Do You Do ...?  Pull out a vented Rev2 or B2

Great looking kites. Is the one on the right made by Wayne Knott?
