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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

I'm on the list twice. This means I get to fly with longer lines, right?

I've flown quad some at KP the last five years, but I generally have to switch back to dual when Kurt's whimpering gets too embarrassing.  Cheesy

This very evening I tied off and meticulously hand wound 500 ft of 200# Dacron line onto a hoop spool.  It's part of KAP Rig v2.

 Goal #1:  hang rig from my own soft lifter.

 Goal #2:  set the GoPro to one frame every 10 seconds, not 10 frames in 1 second like last year.  Huh Cry
