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".

Looking around the internet on a wet afternoon I've just gone onto the 'Kite plan Base' site and found they now have a selection of older kite books to download - stunt kite magic, stunt kites by Dave Gomberg, flying the Rev, put the wind in your hands etc. Worth a look!

Looks like they've updated a few of the PDF's to include the covers. 

Thanks for posting. Some may be a little dated but still relevant.
