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".

Not much wind today though...
He started with my Nexus and once the crashing phase had diminished I let him have a go at my SB Aura 4,7Oz because the wind had dropped dramatically.

Really my Aura is a magic kite. It captures the slightest breeze and flies smoothly. It helps you learn very well how things happen as in slow motion.
I love it!   Grin
And my friend did too.  Smiley

Ah yes! BTW I managed to make a Taz with the Aura today. Only one but it was beautiful! I will keep at it.  Smiley
