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".

Was flying today my new Colibri in the XL version.
Sadly the wind was not very good, unsteady between 1 and 4 bft, and changing directions on top of that.

And in case someone is wondering, it is really that big, wingspan 22.5 feet.

I would say, 120-200lbs is enough. Depending on the ground you are one and your weight of course. Its not designed as power monster.
