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".

Nice kite!

A shame to fly it more than 100' up.  Roll Eyes

(just my prejudice, I like low flying kites)

Once you've seen one kite out of sight, you've seen them all out of sight.  Smiley

I enjoy my kites at any length.   Cheesy

big kites flying low always attract a crowd.  Grin

Love to fly some of them till they are just a spot in the sky.

Once won money for both the largest kite and highest flying kite. Great to get paid to fly.  Cool

same here, sometimes i like to go high, other times not,

i figure its better to have line that is too long rather then too short  Wink

i didnt really buy the line just for this specific kite, i bought the 1000 x 500 because its so universal, i figure it will pretty much cover me for any kite that i would ever buy or fly in the future,

i just ordered the kite a few days ago, and im already thinking i should have gone with the 16 footer  Huh

You did not make a mistake in the kite you bought... it's just now obvious that you are a _true_ kite flier! That is, you only need "one more kite". Smiley

The next level is admitting you have too many kites.

the best way to share pictures is to upload them to a online folder website like Flickr, Google Picasa, Photobucket etc....then you can have them up for how ever you want....if you attach a picture to a post from your hard drive then it will be deleted after awhile to make space...

if you go to an online folder system you then follow the directions in this thread to post them: http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=7795.0
