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".

The Tricky Wiki over on Fractured Axel has a bunch. Not sure if I am allowed to post a link, as it is a retailer?

It hasn't been updated in quite some time, but Peter Peter's Kite Site has an extensive list of older tricks.

I don't remember where I got this from. But I remember getting it from a website somewhere. Anyhow I copied it for my own personal use, and now have posted it here:

If you know who wrote this originally I would happily give them credit Smiley. Enjoy!

Geoffrey,

The descriptions are straight from Peter Peters site.  The layout is different though.  Undecided
