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".

When you buy more than one kite bag at a time, the answer will become obvious.  Huh  Roll Eyes

definitely if you are able to make a kite.....pick up a sewing machine and some cheap ripstop (appropriate for kites though) from goodwinds or skyburner and try it out.....and make sure you have a seam ripper handy too....


there is nothing better than sweating and swearing at a kite you are making and then seeing it in the air!

I started with one kite and now have hundreds - and I still can't stop!  As far as I'm concerned, it's incurable, at least as long as I'm still breathing.
