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".

We've now got a pair of basic starter kites to show the public at festivals that pair-flying can be fun without necessarily requiring expensive kites. Blog post here if you're interested.

This is a fabulous idea. Ive flown pairs with beginner kites and think it really can be a whole lot of fun, especially with the right equipment. We've also had crazy success reframing the Premier Vision with P90s to make them lighter and more responsive for the same reasons, and also in stacks. Keep doing what you do!!!

It's all about somehow transmitting that element of fun and inspiring people to have a go. Rock solid precision can come at a later stage, but you won't get to that stage without that first step of just having fun. And we have every intention to keep doing what we are doing!
