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".

Great wind on Wednesday..skipped College fly.. Beach was calling me... Took out Widow Makers std. and ul…  Stayed for hours. Big difference in flaring the kite after rolling it up between Solus and Widow … Getting my footing and timing right.  But what a day...

Great shots on the 1/2 axles. Maybe when you folks get together we could get some updates on the probability of the fall Sky Burner builds happening. Got my money saved but damn twitchy looking at other kites. Still pretty amazed when I fly my Widow Maker, Mind Trick vented and Tekken sul. One is not better than the other just very different. There's a feel in those 3 kites I can't describe other than it's awesome. Solus and the Fearless 2 should fit in nicely. Fearless 2 will take awhile. Pricey and I got nothing to sell. Last of my discretionary kite fund went to replacing a Premier Nighthawk. Jon T said he wondered why it was discontinued. Glad I got another one. Brand new  ???Excellent kite. Looking at my empty pocket book and realizing I might be becoming a kite collector I'm not sure I like any of you kite nuts   Wink. The continuing education is pretty awesome though.
