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".

Check out Its a Breeze, they have info on most of Bobs kites, Wizard included

from:Stunt Kite Quarterly Magazine vol. 3 no.2 1991

It wasn't as if Bob Childs didn't like the way he was flying... he just wanted something different.

"I really like to do a lot of groundwork, so I set out to make a kite that would combine some of the attributes of the ones I liked," he explained, "plus giving me some interesting new abilities in the air." Thus the Wizard was born. It is a curious mixture that does a number of things quite well.
