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".

Lovely flying-gliding!

No doubt about it, I've got to assemble the pieces I've already got, and build that @#$%^&* kite!!

Actually, it's at my place. I've put about 60-80 hours flying right there. It's great flying for zero-wind kites. lots of trees surrounding the area to block what little wind there might be in Chico (lol).

caught the wind sock in the second viewing, really great flying in these wind conditions...has anyone tried a weight in the nose...the spanish pilots are using 12 grams, which is approximately what two quarters weigh, the recommended weight for a skate...adding weight enhances the glide...the agile control offered in the ninja gives the ability to fly close to kite eating obstacles with no worry, a true close quarters, urban flying machine... g
