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".

You mean sometimes there isn't water falling out of the sky? I wonder what that's like.

Rain! At least you can pull out an SUL in no wind for a bit of flying and warm sunshine doesn't leave you wet, cold, and miserable.

Just came back from a weekend at Bodega Bay.  The wind was either blowing 20+, or it was raining and no wind......

Getting wet doesn't really bother me, it's the crap wind that comes with storms that I don't like.

If there's no lightning there's no issues flying in rain. The fabrics used in kites are perfectly find getting wet. Some of the nylon bits like trailing edge bindings might get a bit loose but they will tighten up again once dried.

If the wind's good fly... you probably won't melt.

For me, wind is the main factor. If the rain does not keep the kite on the ground. I will try flying.  Wink

The only thing that I have to watch is the lower spreader connectors. They sometimes travel up the leading edge rod and damage the leading edge material. Other that that, I am use to rain.   Grin
