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".

Indonesian leaf kites are fascinating.  Smaller kites are just single leafs, with feathers for stability

Seen here with Indonesain fishing kites (the small diamonds on the end of the fishing pole.)

The fishing kites are even featured on the reverse of the Indonesian 1000 Rupiah banknote
