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".

A couple of years back, Flexifoil did a limited run of their kites in pink with a portion of the purchase price going to cancer research.  The color scheme was called "Punk"  Because demand was so high, they ended up doing a second run, but they are still fairly hard to find.  Most people that bought them hold onto them (or sell them for ridiculous prices on eBay).

The Punk color scheme was/is still favored by the Turbulence Angels and their riders.

I ran across the Flexis towards the end of the party, and ended up having to have contact Flexifoil to scour their warehouses to see what was left.  All that was left was a Sting II 1.2m.  Not mine, but here's a picture of a 1.7m



The pink and black really does pop against a blue sky.  Flexifoil isn't getting any more of the pink Sora nylon, so what's out there is pretty much it for these.

I would still love to have a Punk Rage (in the 2.4m to 4.7m size) or the even more elusive pink Ozone Access:


No pics, but also have:

Something like 87% of Easter League competitors have probably flown the Tinkham's pink full-vent Viper.

I have a still unflown pink QPro SUL.
Someone out there has a hot pink (think liferaft, rescue pink!) Ion I once owned also.  Needed welding goggles to look at it in the sun. Cool
