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".

Did I miss something Undecided

When did the Fearless become the be all and end all of kites Huh

It seems every recent thread on this forum in one way or another ends up in a discussion about the fearless (or to a lesser extent the sea devil) and there ability to defy modern physics. Some owners would even have you believe their fearless will cook you breakfast and act as a suitable cure for Cancer.  Wink

We get it! there great kites  Angry

But, there are other kites you know some better ones too believe it or not. (comes down to personel preference)

Personally I think Benson and Co and also R-sky have done a great job of making this sport look  Cool

When an Angel gave unto Lam a scroll, and was told 'Be not Afraid' It was on that day, that all other kites were doomed.

Your kite doesn't cook you breakfast? Maybe its time for a Fearless!

I think we need to put cids front and center of our presentation to the IOC.  Sounds like we've finally found our savior.

Lam will be the perfect person for the job. Smiley

When the wind is right, I will run out with the Fxxxxxxx and forget about breakfast.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Yes, the Fxxxxxxx can cure cancer too. May be.  I go to bed early now and wake up early in the monrning(6:00am) to fly the damn F kite.  My overall health is better and for sure it will lower the chance of getting one. Wink
