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".

With my new vented... No Problem!  Cool

I've never had so much fun in 15+ winds as i did today.
And i never new a vented Rev was such an inverted hovering/slide machine.
I think i spent more time upside down than rightside up... Tongue

It is a smooth flying machine all right. It can put you in Zen mode real quick.

 To paraphrase, "The flying was so good even the neighbors wanted a cigarette!"  Cool

The forecast today is 20 mph with gusts to 30. It's a little more than I'd want to try. I've never broken a stick because of high wind and I didn't want to start now.

Last week I flew my vented Rev 1 in the mid teens and it was a blast! Tomorrow it's supposed to be back in the mid-teens and I'm definitely going out at lunch time. I love the Revs when the wind is too high to do slack-line tricks.

Did they want a cigarette... or a 'stinky' cigar?

The CTR can sell you a vented Rev II. It's not as smooth flying as the vented Rev 1.5, but it has light pull in 20+ winds. Keeps you flying as long as you want to be out in the wind.
