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".

What a blast the wind was high at the beach and the "Zoomer" did it's thing... I returned later at the end of the day winds were stronger and the "Zoomer" was a blast...Wind was even blowing "Rufus"... Got the kite at "Kites and Fun Things" for $20 bucks.  Preimer makes the kite I put a color tail on it the other day.  Looks really nice and a lot of FUN>>> she will trick a bit... like flying a jet... If you don't own one or never flew one... You owe it to yourself... The stronger wind the better.  The sail is small and takes a bit to get up in light wind...  Grin      Not a beginner kite....  :'(

I's made by Premier and had lines ..I didn't trust them...  Cry.... High wind needs tough lines...     Either way one can't go wrong.....  I am sure there are other little kites like it...  Smaller the better... I flew a Ospry a new beginner kite going into production real soon by Premier... nice beginner,,, easy fly nice tracking .... but the little one's are like jets... The Ospry fly's like a two seat training plane... nice control.
