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".

I was adding text to photos on the Picasa website when I ran across this photo taken in December of 2002 on the beach of San Francisco.

Didn't get a chance to talk to them and have never seen this odd foil again.

One kite that I always found different and it was surprisingly not a bad flying kite was the Cyborg by Mike Sterling, this is a Cyborg VIII, photo blantantly hyjacked from Karen Gustavson's site

Another is the Utopia by Martin Schob, a radically different flying kite but given the right inputs a very precise flier.
