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".

I should not even have flown a vented kite at those low winds of maybe 5 mph.  But after waiting for so long, I just had to...  And pay off it did!

Here is a short, uncut section of footage Kris took today, which I just _had to_ share.  Note how at 00:12 into the clip the kite sparks off a volley of pure flying fun!  That even leaves special guest Phelix Knopph confused, who as usual appears towards the end  Cheesy

I would get in serious trouble with my wife if I posted the exact coordinates.  Shocked

From where your profile says you are located, go south for about 45 minutes.  When you hit Monterey Bay, you have gone much too far.  Hint: There are only so many lighthouses...

@fidelio:  I wish I had so much as a fraction of Phelix's talent of being loved by everybody just for being himself.  Undecided  Stay tuned for more.
