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".
Questions or concerns?

Rafael, kite flyer and artist from Cuba seems to busying himself with some outstanding kite art. 
Have I seen another one somewhere? 

Maybe we could collate all kite related art in one thread?

No NO NO NO!!! I wont have it!!!!!

Since when did someone approve 'coolness' as part of this freestyle kiteing world ??

I thought we'd all agreed 'kiteing is not and will never be, cool'...

Why wasn't I at the meeting?!??! Huh Who seconded this nomination?!? Heads WILL ROLL!!

Do any of you realise that anyone can now stumble on this stuff??? It's right in the middle of a Kite forum!? How could they miss it?!?

Oh, I got me a fear... A big fear... A fear that this is the thin edge of the wedge....

 I can feel it in me waters, nothing good will come from this!

He's not even wearing a Tilley!


 Cool [Bow's in the direction of Cuba and says quietly "thank you Rafa"]

I don't know about 'cool'.   But here in Wales, flying a kite at any time other than July can be bloomin' cold!
