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? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Never had one of his kites, although they were popular a few years ago from what I remember. It's a bad deal for everybody when this happens, I know of three or four good builders in the USA that have either stopped or continue to make very few. First one that comes to mind is Paul Shirey, then John Rollins, Matt Brown, Robert Randolph and others.

Extremely sad to hear that.  Always been a big fan and I do hope he goes on to further success.
