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'm stuck wishing for things that don't exist yet (or don't exist any more) ...

But on the plus side, I've ordered my vented Talon, which has been on the wish list for almost 2 years now Smiley

That site is all kinds of kite porn.

BTW I'm surely not alone in wondering what a lot of this thread is doing in Sport Kites.

$12G isn't that much when you compare it to many other hobbies/sports/pastimes. That would buy you 1/4 of a motor if you were a drag racer... and those guys usually have a spare in the $25G trailer...

Kiting is the biggest bang for the buck that I've gotten into so far...

You know what would be even more satisfying than owning an outrageous number of kites?

Owning a more reasonable number and being able to fly them properly to a high level.  Cheesy

If everyone had a "reasonable" number of kites, a lot of kite makers would go out of business.

Buy all you want, then sell 'em cheap here when you burn out in 18 months.   Roll Eyes

It's happened many times before.   Sad
