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".

got to fly today in a gentle wind today. Had a great time, but I have no luck in holding a stall level. i know which way its going to tilt, but by that time it is too late. I did manage somehow to get into a fade and hold it and purposely get out of it, but I really have no idea how I got into it in the first place.

 Grin I still do that! pull off a trick !! and then cant repeat it !! Cry  you can get into a fade by turning the kite away from you and down towards the ground ,the giving slack ( pancake ) the kite and then give it a quick snap back towards you with both hands..  or you can roll into one by cuting an axel off and rolling it in to one.. this methid is harder.. hope this helps..
