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?

I bit the bullet and got a stowaway Delta.  Thanks for the tips on kite clubs and flying around San Francisco.  I'll report back on my first flight!

Well, I got to fly it on Thursday evening and with the help of my girlfriend it got up and stayed up.  Wasn't even a challenge.  I would say the wind was mild and slight ocean breeze.

I went out the next morning and there was barely any breeze and I was by myself.  I could not keep it up or have it cruise on its own.  I had to run a bit and let the line out slowly to get it up.  Tugged on the string to keep it afloat.  I blame the wind, lol.  I could be doing something wrong.

Overall, it was fun and relaxing.  Sure everyone walked by looked at me funny on Friday but I didn't care.
