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".

Allen,
That pic is amazing!

It was taken by Simo Salanne Sivonen but without the GWTW archive I can't find where I got it from.

Wrong Simo. It's Sivonen, the Orange designer, and you got it from here.

There's a set of links to more of his kite images here. (WARNING !!! May contain disturbing images or at least ones with me in)

Some lovely pictures here. That Rev pic by John is quite remarkable; I also really like the Nirvana in front of the skyscrapers and the lighting of the Machine on the beach is lovely.

I can't claim any credit for this (not my kite or my photo) but I did think it was lovely:

Holy Commie Socialist kites, Batman!  Is that Obama?  Cheesy

I thought we decided there would be no politics on GWTW anymore?!
