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 was kidding when I said I invented the Mutant Tornado 2000.  I just made that up to be ridiculous.

I did invent the reversing hash brownie. I OWN THAT ONE  Cheesy ALL CREDIT GOES TO JW

I'll leave the video making to you new hot shots. I'm like one of those old school skate boarders that still rides a 1970's board. The only tricks I do are Side slides, Flat spin based stuff, flick flacks, roll ups, lazy Susan type stuff, tip stabs, reverse coin tosses, back spins and down wind glides. For precision I only do boxes and low ground passes.

Steve RULES!! Nice job finding the video Wink

I've been doing the "Swish & Flic" for about three years but I feel my claim to fame possibly slipping. I'm still naming it though Grin

John - I am a skateboarder from the 70s, Those young ones just don't trick like that anymore. Sometimes I wish my body wasn't so busted up so I could go ride. But then I just trick my kite instead.

It's like skateboarding without the street pizza.

Sorry obi...
I am working with the Goff ītrick very often now and it looks better and better the more often I do this trick...so I don`t think so that this trick is silly...even Chris Goff himself was doing this in Stella very often...I think you should try it and get the hang of it, before saying that...believe me, it is fun !!!
Thanks Peter, I saw that new Goff trick video you posted and will be giving it a try myself.


That trick is silly.  Watch at 0:18 in this video.  There is another at 1:18.  Simply the coolest new move I have seen recently for sure.  He is really from another planet on that Fury 85. 

Adventure to Purley Way

That's Chris doing a real trick.  He is bouncing the wing tip and then using the spring to enter a taz machine/540.  NO ONE has ever done this one, even by accident.

That's a Goff IMHO.
