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".

The wind was almost zero....... or maybe it was.  The temp was 95 degree's.  Ever wonder why people stay away from the beach when it's Hot.. Roll Eyes

The water was still and later I did do some 540's with the Pro Dancer.  Layed flat as pancakes.  Tough to do with Pro Dancer.  But nice and flat.  (No video so it don't count).

I wish I had been flying my Ocius sul could have done some tricks and ended up in the water.  Wind was playing tough today.  Had to use old camera No HD... Vertigo out!! Cool

looks like fun. Smiley

my favorite, the side slide at the end where you're the one sliding.  Cheesy

as always, great music; nina simone's voice is as smooth, decadent, and delicious as melted butter.

What fun, could you even feel any air movement? Seeing a PDSUL just settle like that makes me think not.

Very nice. Flying over water is always fun. Watching you just sit it on the water was grest. If that had been me the kite would of drowned.
