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".

Fly a single line ! Here's what to do with the worst wind conditions my beach has to offer...  This kite was a real bear to wrestle in, glad I only put it up 150'-200'.
Thanks to Steve for hooking me up with the sand anchors and the tail set-up. This is the kite that I bought from 'Stringfly' (Park), I finally got it some air.

Nice, love those Brasington kites ! I bet you got a lot of comments from onlookers with those up in the air.
