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".

Will Sturdy flew this kite indoors at the Nat'l Air & Space Museum to great effect.  We had about 3 parking spots worth of room to work within, so it was very exciting for everyone, the photographers, the fliers, the spectators and the museum folks watching our antics.

This is a great indoor kite for the money, thanks Will, (and it works outside as well, it's like a two4one deal!)

I don't know what's recommended, but it flys really great on the same line the Liama and the Walas come with............

Someone mentioned thirty lb. somewhere in this thread, but I'm sure the stuff I'm using is heavier.

At :55 he comes really close to hitting that cool guy just minding his own business on the side of the gym. Then at 1:30 he almost runs into the person taking the video. Gotta watch out for Puzzle, he loves to fly into people.  Cheesy
