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".

I built this a while back.  It hasn't gotten it's time in front of the camera until now.  Currently one of my favorite kites to fly.

Nice of you to say.  AKA_MrBill has a pretty extensive Vortex build here: http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=6449.0

He uses much of my B'zar 2011 build thread for reference, but also throws in some of his own ideas and techniques.  very good photos.
