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".

Does anyone know what the wind ranges are for the following:
Shiva UL, Shiva Standard, Shiva half vent, Shiva full vent?

Thanks

RonG could give it to you from not only published data, but his

own personal usage.  He was kind enough to loan a Novice flier

a UL for the final demo of the 2002 Nationals.

You know John, I haven't thought about kites much lately but that photo brought back a flood of great memories. Thanks...

In the late 90s saw a French (or was he Swiss) kiter fly a routine in no wind with a UL walking 360s and doing tricks so I'd say they go pretty low  Smiley He got a lot of applause  Cool

(Golden Valley kite fest, Tewkesbury ISTR any other british fliers remember who it was?)
EDIT Patrick Somelet maybe? Could even have been a 'Kick' which was the father of the Shiva IIRC.  Why can I remember this kind of thing but not my wedding anniversary Roll Eyes

My pleasure Ron.

Seeing you place kites in the sky for me so easily always made me smile.

Hoping to fly with you again some day.  Smiley
