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".

Probably my only post worthy footage ever.
Wind was terribly variable/gusty/directionally challenged.
Thanks for filming Adam/Stevi.

Nice Dannno419!

The way you tricked the wind didn't seem that gusty!
Very nice video.

I'll take good notice for my learning process with my Talon UL.

Cheers,

N.

Nice flying Dan ... I loved the roll ups.  You can see in the video when you  were fighting the winds.  You gave em' a spanking ...  Music  Undecided .

Really liked the way you handled the kite in the wind.  Do you have high winds often ??  Love to see you fly in some steady 5 mph....  Huh Huh

Hey Vert, thanks.
its hard to say we have any particular type of wind often - Calgary is about 90km east of the Rocky Mountains, so we get every type of wind imaginable, 6 different times a day lol.
I think my fav bit in that vid is the super slow-mo axle near the end - or the double forward roll up/unroll near the start.
