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".

Being new to the forum, I was perusing earlier threads and caught this video. No one posted any comments, but I think it is terrific, especially over the pond.

I gather that the Emong is a relatively new design and, from what little I have read, thus far, is pretty easy for a beginner to fly. How long are those lines? From the video, they look to be relatively short. The flier doesn't have to move the body as much as the arms.

It is not a terribly expensive kite either (under $100), so it would seem like a great kite to have for absolutely still days. It also doesn't require a large field. Steve is flying it over a pond, in what looks like a small driveway, and inside a building portico.

Love it!  Smiley
