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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

I've done some pretty stupid and crazy things in the 26 years of flying and riding buggies. But jumping a pier whether it was planned or not is
very stupid. If he didn't make it, he probably would have made the news besides a uTube video, and maybe even the morgue.
He did it once, he was lucky. If he can do it again, he's good.
