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".

Cold winter morning down here in the southern hemisphere, great sun, perfect smooth wind from the river and the right tool for the task at hand: the impeccable Saber II

Not in Buenos Aires, our coldest winter days are rarely below freezing point, as a matter of fact this past saturday, when I shot this video, was one of the coldest days of this winter.

Didn't have a wind meter at hand (you can't trust those very much either...), but I'd say it was in the 10-15Km/H range, exactly in the "standard kite" range, a little bit to high to fly a UL kite, not high enough to take out the Rev. It was blowing from the river, constant and with zero turbulence, ideal conditions.
