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".

been a long time for me since i flew in england - am home a few days and got to my old kite field yesterday. really stormy weather over the blighted isle this week so something small or vented seemed a good idea. between rain storms there were amazing skies to decorate as the sun got close to setting. the matchbox i picked up from lee a few years back in monterey was in the boot and it made me think of great small things the brits do well (cars and kites)

the pic doesn't show it but the wind was between blustery - zero - 20mph. the matchbox went from having a 120 degree window to being a lathamed downward projectile intent on escaping control

I am so happy to see that little dude getting some proper airtime again. I am honored to have helped. My theory of high wind flying was always to fly smaller. Psycho, Matchbox, Frenezy, and Cesium, all my high wind favorites. Whack it hard, my friend.
