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".

Your Right never can have enough Straps... I just got a couple new line sets... Others seem to like them a lot.  For me they changed my whole flying schematics...  Once I felt the lines everything became brighter.  I have been working my precision flying for weeks. Sharp turns and straight lines... Now that I have finally gotten by this I can continue on my Fade work...   

That Half Axel is very important to learn.  It is equally important to control after it's complete.  Keeping it on the same line... Left/Right, Back and Forth... Months ago Tony mentioned that a Slot machine was just a 540 sideways.  He is so right.  But you can't do it without a half Axel...

I started flying them on a Diagonal.. gonna' break some Carbon before I get this one right.  The closer to the ground the scarier it gets...

Hoping to get Two Point landings and Wing Tips. 

This week-end is our Big Kite Feat at the Beach... Just need to have a Great Day and bring Kiting to the Beach People for the first time...
It should be a Fantastic day for others who have never seen a Kite Fest... Nothing like this has ever been seen around here...

I flew Nancy's "Deep Space Ul" tonight...  Tongue Tongue Kiss Kiss Tongue Tongue Tongue Kiss Kiss Kiss

I flew my first JL's tonight ...also.  That Kite gives JL's out for Halloween.  I finished a AVFFF and decide to give it a try.  Boom !! I got one.  My heart jumped.  So worked it some more actually got 2 JL's in a row..Lt/Rt/Lt/RT/LT and down... Our wind tonight was terrible.  Jon T had us practicing 4 KiteTeam flying.  He has some really Great Team kites for No wind situations... So by the time I got to fly some more.  Night was over...

It's almost 2:00 am and my blood is still pumped. Been studying film and YouTube JL stuff... This is gonna be a fun day today...I have a feeling I'll be posting some nice JL's real soon.  Maybe I should go to bed and sleep.  I always have trouble sleeping night before some thing exciting. I'll drive to the Beach when the sun rises...  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy  Amazing I wasn't but three or four feet off the ground.  Nice Kite....  Doesn't track like I'd want.  But well work on that tomorrow.  Going to sleep btw:
Nancy that Kite is a dream I'll wake up in the morning and No JL's No Fades No AVFFF No Flick Flacks.... all a dream.... Vertigo Out !!!
