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".

Just checked the date on the fade picture. Feb 27, 2012. Looks like it's been spending some quality time with will getting tuned up nicely. Smiley

According to the Sturdy Designs FB page, testing of the pre-production prototype has gone well. Details should be available very soon.

Nice to see that younger people are getting involved. I hope Will sticks with it for the long term. He does nice work and is a super flier!
