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".

Thanks for commenting.

It was a lunch time fly with some Work friends.

Nice steady mild wind.

So what has everyone else been flying?

With the winter weather systems, it is NOT SLK friendly here in the middle of the continent. All of the big kites are cleaned and put away for warmer weather. I need to get a big DC that can handle strong winds.

Must be nice to have workmates to fly with. Not many fliers around here.

Tmadz:
What strength winds are you getting?
Perths strong winds usually only happen when the North coast gets Cyclones.
The main problem is rough/bumpy winds.

I have only managed to get a group out 3 times in 2 years though.
The other Flyer from work has retired now too.

Hi Thief:
Sweet Kite and great location shot.
That kite is awesome......

20 deg C would have been nicer than 20 Deg F.
My picture above was taken on a nice 38C (100F) day.
Much nicer that 20F

Thanks for sharing.
