  1. Past hour
  2. Shit yeh.......................The wife would have found out what they are worth!!!!!
  3. Yesterday
  4. Strange heavy design.
  5. WTF? Museum up there must be doing good numbers to be able to turn away ornaments like that
  6. Good to hear you had a smooth flight home chook and that the kites arrived safely. The replacement cost and hassle would of been a nightmare.
  7. Would you believe that I threw out an old slingshot bar just last week!
  8. 11m Gvx costs around 56.000rub so around 970€. I dont know pansh.... so i cant compare these kites. The gvx is compareable with ozone r1v1Faster upwind, slower downwind, easy filling. They throw the gvx pro out. This should be a realy nice kite! Greez
  9. @Chook Clive mentioned you got there a bit early yesterday when I went down to see him. Good thing you got there nice and early for your flight. PS. Wifi is right to go for next year. Remember I was saying there was a number of crocs living in the river in Rockhampton. Guy posted a photo of this 5.5m beauty sunning itself on the banks of the Fitzroy river on Wednesday. Damn good reason to stay out of the flood waters around here in future
  10. So what prices are they going for? I cannot find any pricing on their website. Comparable to PANSH? And which kite do you think would be good for kitesurfing or a comparable kite to the Flysurfers? XtazyII, Octane II or GVX?
  11. Thanks Bakers
  12. For Sale

    PM'd you
  13. Pricing is here -
  14. Sure do... I have some brand new Slingshot bars cheap that have been sitting in the warehouse for yonks.
  15. Last week
  16. Does anyone out there on the EK have a spare control bar lying around, that they do not have a use for anymore? Don't need any other accessories apart from the bar itself. Need it for a project that i'm working on. And needs to be fairly cheap, if possible. Thanks in advance!
  17. I've booked from the 29th March to the 26th of April and will fly out on the morning of 27th. Had smooth air yesterday for the 3 flights and arrived in Esperance safely. Lucky I had a mid morning flight as Rockhampton was fog bound and all flights were delayed till 10.15am. My 10.40am departure left on time to meet my 2 other connecting flights to be home at 10.00pm. baggage didn't. Virgin lost it somewhere along the way and I had to go out to the airport again at lunchtime today to collect it. The airport is 23kms out of town. Just glad to get the 7 kites and GoPro's back that the bag contained. (It was insured but the imposed limit wouldn't have covered the replacement costs) Thanks everyone for the best wishes and catch some of you guys at Kingston SE next January or at Easter in Yeppoon.
  18. Glad to hear it's not as bad as we all thought, mate!
  19. Interesting design for a buggy axle, will be interesting to see how it holds up over time. I would imagine there will be a fair amount of stress on the bolts and plates where it attaches to the side rails.
  20. Thanks Guys. Geez spotter, a snapped one i can't begin to imagine how bad that hurts. Mine is a tear only. and is healing pretty fast. i am down to one crutch, and can apply a fair bit of weight to it. I headed into work this morning but can't be on the job site on a crutch. hopefully back monday. I have spent most of the time on the couch playing 'Elite Dangerous' on the PC and getting looked after by Mez and maggie. like a mini unpaid holiday
  21. Perfect, thank you so much for the advice. Really appreciate it. Southerly winds seem to be coming up this weekend. Might go for a static fly at Riverwood on Saturday.
  22. Some interesting work by Ate Eilander, working with Basalt Fiber to create new axles and parts. There's a bit lost in translation between us, however he's shared some other pictures in his gallery listed below of trials/errors as he's refined the wall thickness etc working with some as light as 1mm. He's testing Basalt Fiber in place of Carbon around seeing how much bounce one absorbs vs the other and returning the energy after absorption. You can see more of Ate's work here using both Basalt and Carbon:
  23. Hi ;@Josephv86 Some places to try on the South side: Salt Pand Creek Reserve - grass - Westerlies Maianbar sand flats - Easterlies - low tide Dolls Point sand flats - South to Easterlies - low tide - too busy most weekends & public holidays Wanda beach - SouWest to Easterlies - low tide - section from 3km mark to Boat Harbour is best for landboarding - avoid section from Wanda carpark to 4x4 park after 4pm which is free range dog time & the 4x4 park over weekends & holidays is only for those with a death wish If you're willing to drive a bit further then Windang and 7Mile on the South coast or Anna Bay and Hawks Nest on the North
  24. Well I could have hand delivered it, and even tested it to make sure it flew. Now we expect to see it flying at the next kite meet.
  25. Hey @nigel its here held by the man himself.
  26. Easter is Friday 30 March to Monday 2 April 2018 I hope to be at the Commonwelth Games from April for two weeks, so will have to give this a miss
  27. Having trouble getting the angel to fly. Maybe not holding my tongue the right way.😜
  28. Good modelling from Tracy in that one
