Hi all, is my pleasure to meet you .
Glenn, 21 with 34 years experience, dad of 4 sons, now single, have my batchelor pad in Lithgow NSW. Old boardsailor got bored, bought cheapo ebay power kite flew it in all wind strengths. Became single, cashed up and the kite bug kicked in, have an array of kites, HQ Symphony 1.7, HQ rush 2m, HQ Scout 4m, Flexifoil bullett 4.5, Flexifoil blade 4.5,And Eolo Evo 8, a Psycho land board and very soon a PL Mk1 buggy .
Tend to fly on one of the local sports fields, depending on wind strength and direction, (this caper has turned me into a hardcore tree and flag watcher) can be a pain as sometimes get weird wind gusts, have been pounded afew times ( must remember my kneelos) but generally have a good time.
My addiction was bad enough for me to warrant a holiday with the main aim of kitesurfing lessons, which was last week. What a blast, was the biggest learning week that I had encountered in a long time. Must recommend Padi and crew from Surfconnect at Sandgate, very friendly, ultra professional. Had very good sleeps only saw 10 oclock once and that was a night at the pub with my instuctors, but paid for it next day, hangovers kite lessons and getting pounded in crashes which happened heaps, have that bad learner attribute of sheeting on too far and powering kite up too much.
While there picked up heaps on things KITE, had my first run ever on a buggy, am hooked now.
