You are very right about needing a strong breeze. When the winds too strong to stand on one leg, they really crank. I have an 8 footer I bought a while ago and it gives you a workout. They fly like missiles but can't do much in the way of tricks other than toppling over the leading edge. They are great trainers and are hard to bust. Real good fun when it's too windy to safely fly anything else.
"Kaos" was very kind and sent me a 6' and 4' flexifoil for the kids, or anyone who wants a go, to fly while I'm on the beach and since they have arrived the wind has disappeared.
(Very much appreciated Kevin).
Either feast of famine with the wind this time of the year.
The beaches around Esperance are first class and no one believes me when I send a postcard of Hellfire Bay in Cape Le Grande National Park. The water is bright aqua and white squeaky sand. Been voted the best beaches in Auzzie list 3 years in a row now.
Check out the location on "google earth" 34*00'12.56'S 122*10'02.62'E and have a look at the photos there.
I'm lucky enough to live here. 33*51'39.89'S 121*51'33.60'E That is the "Chook house". "Wolfie" you can see the Pink Lake to the west I told you about.
