  1. Hopefully that helps The grub screw goes into the s/s tube , carbon tube and s/s pipe, but not the nuts. I get the cabon tube from C-Tech nz. I use a thick wall carbon tube so it only flexs on a hard landing and will not break or bend like s/s. I've made foil shape axles before and they work very well, just a shit load more work to make the end plugs and mount to side rails. And before you ask NO I'm way to busy, making a E-Foil at the mo
  2. I was told back when it started, they were night bugging in the dark , no lights. All you could see from camp was a blob and arms with handles which looked like antlers / moose going past
  3. I traveled with Qantas 30 kg each way NZ to Yeppoon and left my kitebike at my Dad place in Yeppoon for next year 😃 I put the call out for spare buggys in NZ and there are about 4 buggys here that people willing to let you guys use. Most of them are the smaller PL type tho. Al has the bigger buggy that Chook used. I know what's like using someone else's buggy it's like borrowing someone else's underpants! they just don't fit as nice as your own 😅 They are enough bigfoot wheels here, so you dont need to bring them
  4. Travel insurance with sporting accidents cover. And bring your best Hawaiian shirt as they stand out when night buggying, Actually they just stand out anywhere 😃
  5. @Grants I checked my lock up today and I have a spare set of bigfoot duro's as well
  6. Hi I only have two spare buggy at the mo and one has been booked for the Moosemeet by Dan. The second a Ozone stealth buggy is my sons, I'll check if he is going to the Moosemeet this year. I also have some spare parts, big foot lights , suspension rear axle, seat . I'll put the word to see if anyone has a spare buggy or parts
  7. I like the Chrono's as I can kitebike and kitesurf in the same session without chancing kites, bar pressure is perfect light enough to kite all day Blackjack, I would be using my 13m in 12 knots for the buggy, but if I was going to kitesurf as well, I would use my 18m Chrono, Airtime (I don't have a 15m ) and use the trimmer to depower it for landkiting. Yip, over 30 knots LEI time for no stress fun. Over 45 knots 4m UNO, unless you want a speed recond then it would be a 6m R1 and a tube of no more nails to glue your balls down
  8. With a tear, I said good bye for another year to Yeppoon's beautiful beach and kiting friends, Thank you all for a awesome time Total kms 723 this year, all on 2 wheels
  9. Hmmm, Out of uniform Plumet ! On a international level. There will be disciplinary action for this
  10. Awesome vid Chook Good winds today, still on the 7m chrono, massive beach
  11. Team strategy meeting at HQ at 9am I'll be there
  12. A bit less wind today Only managed to get 75.2 kmh But the kitebike was crabbing a bit this morning.... lots of little blue ones, turning into seagull bate! Kind of over it now as it been four days on the 7m, would love a nice 13m or 18m day to give my hip a rest from the seat harness I'm not complaining, It's still better than been at work!
  13. That is the only way to please the wind Gods! and maybe a pink tutu would help
  14. And bumped it again Chook in full flight to a PB
  15. And bumped it again 74.8 kmh
