  1. Wow, the conditions have changed in the last week. I am glad that the winds weren't too strong while I was there. It's true I am a light wind kiter, anything from 4-18 knots and I'm as happy as a pig in shit. glad though that the wind picked up for you speed freaks. Some seriously fast runs to the point!
  2. Holy shit, you guys must be loving the strong winds. Thats some awesome speed!
  3. For Sale

    With spars?
  4. Glad the wind is still playing nice for you blokes
  5. Ok, final tally 6m ✅, 8m✅, 11m s-arcs. Never flown. 12m✅, 16m (modified)✅, 18m (custom) ✅ f-arcs. 13m venom 2 ✅ 16m scorpion✅ 3m apex 3 9m ✅, 13m LEI 12m✅, 15m speed 3✅ Exp✅, 1.5 vented ✅ revs only missed a couple of kites, so I'm happy. we also had a bit of a spooky moment yesterday. There is a new guy from Rockhampton who has just started buggying and came down for a fly yesterday arvo. I thought the 2nd hand buggy he was riding looked farmiliar, so had a closer look and realised that it used to belong to the late, great Andyfly. So after passing through the hands of several owners the buggy had made it back to the very beach where Andy's ashes were scattered 5 years ago. @Goz got some photos of the buggy on the beach and I will let him tell the other twists of the story.
  6. If you see some buggies on the beach come up and say g'day. we start from the back of driftwood units, about 2km in the beach from the caravan park.
  7. Very light wind today. Started at about 5 knots, but we both managed to get going on big kites. @Chook, was cruising with the big 19m silver arrow and I struggled to get going with the 1830 f-arc. The 5 knots we had slowest died over about an hour and by the end @Chook's flysurfer was running on pure apparent wind and hot air. I couldn't even feel a breeze on my face, but the flysurfer was still in the sky. A few pics from this morning List update... 6m ✅, 8m, 11m s-arcs. Never flown. 12m, 16m (modified), 18m (custom) ✅ f-arcs. 13m venom 2 ✅ 16m scorpion 3m apex 3 9m ✅, 13m LEI 12m, 15m speed 3 Exp✅, 1.5 vented ✅ revs

So no kite flying really. I managed to launch the 18m f-arc, but I wouldn't say I got to "fly" it, so not tick for it.
