  1. Great kite. Wish I had the cash.
  2. Come on folks! Where are the rest of you? Come on down and let's see if we can increase the numbers. It's always fun.
  3. Already getting excited at the thought of getting out on those long beaches in the buggy so hoping the weather is kind to us! Had the kites and PL buggy out last week in gusty winds in Canberra but not very successful
  4. I had two 10 foot flexifoil stackers that I purchased in UK many years ago. Great fun 2 line kites that got me hooked in power kiting. I sold them a year or two back on EK to a guy in USA who wanted them for a film. Good luck in the search.
  5. @Eluder and @BobM. Sounds good. Would be good to get together one weekend. I'm not fussed about the location if either of you have a good spot to meet. We just need the wind!
  6. Yes I went up to the Amaroo site when I first started and met Bob and a few others but agree that it's too built up now. I'm also on the south side so did not think it worth the drive. My nearest ovals are the three together behind the Burns Club in Kambah but I'd be happy to try anywhere else if a group of us wanted to get together.
  7. Yup, I'm still around and even in winter I try and get out on the ovals if the wind is good enough.
  8. I kind of work on a 2/3rds rule. 9m depower roughly same as 6m fixed bridle if that helps.
  9. Like all insurance, it's a question of risk assessment. You don't think you need it till something goes wrong. It is very difficult to compare policies but I shopped around 2 years ago and changed insurers giving me much the same cover at hundreds of dollars less a year. I had occasion to call out an ambulance when my wife had a minor stroke. The bill was over $1000 and my insurer paid it all.
  10. Foster caravan park booked, arriving 29 Sep! As usual looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.
  11. Currently caravaning at Mylestom. Great beach but cross shore winds have ended in a few long walks home!
  12. Nice one Chris. I do remember one of those dune experiences you had! Hope to see you at Sandy Point this year.
  13. Don't worry Darren, the Longstars and my faithful 9m Peak 1 will be with me!
  14. Might try Foster CP myself. Looks like a good option.
  15. Sounds good to me. Will either join a house group or bring the caravan down depending on comparing costs.
