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!

Oy!!!! We have to keep a lid on moral fella.

Wind is nuken again tonight. Tomorrow looks fantastic as well with 15 knot onshore all day.

Kited every day since I arrived. Just running out of holidays.

Some good speed at 4.20. Its always "Oh for Awesome" When you pass motorized vehicles!.......

Yeh that was my Best Ever speed!!!!

Felt like a dog chasing cars today in fantastically smooth winds with speeds up in the low 80's. Had an absolute ball.:drinks: There is just no end to these strong South/Easters.

Would have been a perfect day but Gannet "down graded it" to 99.9% when we both got hit by a single rain drop while wheeling our toys back into the garage. :Chook:

We have certainly missed your presents Rob. No where near as much sand in the unit or shower.:drinks:   Get that shoulder right and back to it next Easter.

Yeh the wind has been really great apart from a few light wind days while Andy666 was here. He thrives on 8 to 10 knots anyway.

The 19mtr "Silver Arrow" Flysurfer in the video is the most ridiculous kite I have ever flown. An 800mm bar and holds so much air when it warms up,it lofts about in no breeze like a tethered hot air balloon. :laugh1: Flys in 1-2 knots of wind though.

True. I did Hawaiian shirt up for the buggy. Didn't even think about it on the foil. What a dick!

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!
