New kiting spot.

Mt Riddle in Craigieburn. 

Great views of the whole city. 

Playgroung for your kids. 

Enough room for quite a few buggies and boards. Grass a little long at moment expect it to be better in warmer months. Heaps of room for single or duel.  Plenty of parking, fly from the back of your car.

Hey Darren. Mr Riddle looks great.

Was having too much fun to take many pics but here is one at least. It was a good day and a good turn out. A little light but certainly buggy-able.

I am going to declare this spot...  "Best in Melb"   there is just so much room for everyone...  and clear winds from every direction...  was a great afternoon of testing and sorting some new stuff....   Now  how to get the council to build some toilets and put some rubbish bins around the place...  and a road in would be nice...but pushing my luck there I think.... check out some video footage

yes you must...    we have so much stuff to sort out...    Trent so enjoyed his first good power kite fly...  needs some work on the buggy  but come next year after he has finished his degree..  think he just may be hooked on the buggies...

A Great place!!

 

Even better for the hard core keyboard kiters (helmet required, flame proof suit optional)

 

Raising the next generation of keyboard kiters.

 

And getting spammed. :grin:

When is the next Dingley fly in?

When are you free?

The Bakers might need another day to fly some more fresh second hand kites?

Just keep an eye on the weather, and if Saturday or Sunday are looking good a week out, make a call.

I'd be up for it but am not so sure Saturday will be that great. I've found Northerlies are best. Southerlies seem to come off residential  areas and are a bit gustier for that location. 

If it dries out after the rains on Friday and wind is moderate to strong and steady I'll consider it.
