short video with heap of toys being abused

12 posts in this topic

I've had a few of my gum tree purchases out and about.  The latest purchase was my new Pro 90 Mountain board.  Rides like a champ.  Very light and perfect for spins and board offs.  Nice balance.

I also tried out an old Prism Nexus stunt kite and got schooled trying a backside 180 off the ramp.  When the wind is up, they move like a mother and have a bit of pull on them.  Probably only crack a 0.5m2 of surface area.

Cool. I mostly enjoyed the angry stunt kite flying. 

I land boarded on one in a 50 knot storm. It was like flying an angry wasp.

Finally got to see that video (bad internet here). Nice work! Nice park too. I wish my council will keep my local nice and short like that more often. I dare not use footy ovals, as I've had locals yell at me for doing it (ruins the grass apparantly!) :whistle: Those Germans have such luck with their huge empty airport and fields.

Now you are just being super tricky.  Mountain boards would be super hard to get some pop or tail tap for a late grab.  Always willing to give it a go though.

They are such nice guys.  Always out there mowing it and watering it just for me.  My Council rates well spent I think.

Hey I've perfected one of your moves @bob2!!!

The one with the kite spinning with you laying flat on your back. I'm a jet at that one!!!! :laugh1:

Yep.  Its a move that takes particular skill. I'm always up for a few each time I head out.  Never gets tired.

Kym on Lake LeFroy, West Australia in the drizzle.

P1050620.MP4

He is a clever bugger and made a "kinda dirtsurfer" for each of his kids too fitted with sails. I cant find the pics though.

Nope, I think your doing a pretty good job of it bro! I just tend to keep the kite high and transition from heel to toe or vice versa lol

What the thing this fella is hanging on to some sort of windsurfing sail?

A "Kite Wing".  He spends more time flying than rolling in a strong wing.

Keeps up with us landsailing no worries at all. In 25 knots he doesn't leave any wheel tracks at all for a VERY long distance.:crazypilot:He has an open  aluminium flat bar hook/boot retainer (Inverted J ) each end of the deck that his boots can hook under while flying.

If you look carefully you can see his 7 year old sons mini homemade dirtsurfer on the bank (he uses a 2 m2 windsurfer sail on it) above the front wheel of the yacht.
