  2. Melbourne landboarding

    Apex is good for anthing between onshore (right. next to Port Phillip Bay) to cross on shore. Pure cross shore would be the Westerlies and is generally to gusty with all the trees there. Onshore makes for some sweet runs and if you are tempted in summer, switch over for a kite surf. Truganina Park is good for some added terrain, in the right conditions with a smooth Northerly (rare) you can kite up and down the hill, though requires advanced kiting skills not to get snagged on the trees. There is a nice ramp at the far end facing the beach which is good with a Southerly blowing.
  3. Sydney Guys

    Sadly the weather prediction is little wind above 10 knots this coming weekend and not always in the right direction! What say we plan another weekend to meet?
  4. Louth Bay Trifecta - just for Joel :)

    3rd day in a row blazing up and down the beach at Louth Bay. Not a bad effort for the first week back in the saddle. with Andy, Rob and Jase

    Hi All. Thought you might find this interesting:
  8. Last week
  9. Extreme Fire Fighting

    If you want to see this in action, see if you can get a copy of IMAX "Fires of Kuwait" The story of the Iraqi troops setting fire to 607 oil wells as they retreated in the Gulf war. Took 10,000 people from 40 nations to extinguish and cap them. In the end they reversed the flow of the oil supply pipes from the wells to pump seawater back from the gulf to be used to fight the fires. I saw on a doco that none of them are alive today due to their work putting these fires out.
  10. Ride for Dougie

    Looks like you all had a great day out - We're green with envy, but I guess that weather is on its way to us now (thanks for the week of torrential rain SA!)
  11. Dingley Christmas Fly

    @Kathleen - Thought I'd answer as he's currently away from his computer. Yes he is (he's very keen to get it all in the air)
  12. Dingley Christmas Fly

    @igeighty Are you bringing your new rev stack? Who else is comming that hasn't posted in here? It's a bit cloudy at the moment and hopefully it will turn into a nice afternoon like yesterday.
  13. Ride for Dougie

    Felt that Dougie was missing out on the action..... Got a bloody good run in for you just in case.... Rob, Andy and Jase Saturday at Louth Bay
  14. Extreme Fire Fighting

    Perhaps this is what the Ozzies should have done with their old F111's instead of burrying them in the ground Russian MIG jet engines strapped to a tank for fire fighting.Full story at https://mpora.com/environment/guys-attached-mig-jet-engines-top-tank#RF1MMysvwpDZUVQS.97
  15. Pansh Aurora2 15M

    Hello, Thanks for your post. I've got the 12m Aurora 2. It flies pretty much ok, but it happens to crash for no reason especially in strong winds. The center of the kite would just crash instantly while riding. Would you know what to do? I've read your tweek with interest, but I'm not sure about how you name different lines. If we call A (front), B (2nd), C(3rd), brake (back). Which ones did you shortened (51 and 102mm) ? Cheers

  22. I'm Back

    Nice to see you back in the saddle - they do say if you fall off, don't let it scare you, learn from it. Have fun and take care.
  23. I'm Back

  26. Melbourne landboarding

    @SoutherlyBuster @nigel @bakersdozen Thanks for the replies guys! I've been kiting for the last 5 or 6 years mostly on the mountainboard with a little bit of dabbling in kitesurfing. Been to sandy point a couple of times and 13th a fair bit, I am really keen to find some close (within 1 hour) spots to my current residence in northcote. Seems like altona could be on. I have a 4 meter beamer, a 4.9 flexifoil blade, a 10M flysurfer pulse, and a recently aquired 12M flysurfer psycho, and a zebra mountainboard. Really keen to try some buggying in the near future so I'll have to make it to a meet and pinch someones for a test
  27. Melbourne landboarding

    Don't forget Apex Park in Altona, used to be my local when I lived in Melbourne. About 2km away is Truganina Park on the hill, with a Southerly is quite nice too, westerlies and northerlies there can be very gusty.
