    Lightweight Buggy rims

    I’ve experienced the same geometric wobble on my plastic MBS landboard rims, three of them perfect, one has the wobbles. Fortunately for me I do not go fast enought where it matters.

    If you are lucky @goshen might give you some lessons, he is located in Geelong, one of the best landboarders/kiters in Melbourne, he used to run Kitepower in Geelong some years ago.

    Looking like this might turn into Just day trips rather than a weekend get together.

    It doesn't look like T and I can make it this year 😣 T has a stomach problem and now has a NJ tube for feeding . It doesn't stop her from kitebiking and kitesurfing tho, but we can't get travel insurance with it as we are still under the care of the hospital.

    Hi Mustapha, and welcome to Extreme Kites. There isn't really anywhere in particular in Melbourne that does landboarding lessons anymore. The best bet is to keep an eye out on the Events section of the website and come along to a meet in Melbourne. Come and say hi.

    Hello. newbie Q bout depower kites-

    Great to hear you got s landboard. Ok so if you are new to landboards, you now have two new skills to master, board and kite. For the board, find a grassy hill and practice some down hill runs with board only, get you used to steering and balance. Also learn how to power slide so you can stop, but for the first hill not too steep so no power slides needed. As some one else said learn to go with the flow, so, if the kite suddenly pulls you forward, don’t fight it, squat down and leap forward to take the tension of the lines, then keep on riding.

    Hobbies - the definitive list

    Age range of hour kids? Hobby for kids or parents or both? Can make a difference in choice of hobby. Musical instruments can be a great hobby. Get them started on a simpler instrument to see if they like it. So a piano as first choice is perhaps not the best idea. A blues harp harmonica is a much better choice, this was my first musical instrument. Don’t get a cheap crappy one, start with a Honer Marine Band Blues Harp, plastic body, metal to and bottom, costs about 50 bucks. Once they advance they can bend the notes. Some thing both kids and parents can play together. Learn to play be ear first, then learn to read notes. There are some great instructions on the internet. Or a 4 string Ukulele, learn to play chords then to pick out notes. Then if you want to annoy people who have a distinct dislike for South American Pan flutes, a pan flute — make it yourself. Find some bamoboo, cut to length, fine tune by cutting to correct length, join them up with string/glue and wah lah a musical instrument. PVC pipe can also be used. Plenty of free tunner Apps out there to get the tuning right. Harmonica link, not a tutorial bet gives you an idea of how a good a harmonica can sound, the explore around on his channel for in depth tutorials.

    Hello. newbie Q bout depower kites-

    Thanks everyone. Your advice is helping me heaps. I won't try to jump or buy a bigger kite till I get lessons and heaps more experience with the 1.6 & 3m.hear u about using slower larger kite's in lighter wind rather than hectic smaller kites in higher wind. See why people have multiple kites. I'm very interested in how others began- what size kites and what conveyance?

    I'll be day-tripping and I travel light so it doesn't matter to me although 7-mile is a bit closer for those coming from Canberra
