    Wanted to buy dirtsurfer

    How hard did you look? Found one for $50. It’s located in WA, but for $50 it’s worth paying postage. PRICE REDUCED!! Downhill Dirt Surfer on Gumtree http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/1246855500?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=ios_VIP&utm_medium=social&utm_source=sms

    Yep it's time for Yeppoon 2020.

    Hey a huge thankyou to Bernie in Yeppoon for sorting out the return of my kite gear. Cheers mate. AUS $126.00 is the cheapest It's ever been to post one way so well done Bernie. Is it ok for you to hang onto the other parcel/bar till next Easter Bernie? If not please give me a yell. I always post my box a month ahead to allow for any delays and it includes spares etc, ready for our annual months pilgrimage over Easter in Yeppoon. Then the world turned to shit and the wheels fell off with Covid 19. Boy have I missed catching up with everyone and the beaches. It's left a big hole in my yearly planning. I unpacked it straight away (when my wife picked it up from the post office today) and have put everything safely away. I try hard to keep the weight down to less than 20kgs. Included was my 19m2 ELF, 15m2 and my 7m2 R1's, all my 666 armour, Shin pads, Helmet, gloves, 2 white sports pressure T-shirts, 2 bars, spare lines, 3 soft kite dry bags, Peter lynn buggy dry bag (that I bought home to repair last year) , my kite repair kit with sticky-back ripstop in 6 colours, spare bridles, fids needles and speed-systems etc, full set of wheel and steering head bearings, grease, pliers and 2 pairs of sunnies. All fits into this box. The box is behind the orange R1. I enclose the contents within a double black "wheely bin" liner to protect it against moisture. This cardboard box has now been across Australia 16 times and there and back to New Zealand for the "Moose meet". I think most of the Christmas stamps have now fallen off the stickytape covering. The post office uses up all of the previous Chrissy stamps on my box to get rid of them. Anyway is was with a sad heart I put my gear back unused. But the positive thing is I'm in fantastic health. Take care gang and keep safe. Catch you next year. (Yes I've already booked the unit for a month.) Chook

    Thinking of you all!

    I was lucky enough to be working for an essential service when the COVID19 lockdown commenced here in New Zealand, so are still working and earning money. Have not been kiting or flying my RC gliders for a few months now, have been putting my efforts elsewhere, now concentrating on my music productions. Funny 7 years ago when I started making videos of kitesurfing etc., looking for music to go with it, vids got silenced for using copyrighted material (oops, then switched to a paid service) and thought, why don’t I write my own music — not so easy. But I have been steadily working on music compositions, so now instead of thinking about writing music for videos I have made, I film videos to promote my music. Fortunately I do not need a recording studio, just use my home gear. I use a combination of virtual instruments driven by a midi keyboard, electric instruments like my violin, mic up my acoustic harmonica and the odd sampled sounds I find around the house using a contact piezo or mic. This all gets assembled on a digital audio workstation (DAW) software on my computer. My son Zac is continuing his university degree locally but all online from home. Here is a link to my latest work:

    Best way to attach a big flag

    Yes, forgot about the spar method. It is a good alternative. But may be a bit sloppy on real big flags where the spar have to be over 5 m long? Thanks for the input 🙂

    Best way to attach a big flag

    I use #3 with a spar. The angle of the flag still does change slightly with wind speed but I can live with this small amount. Took a bit of fiddling to get it right as the "pull angle" is different the further up the lifter line you go.

    Best way to attach a big flag

    I have used method number 1, but as you say it is extra weight. Maybe try method number 3, but have a spar in the white sleeve of the flag to keep that edge straight?

    Hi, I’m wanting to buy a dirtsurfer to try with a hand held wing. Located in Canberra but happy to arrange postage. thanks
  22. Hello! If you want to attach a rather big flag to your kite line, what are the best way? 1. Most popular seams to be to attach the top to the kite line and tie a weight to the bottom. Easy and seams to work well, but I don't like the feel to add something (weight) you try to keep as less as possible.. 2. Tie the top and bottom to the kite line. Easy, but the flag tilts alot which doesn't look good. And the bottom t.e. corner is destorted by the wind. 3. As no 2 but with a line between the kite line and the bottom corner of the flag so the flag is level to the ground. Like line laundry. This doesn't work, the l.e. of the flag can not be taut and flapping, destorting the entire flag. 4. Attach the entire top edge to the kite line. Same problem as no 2. 5. Use a triangle flag or a triangle attached to the kite line that the flag is attached to. Like the fock on a sail boat. More cumbersome to prepare. I've only tried no 2 (attached photo) and no 3. Do you have any tips which could be best for a flag of 25 sqm ? Br

    Buying your first Powerkite

    Thank you very much, this was exactly what I was looking for. I had some doubt between a 3m2 and 4m2 kite. I'll get a Peter Lynn Hornet 3m2 now :)
