    Well I arrived in pissing rain once more and once that's buggered off it's been bloody brilliant. @Bernie was kind enough to store my buggy, so got it assembled with the longer axle (I built and left with @Mez in Kingston which she kindly got couriered up to @Goz workplace for me. Cheers for that guys.) Wind has been super good once it turned onshore after all the rain finished. The beach is awesome at the high tide mark and also when it gets to around 2 hours each side of low tide. Just a bit of a rougher area in the middle which bumps you about changing lines around dog walkers or horse riders. Great fun chasing cars and best of all @roblukin all over the place. The creek is a total non event this year as it's silted up with sand and it's still only 50mm deep even when the tide is up at 3mts so it's buggy till you drop conditions. Caught up with @basilandsibil over the weekend which was also brilliant. I've been knocking out cruisy 200 + km days and then playing bait for Rob's drone, fooling about while he is trying different drone settings. Even Rob's covering lots of kilometres in the fantastic winds on his buggy. Been doing lots of point runs and there is no shell grit and the beach is rock hard all the way up to the point. There is an even bigger sand bar at the point out a long way into the ocean at low tide. Dunno but it must be 700mtr or so. Even the hoons are not cutting up the beach when they are doing circle work as it's way too hard to do any damage. It's ok @gannet I'm going round all the soldier crabs. Got one up the leg of my boardies yesterday and the buggers like chicken. Chewed shit out of me with his claws before I stopped and got the little prick out. There are billions of them and even after all this time it still amazes me how they can screw into the beach quickly enough to avoid the buggy as it's approaching. We are really missing you Pete and Miss T. Big week coming up with favourable winds every day. So better get to bed and make the most of the time I have here. Cheers.

    4th day buggying. Fastest average for a kilometre so far. Rest of the week looks fantastic. Beach was 312mtrs wide today by my gps at low tide and almost too hard to dig with your fingers to sand the kite.😍 look forward to catching up @BobM the beach is outstanding.

    Yeh I reckon the discs would shine @igeighty. The beach is really nice. Awesome fun chasing Lukin all over the place. He's keeping me on my toes big time. Mind you the Midi XL's don't go too badly matey.

    If Meteye is correct we have another 7 days before the forecast winds slow down below 10 knots onshore every day. http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/meteye/ Got to run and gear up as the tide is almost out far enough and its gusting to 24 knots. The perfect direction too!!!!.

    Flysurfer VMG 13^3 - Game changer!

    Wow! That makes a lot of sense now... I was a photo retoucher for a long time, and I could find no trace of editing on those photos yesterday. I seriously couldn't figure out how they did it other than it was real, and I didn't totally believe that - I mean, who would go to all that trouble? Their ad copy on the web page totally cracks me up... "scare the hell out of your competitors" 😁

    NSW and Canberra Buggy Meet

    @Mfwetu I agree that winds don’t look good for the weekend. Let’s keep an eye on conditions and see if we can arrange another day for CANBERRA and NSW guys before the winter winds. I can probably get away for a day over the Easter period.

    Flysurfer VMG 13^3 - Game changer!

    I just googled deathblade paraglider and watched the video below. The jelly fishing of the wing at 30 seconds is incredible. I was just waiting for it to collapse UPDATE: there is a notice on the flysurfer Facebook page that it was an April fools joke (sort of) the kite itself is real and flys at intended, but the “joke” is that it’s not for sale. It is simply and r&d project. Sons of bitches. 😠

    Lucky the little fella shot up the outside leg of my shorts. It’s really red and itchy this morning. Could do with a bit of swelling on the inside leg. 😜 Poor little shit would have starved if he went up there for a feed though. Wind is cranking now just really impatient waiting for the 4.2mtr tide to recead enough.

    @Tiger37, What a difference a day can make in weather predictions. It's still too early to tell but we may yet get a session in on the weekend. I'll keep the day open and wait until Friday before deciding one way or the other

    I know those rev storage bags aren’t cheap to buy new, but $100 is asking a bit. Or maybe I’m just a cheap bastard 😄

    New Mid Season Kite releases.

    Sometimes Mid Season releases go under the radar. Here are a few new releases- Duotone Juice. We have already tested this in a 15m and their claims aren't unjustified. NAISH Triad. I think the 99% of the population bit is a reflection to an advertisement they had many years ago saying "the wrong sport for 99% of the population" Naish Dash. Freestyle/freeride Ozone Amp. Ruben rides it, what more can we say? Duotone Mono Naish Boxer

    Currarong is good if the wind is from the NE. Let's plan on meeting there at this stage and we can see closer to the day what the wind will be doing

    Come on @Goz!!!!! This will be my 8th year back in Yeppoon over Easter and I cant rely on you to get it done mate!!! All the previous years there has been a tropical cyclone in the week before I arrived to level the beach. Without exception. With T.C. Trevor it looks as if you ordered him a bit too far north ya mug. ……………….
