    Tribe of Trilobites

    hi @Chookie, Yes mate, I love them, a couple of weeks ago at a small kite event in western Victoria I had a good play with Ricky Bakers 10m Trilobite. I think I was hooked. then I saw these white ones for sale on Ali, I knew I had to have them. I bought myself some decent spectra, 100m of 175kg,750kg and 1200kg and ordered the 36 and 7, and the jellyfish (Blob Marley) for mezz. Up at the Eden whale festival, Ian Burrell had a 2m the wind was cracking 35-40 knots and the little 2m was right at home. I will get myself a 3 and a 16 also this Monday all in white.. (Ali express has its 11.11 sale) with the 3 as low as $65. Mum would like a 3m also, but I think ill get her a 7 for Christmas Hopefully tomorrow I will get out and give the 36 a crack, (that's what the 1200kg line is for) Bring yours to Kingston, I know a few others from Adelaide have them too. And Bull has one or two (probably more by now) and we can see how many we can get up at once.

    Finally had a moment to throw this quick edit together of our session the other week. YouTube seems to have shat on my image quality, but you get the idea 😃

    Haven’t posted in while been busy more with music compositions, but still kiting and slope soaring my gliders with my son Zachary here in Christchurch. The Distraction by Norman Freund https://youtu.be/0exNctKqQkc Special thanks to my son Zachary for helping out with the time lapse pre-processing and advice during the music production. No I have not switched to LEI’s ha ha, some one else kiting in the beach scene. Hey @bakersdozen, thanks for putting me on to the Reaper DAW (Digital Workstation). Takes a bit to get used to it to feel free enough to be creative with it. I tried putting the video together with Adobe Premier Elements, very clunky, wrecked the quality, too slow …. . So I thought why not try the video editor that comes with the music DAW, Reaper, hey not bad. Cutting up the video segments and synchronising with the music phrases is simple in Reaper since your composition is already there with all the cues and midi notes. The video quality in Reaper is good too. Hope you like it. Music only copy on Soundcloud at: https://soundcloud.com/norman-freund/the-distraction Regards, Norman Freund

    Gt race order

    Hi Grants, If you do get the landseglers. It may be an idea to get the 100mm wide ones, they are excellent as Skinnies but still wide enough to allow you to run on the softer beach, Ill Give you a run on mine at Kingston. regards. Dougie

    we do quite often down here.. 8 part of turp and 1 part of silicon..my old twinskin come new again and waterproof... i think the treatment lasts about 3 months.. the bad point is the time to spray or brush the liquid..imagine to do it on big kites...like chargher 19, speed21 etc

    Tribe of Trilobites

    First go at the Trilobite 7. It is still too wet to fly the 36. as it doesn't fit it our small lounge to dry out. as it is the 7 is taking up the entire lounge just drying out. I went for the white ones as I haven't seen these before. Perhaps later I can make some color for it. but I really like the white

    U turn kites

    thanks @igeighty and @mik333 if my left arm needs a splint I'm in deep shit PS @mik333 the only bones I've broken in the buggy (technically just after leaving the buggy) are my little finger (used a bi-roe to splint that) and a rib. So probably just to splint a limb.

    Bye Dad.

    Sometimes things just don't go to plan... Jim Theodorakopoulos 26/09/1963 - 10/11/2018 My Dad's battle with cancer is now over, but the memories he left behind are not. For nearly 15 years he'd come to our Sandy Point meets and lend a hand, a lot of people here will remember him from the XK Meets where he'd come setup the Gyros and cook. Dad's first passion was Fishing, he'd always pack his rods then comment that I would "find the windiest blown out places on the face of the earth." So eventually he put the rods away, bought a Kite Buggy and packed that instead. Once his kite control and confidence grew, so did the blind optimism that despite whatever the forecast said it was going to be a good day's kiting and we should go! I'll miss him, our family will miss him, and his grand daughter who grew exceptionally close to him the last six months will really miss him.
