    Yeppoon 2019

    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.

    Sand in Your Undies at Kingston SE 2019

    Good to know you left the sandhill behind Chook, and I’m sure your mileage was better after that😄. We’ve been home a few days then hooked van back on and are in Mt Barker SA for the weekend and caught up with the grandkids including our new granddaughter (Poppy) who was born a few weeks ago 7 weeks prem. Great few hours for Jen and I to nurse her as she’s not much bigger than a bag of coffee beans. There all healthy and gave us lots of hugs and kisses. Great to be a grandparent and your time will come soon enough Chook and Anne. Glad you’re home safe. 👍

    Sand in Your Undies at Kingston SE 2019

    Some awesome shots there mate. Back home, settled back in and missing Bull's coffee already. It was fantastic to catch up with close friends once again and a shame others couldn't make it. Had a brilliant trip home experiencing nature at its best with heavy fog out of Ceduna at daybreak all the way to Yalata then 46 degrees as the day warmed up further into WA. Booked into the Park at Kingston again for next year and cant wait for it to roll round. Did an oil change and filters on the Patrol, vacuumed through the old girl and she's several kilograms lighter now. (Yes Bull I got rid of "The mobile sand dune" in Meningie at the car wash while Anne grabbed lunch at the bakery. ) Good trip and covered some ground.

    Yeppoon 2019

    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. ……………….

    Had a quick session on Tuesday

    Had a short session yesterday. The forecast looked promising, 60kph with 82kph gusts, perhaps enough wind to reach my PB, who knows. Got rolling at 10am. Tide in by 11:15am, so had to be quick. The beach was in perfect condition and I had it all to myself but the wind started to drop during the hour, and of course picks up again as the tide covers the beach. Still, I topped out at 100kph but I'm paying the price. My arm is killing me. It felt broken yesterday, like I needed a sling to put it in. Today is better though. Did not bother reaching for the trim when heading up wind and because time was against me I just ignored it. The load on my right arm was too much. I need one of those trim extensions I think. Anyway, here's hoping for better conditions next time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MB9yUGw0ISg

    A hard day at work

    Now I realise that small things amuse small minds, but I found a video from a mate that sums up my day at work.

    Sadly I've no experience of this kite. After modifying my 8m Adam to depower successfully, I'd love a go on one of these. Maybe some time in the future I'll treat myself, sadly paragliding has taken over...ooops.

    Yep, it was me - you found me out. @igeightyat least we know the "owners" have a sense of humor now, so it may be a viable option . not to be confused with viagra option.

    Best Kiting Food

    Good work Southerly. I'm still rolling with no refined sugar. I'm also focusing on more veggies and less carbs in my main mean, That has trimmed a couple more kg. I'm now 75 kg at age 47, which is pretty darn good considering my racing weight in my mid 20's was 73kg. Side note there is now less kiting and more mountain biking. Mountain biking adds to aerobic fitness way more than kiting. So my endurance and general fitness is as good as it was in my 20's also. Oh yeah i'm feeling good.

    It is with heavy hearts that we loose a friend from Kingston SE this morning. Robyn from Sandy Grove was taken ill earlier this month and passed away this morning. Our kite fly will be in her honour today - and her amazing spirit and produce. She will be missed by all the frequent Kingston Kite Flyers. Please join us in a fly for Robyn wherever you may be. Robyn , may you now rest easy. Photo courtesy - Sandy Grove Facebook Page
