  1. Rosebud Kite Festival 2018

    The tribe will be there!!
  2. Expression of intrest

    WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!? Well I don't need a second GT. For those who might be interested @Grants what size is the GT buggy? And admin might ask you for a price on your gear (rules of the "for sale" section).
  3. Peter Lynn F-Arc 12 or 16 New $120

    Welcome @ArcSissy I too am a bit of an ARC nutter, got 8 of them. All the high aspect ones, Scorpions, and Phantom's I + II's. Even two prototypes, a Scorpion-Phantom hybrid, and a bridled ARC. But I love the shot with the old Peel's in there!! My first power kite was a 2.5sqm Peel. I still have it, and pulled it out a few years back, only to find that we do look to our old gear with rose coloured glasses. It wasn't as good a flier as I remember it.
  4. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Yes the Michelin S83's were spitting sand every where!! I might not have been the fastest buggy on the beach, but no one had rooster tails behind them the whole day!! While the 15 year old Libre might have been outclassed by the new shiny GT's it wasn't far behind. My GT would have needed to be jammed in the little Fiesta, the Libre was already in bits from the last outing. 131km covered for the day. PS: I am glad my ARC has spars, no chance that Joel can do that with it!!! (hang on, he is Greek!?!?!) Velvet pure soap to wash your kite Doug, and some gloves required.
  5. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Can't make Saturday, but if the winds good on Sunday, I might be able to join you all. Fingers crossed.
  6. Death Kite Nomination

    It's only the 3.6!!! How lame. Try the 5.7 in 10 knots! (I can see I'll have to bring my 5.7 out to show you lot why it's the Death kite) And too much brake on the kite, let the brakes off a little. Let it run, it will produce more power.
  7. Fulcrum Down Under

    Looking good Kevin!!!
  8. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Myself, @DrWind, and @bakersdozen are headed to Sandy Point tomorrow. Lighter winds but perfect on shore winds. Any one else????
  9. Poker Face @ Kingston 2018

    So a bit rainy???? How's the clay pan? Or are you lot only on the beach this year? And on the Fett theme.....
  10. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Saturday's forecast has a bucket load of rain, so I think it wise to leave it for a Sunday run. With the wind more from the South, Sandy Point looks a pearler. Will confirm with all tomorrow, after the 5pm update from the BOM.
  11. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    After a message from @DrWind Venus Bay might be the better option for the Westerlies that are forecast. And we want wind, so what if it gets stronger.
  12. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Saturday still looking alright, any takers?? @DrWind, @bakersdozen, @igeighty, @.Joel, @Clive, @OBEwan, @rednblackmatuka, @Bill Or am I going to be Nigel no mates??
  13. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Possible run at Sandy this weekend?? Forecast looks ok for Saturday, late tide at 3:29pm.
  14. Melbourne Star

    I wonder if the "Star" is running tomorrow??? As Melbourne has just had it's hottest day in over 2 years, how long till the Star is not working due to the heat?
  15. HQ Zeekai

    Welcome @djeridoux (Jerome) Not sure there is anyone who can help. Australia is far removed from the kite buggy racing scene, and there are no races done in this country. The most common de-power race kites here are the Flysurfers and the Ozones, but there are not many around used in buggies (most are used by the Hydrofoil riders). Information on the HQ Zeekai is limited and I know of no users here in Australia. I would expect that if you find the HQ dealer in Europe, they should be able to answer your questions better than we can. Good luck.
