    We have the same hassle here. Winter storms have removed a hell of a lot of the width of our beaches.

    G'day Pari. Very clever mate. I loved your wheels and now this is true craftsmanship once again. Keep the pic coming it's looking awesome.

    Thanks Juan. I have a 15m Chrono V2 and a 15 R1 and they are very different kites with the Chrono 2 being MUCH more docile. Would love to buggy with an Aero just to compare. It looks fantastic in your videos. Even the Ozone R1 V2 is dulled down from the original R1's. V2 is much lighter, has better manners, incredibly delicate materials, but seems to lack the top end speed of the first R1's. Would love to know if it's just my imagination. I also love my 18m Joker 7 ELF. Its one hell of a kite. Extremely well behaved and goes like hell when the wind comes up. Been to 76kmh with it. Would love to get an original 21m R1 to get buggying in really low wind. If anyone has an old one, or I would even consider a damaged one I can repair. Cheers.

    How did you manage to run into him Juan as you seem to be looking that direction. I'd love to buggy with you guys but can only speak English and live the other side of the planet. Another great video. I love your efforts. Keep them coming mate. Cheers.
  9. Ha ha. Ahh thanks, so that's where I was getting ballzed up. Andy got married last month!
  10. Thank you Kevin. Now I just have to track down that bridal line Andy gave me.

    Now this is interesting

    At 2.33 he mentions the fabric is also less than half the weight of dacron at 70gm2 so agree with you Kami. Unreal materials that may even be Lukin proof. Eh @roblukin
  12. Starting to get organized @KaoS. I know, I know Kevin. Yes WA stands for Wait a While. These measurements are to the plastic end caps? If so, then I would have to add some extra bridal for attachment loops and knots to get to these final figures? Cheers.

    Sysmic S3

    Now I love my old Sysmic 2's but this is really compact! All alloy and into a bag for travel which is pretty cool. Or just folds up. And a fibreglass axle. http://www.buggykiteshop.com/index.php/buggy/sysmic-s3-a.html
