  2. Weather forecasts

    Windy looks fun to use. I’ll give it a go and compare to my usual prediction sites. Which is usually just MetEye and Windfinder.

  4. 2018 HQ Snow Kites

    The free race looks interesting. And would probably be very competitively priced. They have a good marketing team team too. The absence of nylon ribs in the leading edge and a lower cell count then the competition, is sold as a positive. Because it makes It one of the lightest production kites on the market.
  5. Peter Lynn arc spars for under $15

    Cheers, I never really considered wood. If the alloy doesn’t work I will replace with the wood. What size did you use? another option I thought of was the fibreglass tent rods.
  6. Just a bit of info on how to make your own replacement arc spars on the cheap with a few bits from Bunnings. Making your own spars is handy if you want to keep the original compact spars in good condition for when you travel or if buying an arc 2nd hand it can be a lot cheaper to get it shipped without the spars. (I got a 15m charger shipped from Perth for $17 kite only, vs $120 with the spars and bag) materials: 3m length of 12mm round aluminium tube from Bunnings (https://www.bunnings.com.au/metal-mate-12-x-1mm-3m-aluminium-round-tube_p1079420) 4x 13mm chair leg end caps from Bunnings (https://www.bunnings.com.au/tic-13mm-round-black-plastic-external-chair-tip-4-pack_p4050044) glue of choice. how to: simply cut the tubing to to correct length using this handy reference chart direct from Peter Lynn. next, score the alloy with some sandpaper to give the adhesive something to grab on to. choose your adhesive. It doesn’t really matter what you use because it’s only to hold the cap on when pulling the spar out of the pocket on the kite. Some examples are below. I chose the grey gasket sealant because it was already open. Really though even a few wraps of duct tape would work. Fill the cap with the adhesive. and put a bead around the top of the alloy. push the cap on, wipe off the excess and repeat for the rest of the ends. Happy days 👍
  7. Big Daddy Deluxe!

    When you get to a swag that big with so many poles and ropes to set up, why not just buy a 3 second tent and self inflating mattress?

    I second that idea!

    I was waiting for it to drab the hockey stick and start attacking the guy. at least we will hear them coming when they become self aware and decide that they no longer need mankind.
  10. The future of wind power

    Interesting. But there will be no wind on the first day of testing. Curse of the new kite
  11. Buggy bits clean out.

    Message sent about a buggy seat. @outlaw, what are the different side rails you have pictured?
  12. Watches: water, silt, mud and scum proof?

    I’m still loving my rip curl tide master 2. the tide feature and having analogue watch face is great. only issue is the battery only lasts about a year and the pre loaded tide data runs out in 2022. So I might look at getting a new watch then.
