  1. Bye Dad.

    Heartfelt sympathy for you and your family. I'll fly one for him today
  2. eBay & Gumtree Finds

    Now reduced to $350!
  3. MEFM heading home

    It was a good day today...
  4. Dean Kite Festival

    Nice video, thanks for sharing. Love the shot of Neil and his burger!
  5. MEFM heading home

    Ooh... love the french accent
  6. Stumbled across an unflown MEFM that has spent its entire life hanging on a lounge room wall in the USA. It's currently heading back Down Under...oooh! I'm excited!!
  7. The locals just want to fly their single line kites... but they can't all fit on the sand, so it's into the water... Nice to see the kite surfers giving them space...
  8. Fulcrum Down Under

    You mean one of these? Or a "Flic" from France (these work surprisingly VERY well!)
  9. Fulcrum Down Under

    Wow, it's been 6 months and I FINALLY got a decent fly on the Fulcrum yesterday. What a beautiful kite! You definitely need to fly it as a Fulcrum, not a Rev alternative. The main difference being how you use the handles. Holding the handles in the centre, not near the top, opens up the performance of the kite. Once I discovered this, I realised why. Rev movement is concentrated around the movement of the leading edge. The Fulcrum movement is around the horizontal centre line of the kite. Duh! (Slaps hand on forehead). I flew for over an hour, loving every minute. Graceful, easy to control, easy to impress the onlookers. Saving up for a vented version now!
  10. Big kites for sale

    The black bag looks like it contains a Maestrale from HQ kites. These were produced in the late 1990s http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y143/uktotty/kites/DSC02237.jpg They are large by modern standards, designed for precision, (not tricks) best in light winds. They don't come up for sale very often these days, and even then don't usually fetch particularly high price - say, $150 -ish. The MEFM is a sought after kite. If @ieighty hadn't put his hand up for it, I would have jumped on it. As for the pink bag, what does the label say?
  11. Hi there!  Is the custom ZEN still for sale?  I saw some of the others sold but didn't see a status on the ZEN.  Cheers!

  12. Yeppoon 2018

    Well done Theresa!
  13. @nigel did a great job all weekend... in more ways than one!
  14. WTB Framed Quad

    I would caution getting too excited. There's always a lot of hype surrounding John's upcoming creations, especially as John can make them look fantastic in his teaser vids. (He is a VERY accomplished flyer, remember). It looks to be another Rev variant, albeit with tweaks. But the proof is always in the pudding, and his Kymera turned out to be, shall we say, ... an acquired taste ...not the sort of pudding that many people liked.

    I totally agree about the "Storm vent". In fact I sold my Rev Xtra vent because I think the Storm is a much better kite.
