  1. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Sure is, tides for Sandy Point look amazing so we're planning on going down and just doing a day trip to Rosebud on the Sunday.
  2. For most people I doubt that extra drag would be significant, for example I'd take @Chook's 'buggy bridle' on his R1 over my naked bridles on my R1's.
  3. Listen to the audio on this one, "eliminate the constant pain in the ass tuning process"
  4. Happy Birthday Jase

    Didn't happen to buy anything kiting related? Even a washer for the buggy can have that affect... Happy B'Day
  5. Oy Joel.

    Awesome Chook, that looks like a really good design I'd just have it made so the buggy sits the other way around. Here's a video of it...

    Awesome trip! @rednblackmatuka, @bakersdozen & I camped at Waratah Bay for the night and slept under the stars all night with the swags open. I'm sure Mark's swag was "vaping" at times Woke up to a beautiful morning and views of the water in the distance, we could see the wind come through as the white caps hit. Toasted sandwiches on the BBQ then off to the beach to catch up with @Mez, @igeighty & @nigel. Wind was onshore from the moment we stepped on the beach, kited for a while and then the wind felt like it stabilised a bit and picked up out towards the point. My first day on the 7M R1 and managed to break 81km/h which I was happy with. Nigel spent the day playing in the sand with his wheels Overall a great day! The Silver Fox just chilling.... PS @Mez & @igeighty thank you for bringing my socks back!

    Can't remember, I'll check on Saturday as my kites are no longer stored at home

    Saturday is starting to look better, especially the afternoon. Sunday is looking a good 10 to 15 knot cruise for the afternoon!
  11. Summer 2017/18 Sandy Point Sessions

    Saturday looks pretty poor, Sunday looks immaculate! This far out though, that may change and we get two ripper days!
  12. @Chook's Freilein for me
  13. Death Kite Nomination

    Thanks @igeighty and @Mez for getting this kicked off, I was waiting for Russell Coight to be nominated

    @bakersdozen tides for Sat 10th / Sun 11th...... The Kingston Redemption... ? PB's updated Using @Chookonomics based on the day's windspeed, @nigel only had to roll down-wind at 10km/h for an hour
  15. Poker Face @ Kingston 2018

    Awesome day today, dropped in to the Sandy Grove farm cafe. Then headed down to the beach at around lunchtime, put out the 10M "Heineken" R1 and chased a @Chook up and down the beach for the afternoon Overall one of the best day's kiting I've had in the last 12 months, and that 10M R1 was just an absolute gem of a kite to fly for the day. Did 3 trips to the granites, top speed just over 74km/h and a few airborne moments over some rises in the beach. If it wasn't for the tide coming in I reckon I would of gone another 3 hours without getting out of the buggy as it was just that comfortable. @Mez was out with the camera putting herself on the line for the perfect shot @roblukin and @igeighty dropped off a nice surprise for lunch tomorrow ty fellas! Looking forward to seeing the large kites on the beach tomorrow morning, Olivia loved watching them yesterday with Mel. We'll spend some time down there then head off to the beach again for more bugging
