    Finally had a moment to throw this quick edit together of our session the other week. YouTube seems to have shat on my image quality, but you get the idea ūüėÉ

    Hi Grants, 
    If you do get the landseglers. It may be an idea to get the 100mm wide ones, they are excellent as Skinnies but still wide enough to allow you to run on the softer beach, Ill Give you a run on mine at Kingston.
     
    regards.

    hi @Chookie, 
    Yes mate, I love them, a couple of weeks ago at a small kite event in western Victoria I had a good play with Ricky Bakers 10m Trilobite. I think I was hooked. then I saw these white ones for sale on Ali, I knew I had to have them. I bought myself some decent spectra, 100m of 175kg,750kg and 1200kg and ordered the 36 and 7, and the jellyfish (Blob Marley) for mezz.
    Up at the Eden whale festival, Ian Burrell had a 2m the wind was cracking 35-40 knots and the little 2m was right at home.
    I will get myself a 3 and a 16 also this Monday all in white.. (Ali express has its 11.11 sale) with the 3 as low as $65. Mum would like a 3m also, but I think ill get her a 7 for Christmas 
    Hopefully tomorrow I will get out and give the 36 a crack, (that's what the 1200kg line is for)
     
    Bring yours to Kingston, I know a few others from Adelaide have them too. And Bull has one or two (probably more by now) and we can see how many we can get up at once.

    First go at the Trilobite 7. It is still too wet to fly the 36. as it doesn't fit it our small lounge to dry out. as it is the 7 is taking up the entire lounge just drying out.
    I went for the white ones as I haven't seen these before. Perhaps later I can make some color for it. but I really like the white

    Meet 'Blob Marley' the 18m Jellyfish. It arrived a day after the whale festival and so did the rain. today was a nice day but wind speed of 3 knots
     
    Amazing quality for a Chinese kite. excellent stitching and great construction. pretty hard to beat for the price. (AUD$340 with shipping)
     
    Its brothers and sisters are still lodged deeply in the sunshine west blackhole.

    Awesome afternoon on the beach - had it all to ourselves soaking up the beautiful sun and on-shore breeze. Magic! Will have a look at the GoPro footage later on tonight and maybe do a quick edit if suitable.

    So pleased you all had one decent day. Sounds like a great run.  I’m still in the Flinders National Park where we too have experienced differing weather conditions from 19 degrees and strong winds one day to 40 degree swealtering heat the next. Hope to catch up with you all soon.

    Monday has been perfect for a long buggy and board session. Rob, Mark and I tore up the beach from Waratah bay to the inlet. Warm sunshine, smooth light onshore wind and an empty beach. We all left for home at 7 pm with big grins. Very satisfying.
