  2. Whilst watching Coast New Zealand - we came across this lovely short video of the rather large gathering at New Brighton (Christchurch, NZ) for a Kite Festival. Lately when the winds have been off shore and the tides, shoddy..... @igeighty and myself have been static flying with a few other kite enthusiasts. I must say its a different experience kite flying static kites but I do miss the roar of the waves. Coast_-_Kites_1.mp4
  3. Ripiro Beach is located on the Kaipara Coast line, (North West of the North Island of New Zealand) (close to Glinks Gully where the Moose Meet is held) Taken from the Coast New Zealand - aired May last year. Ripiro Beach is a 107lm long golden beach and is a gazetted highway so the standard rules of the road apply. It is possible to drive along its hard sands two hours either side of low tide, 4WD vehicles are recommended. It is suggested that you ask locals about the conditions before venturing on to the sands. Fantastic location for buggies and land yachts and yet another reason to attend the Moose Meet future events. Coast - Blokart 1.mp4

    new buggy spot near Barwon Heads.

    But the tip looks a little soft and sticky in places, but you’d have to be nuts not to go and have a look!
  7. Hi All, Well our time in Kingston S.E has certainly excited us and the Victorian flyers are keen for some more buggy action. Looking at the tides and weather and wind depending, how about the weekend of Saturday 16th February and Sunday 17th February? The low tides appear at the end of the month but stretch across the week. If it works out, we will organise it closer to the date. We will plan on camping the night at the caravan park.

    Videos from Facebook

    Joel, The last couple of videos you have posted (Chasta's Flow and f**K it) have videos taken from what seems to be Facebook. They will not play my end on the mac. Do you think I have to be signed in? Mez

    eBay & Gumtree Finds

    Never heard of them either and last time we were up at Flynns Beach (Christmas time) They weren't there. Hasn't been a kite shop in Port for years!

    Best Kiting Food

    We don't have a particular one but @nigel and his dash board donuts are a winner in the colder days out on the beach.! As for the sugar, about 5 years ago I calculated that 2 tea spoons of sugar in about 3to4 cups per day of either tea or coffee accumulated to about 5kgs of sugar a year so I ditched the sugar in the hot drinks. I must admit, the keeping busy works. If your mind is focussed on something the craving disappears. Another good habit to ditch is snacking in front of the telly. You will become used to eating chips, etc and then your body says to you, okay routine is to snack. Sometimes just getting up to do something else will help stop the crave. And lots of water, as 9/10 a grumbly belly is a belly which needs a drink.

    Something diffetent

    @DrWind - That had some WOW factor. Especially the scene around the whales.
  12. KINGSTON S.E 2019 Its that time again everyone, to start planning the main event of the Extreme Kites Group. (Correct me if I'm wrong @.Joel as the earliest thread I can see dates 2003) For the last 15 years, kiters have got together for the meet of the year and the best way to start the year with a catch up in Kingston S.E in South Australia. Kiters come from all corners of the country from Experience, WA to Canberra, ACT to buggy the long stretch of beach from The Blackford Drain up to the Granites, or if the weather is perfect, a ride out on the Lake Nadzab aka The Clay Pan. Members usually stay at the Kingston Foreshore Caravan Park for the duration of their trip, a fully equipment park with unpowered/powered sites, basic/delux cabins and decent bathroom and kitchen facilities and on Australia Day, put on a fantastic Ariel kite display for the general public. This is a non-organised event, it just happens as a way to celebrate a great meet up. This year, myself and @igeighty, along with @roblukin are planning on a slightly longer trip over. Arriving onsite on Saturday 5th January 2019 and heading back home on Sunday 27th January 2019. (Of cause we don't expect everyone to stay for 3 weeks, but its general idea of the dates) We have already made our site bookings and are now on the exciting countdown until we can head over. So if each year you've ummed and arrred about heading over, do it and you'll find that you'll return again and again each year as we have. Looking forwards to seeing you all! Mez
  13. Yes....yes he would!
  14. Hi @igeighty, Im viewing in 1080 (or so the video says) You've done an excellent job on the editing of this (well worth the time you took over it too) Well Done. To everyone else, enjoy!

  18. It is with heavy hearts that we loose a friend from Kingston SE this morning. Robyn from Sandy Grove was taken ill earlier this month and passed away this morning. Our kite fly will be in her honour today - and her amazing spirit and produce. She will be missed by all the frequent Kingston Kite Flyers. Please join us in a fly for Robyn wherever you may be. Robyn , may you now rest easy. Photo courtesy - Sandy Grove Facebook Page
  19. Should be doing a beach run today - around 11am so see you out there
  20. Whoops - I was mis-informed. SPASIBO (Thank you in Russian) From where we were set up, we got to only admire his bottom!
  21. Are you here yet @CasualRural Orange Superman is a Peter Lynn Astronaught - he’s pretty spectacular isn’t he? We had an excellent day out of the beach yesterday. Anne, John, Dougie, Maggie and I all had a swim whilst watching Chook get out the biggest kite (dooner) I have ever seen. He did a couple of trips from just up from the Drain to the Granites and John also put a kite in the air. I had the Blo-fly tacking and jibing the beach and was mastering some upwind and downwind turns as the wind picked up strength, with both Dougie, John and Chook also having a go. The gradually strengthening wind was just perfect to get back into it as I hadn’t been out since Kingston 2018 - Dougie got some awesome footage on the drone which I’m sure will be made into a video once we’re home. The night finished up with a pub meal along with Bull and Jen and a sing-song with Anne Yesterday was a good day with good people.
  22. Nice to hear you’re both now settling in - been on a few missions today in preparation. See you later in the week.
