    What do you think my chances are of getting a warranty claim on one of the extreme kites t-shirts? 
    I love this shirt, but after ONLY 8 years of regular exposure to sweat, salt water, sunscreen and sunlight it has started to fall apart. 
    @.Joel what was the warranty period on these shirts, because I feel like I should of got at least 10yrs out of it? 😄

    Had to upload this photo. Tibbey's brother-in-law is a photographer and captured this excellent picture of the "Tamer"
    Here is "Blob Marley" and two of the white Trilobites. I think its a great photo.

    We won't be there this year, it's too close to No2.  Does anyone know if Sandy Grove is still operating?

    Haven’t posted in while been busy more with music compositions, but still kiting and slope soaring my gliders with my son Zachary here in Christchurch.

    Special thanks to my son Zachary for helping out with the time lapse pre-processing and advice during the music production.
    No I have not switched to LEI’s ha ha, some one else kiting in the beach scene.
    Hey  @bakersdozen, thanks for putting me on to the Reaper DAW (Digital Workstation). Takes a bit to get used to it to feel free enough to be creative with it. I tried putting the video together with  Adobe Premier Elements, very clunky, wrecked the quality, too slow …. . So I thought why not try the video editor that comes with the music DAW, Reaper, hey not bad. Cutting up the video segments and synchronising with the music phrases is simple in Reaper since your composition is already there with all the cues and midi notes. The video quality in Reaper is good too.
    Hope you like it.

    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.

    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.

    Must be time for an official 2020 Kingston thread.  Dates will be however long you wish to stay up until Australia Day (26th Jan). (later if you wish).  Some of us turn up two weeks prior, some one week prior.  It's all very casual with no particular structure.  I think the Blokarts will be there again this year - if you've got any details of that, pop it in below.    Let's hope for a dry claypan and a clean beach.  I'm booked in 13th - 26th and will bring a few more single liners this year as the foreshore fly is becoming more and more spectacular every year.  Looking forward to seeing you all there.
