    NSW and Canberra Buggy Meet

    I'll be day-tripping and I travel light so it doesn't matter to me although 7-mile is a bit closer for those coming from Canberra

    The things you find at jaycar

    Classic! I tried a store search for hoverboard but they must be out of those too Are you maybe confusing this with the fux capacitor?

    Nasa Star 4

    On 40m lines if you're content with big slow turns you don't need a lot of force to bring the kite around but if you want to hurry things up then you've got to give a good strong pull. I did try a 4m NS3 on this setup and it worked well - turned really quickly with minimal input but unfortunately just wasn't big enough to ski behind.

    Tides are better for the weekends of 2-3 Feb, 16-17 Feb or 2-3 Mar. Can't tell what the winds will be doing at this early stage so I guess we settle on an date and hope the winds blow fair. I'm flexible on dates.

    Blowback in time.... Spartan Kite Skating!

    Hi @Htxdea, welcome to the forum. I had exactly the same idea as you and was lucky enough to pick up a good second-hand pair of Powerslide nordic skates. They feel very different to inline skates and skis so I've taken a while to get into them but they are a lot of fun - even @carltb has got himself a pair now although he spends so much time in the air it doesn't really matter what he's riding They do cost a bomb so suggest you buy second hand or borrow before committing - you may find you prefer the off-road inline models rather than the "wheels of doom" nordic skates. I could be wrong but I think that @windstruck played about with both styles before an unfortunate accident made him change his ride. Have a look at his posts under this section of the forum

    Chasta's Flow

    Chasta and the Peak 4 making each other look good Nice to see the amount of development going into SS kites these days with a number of manufacturers borrowing concepts from each other to create better and better kites. I was ready to pull the pin on a Shaman just before the Explore came out but now I think I'll just sit back and see what else is going to hit the market - so many fantastic new models coming out right now.

    Peter Lynn Nova - Closed Cell Foil

    Nice looking kite. Any idea whether this is a traditional closed cell foil or is it a cross-over like the Ozone Hyperlink or the HQ Empulse ?
