Nice to meet you John, Plummet!
Plummet, I'm originally a Naki' man myself, Ex NPBHS, finishing in 1995. I'll be visiting family in New Plymouth sometime in the next month. I take it back beach is your playground? I used to fly RC gliders off the cliffs around there. Might meet you there one day.
I've met Butch from Wind Warrior kites, and when I buy a new board I will buy it through him. In the meantime I want to keep start up using 2nd hand gear if possible, to gauge how far i want to take it, without spenting $$$. Not many 2nd hand Landboards or buggies around though.
In the meantime i'll keep flying my Cult 3.5 static, getting usd to how much pull you can get from a small kite, even in light linds when you work it!
