    Easter @ Yeppoon

    until
    Well 2016 is well under way and once again we are heading to Yeppoon for Easter. This year the Easter weekend is at the end of March, the 25th to the 28th to be exact, but as usual there will be some of us that stay longer. To be honest, there was only a few of us that showed up last year and although we still had a great time, I hope to see more people there this year.

    Easter @ Yeppoon 2015

    So, what do Christians and Kiters have in common??? They both pray for something they can't see? Kites go in the sky and that's where god is? They both talk a lot of shit? Give up?.......... The thing that Christians and Kiters have in common, is that Easter is the most important time of the year. That's right it's time to start the thread for the 2015 Extreme Kites Easter meet @ Yeppoon. Yeppoon is one of the best spots for kite buggying in Australia, with a super wide and rock hard beach. There is usually enough beach for buggying from 1hr either side of high tide, so it allows for long days on the beach and some big distances to be clocked up in the buggy. It is also a very quiet beach and even over the easter weekend, the beaches where we buggy remain uncrowded. In 2015 the dates for Easter are Friday 3rd April - Monday 6th April But like every year there will be a few of us that stay for longer, to enjoy the stronger winds that always show up just after Jason (from BrisKites) goes home This time we will be staying an extra 2 weeks after Easter, which coincides with the school holidays. There will also be the usual BBQ on the Easter Saturday night for all the kiters and their families. You can book accommodation through Driftwood Units. It's right on the beach and has a large grassy yard to park the buggies and lay out kites to dry. Or there are plenty of other accommodation options in Yeppoon Hope to see all the regulars there again and maybe some new faces. And who knows, 2015 may be the year we tempt some Victorians to finally head north for a holiday In the meantime, here's some video from last year to get you excited

    Murraire show grounds

    Murrarie Sports grounds Landboard, Buggy, Static fly Wynnum Road, Murrarie .... just opposite the Caltex/a little down the road from Cannon Hill Shoping Centre. Landboard, Buggy, Static fly Toilets BBQ's BMX and Skate board bowl About 10 Acres of rubbish dump ..... re-claimed from the 80's and its wasteful ways .... made safe for us all by a few 100 mm of topsoil and a layer of turf.......... Murrarie is a fine example of re-cycling You can pretty much set up anywhere you like, there is plenty of room Watch out fo poltergusts as the park is 'girthed by tree' This thread ..... hopefuly will become a moot place like the Bribie thread. If your heading down to Murrarie, are thinking about heading down or have been there and just want a place to post your pics or tell of your adventures This is the place to post Saturday 17th May Mick .... Kondor man .... and a new dude or 2 are heading for a slash this morning I (Satuday), it looks like a fairly light day ahead, a good day to stetch out the big kites ....good to hear fom you Mr K I have to drop off Wolfies chariot @ the park so I might see you there Sunday 17th May Tom and I will (probably I) ..... (I am a maybe for Sunday due to poor sick pregnent people.. . . , . I will see how the day pans out) meet Jeremy there on Sunday to have a bit of a high end test. Wind is predicted to be 20 - 25k SW so make sure you bring you paddies and be prepared for some gusts.... it may also be showery at the least, It should be interesting Happy Days
  7. For all things Marcia Predicting Category 5 now, I think that warrants its own thread. Last nights prediction Tonight's prediction (things are getting serious now.) Creal Reef station is reporting 139km/hr and -25C (something definite strangeness going on near the eye) Hope everyone affected stays safe and comes out the other side OK
  8. speaking of all manner of kiteing. I dont know if I had anything to do with it but ever so slowly more and more little stunt kites started sprouting up in the air where I was on farnborough today was awesome like a mini kite festival bout half a dozen at one time hahaha was very difficuly to not jump over there and smash them all with my big kite I decided I looked like enough of a knob allready tho with the tripods n helmet cams and failing to do the simplest of tricks. but yeah thats awesome that some of you will be here for the 2 weeks I approached the local kiters down in that little wind window that you said do the gki crossing. they only go from gki to farnborough slackers, and they kite down there so people can watch them ...... hahaha *sigh* some people ay hahaha but yeah coastguard gave me a heads up and some advice so next time suns out and steady light wind im going to kite to pumpkin island aka XXXX ISLAND! how good is that?! I had no idea it was in yeppoon and its closer then GKI I reckon those of you that have boards should raid XXXX island maybe its where they keep all the promo girls I could even get my photo with them
  9. We normally stay at the driftwood units. But probably anywhere around that area is good. We usually base ourselves on the beach out the front of the units as its a quiet area of the beach without too many people. The event is defiantly kid and family friendly. Wolfie usually has his buggy trailer there, taking people for rides and we all have small kites that the kids can borrow to static fly if they want. Even if the kids aren't into kiting, they are still at a great beach and holiday town. The only issue is to tell the kids that they need to watch out for the buggies and don't just run across the beach. Hope to see you there in 2014

    Where in Brizvegas to live?

    I've just applied for a job in Brisbane and if successful will need to move to Brizvegas! I have no idea if I will get the job or not but one of the things I need to do is start thinking about where I want to live. The company is located on Upper Edward St in Spring Hill and I'm told it has good access to public transport. Any suggestions of places within a reasonable reach of Brisbane that also offer good opportunity for Kite Buggying? :)

  15. Hello peoples, i am heading to townsville on sunday 20th july, and return the following friday night. i am interested in catching up with any kite flyers in and around the townsville area. i am also interested in searching out land kiting venues, beaches, dry lakes, paddocks, parklands, if you think its worth a look, and a fly, let me know. can you fly a kite on castle hill???? i'm going to find out!! I'll be staying at Rowes Bay Caravan Park, Cabin #4, and will have a great view of the afternoon kitesurfers from my cabin window, but would prefer to be flying a kite than watching. Peter

    Seasonal Lull

    No wind for weeks here in sunny Bundy, anyone down south by anychance had any northerlies come through? Light westerlies and very light SE coming in this avo, so it must be on it's way sometime soon. For those up north, the turn around on the trades happens generally later in the season traditionally. But who knows, the wind is changing as ocean temps change.

    Cairns Visit

    Hi there to all. I will be visiting Cairns from the 14th Jan for 2 weeks. I was wondering if someone up there may be able to lend me a bug here and there for a few blasts about. Await a reply.
  23. Buggying has now been banned in Pelican park for a number of years now. I think it's time to re-visit the prospect of having it reinstated. Any thoughts?
  24. My girlfriend was trying to talk me into going the the Victorian snow fields the other day (we're in Melbourne). As she obviously expected, I went into my usual rant about what a ripoff the snowfields are and how neither of us are skiers so basically you're just spending a fortune to get cold and wet. I then brought out my well worn opinion that you could afford a week in Queensland for the price of a weekend at the snow here in Vic..... Fell right into her trap So now we're off to Port Douglas and Palm Cove for some days in the sun from September 14 to 20. I really should have seen that coming. Anyway, I'm planning on smuggling a couple of kites along in my suitcase to fend off withdrawal symptoms. (BTW what do you call kite withdrawal? With drinkers it's the DT's....so maybe KT's??) Sorry it's 4am and my mind wanders a bit this time of the morning. Anyway, do any of you QLD locals fly anywhere around Port Douglas? Would be nice to catch up with one or two of you while we're up there. Cheers OBEwan
