    Best Kiting Food

    So what is your favourite or best kiting food to get you going in the morning and keep you going well into the day for kiting? Here is what we have as a tradition on the weekends, 50% - %50 flour and ground oats pan cakes. Keeps us going till late afternoon. Served best with a spread of butter, stewed blue berries and cream on top, not to forget a strong cup of black coffee and good company. Variations include, toppings of either nutella, honey or lemon juice+icing sugar.

    Venus Bay run

    Got a low-wind run at Venus bay yesterday and it was GREAT! The wind was dead on which opened up the whole of the bay (all 20 plus km of it), and although the tides weren't really low, there was still plenty of beach to be had. Interestingly I had more dog attention than usual - I think because the kite is black and looks more like a huge bird of prey. Fortunately I was going pretty slow when I nudged the Collie. As for the Jack Russell - he just took one look at the kite and ran . . . and ran . . .and ran. The Spleene was every bit the low-wind monster all the reviews indicate. Hope the video gets you in the mood!

    And another video

    Here's some footage from Dingley park last weekend. Hopefully the angles will give you all a better perspective of the location for buggying / landboarding. Wind was from the north and at about 15 knots (dropping off as the sun set). Kite is 12.5 Montana. First time out with the drone (lots to learn).

  9. Hi all, I really hope it's not just me, but I'm struggling to see how I list and sell some spectacular kiting gear on this site. I've searched and can see where, but more importantly I cannot see HOW to list my items. There's no 'create a buy/sell listing' or 'sell' button anywhere! - please advise. Many thanks in advance.

    FS: Naish Boxer 12m - $100

    It has some water stains near the middle LE bladder as shown, but nothing to distort the kite in any way. All bladders hold air. Individual strutt pump system. A great kite, but I am not going to use it much. It's been my rental kite for the last 5 months and it's done my clients and myself well. I've got other better kites to hire anyway, so just want to get rid of it. Comes with 5-th line extension for a 5-line bar or can be removed for your 4-line bar. $100 firm + postage
  12. Thought I'd upload some old kiteskiing pics from 2001 and 2003. The earlier ones are with skis and handles, yet I determined that bars and snowboards made much more sense. Kites were PL 5.7 Waterfoil (very early days) and PL 1120 ARC (way ahead of its time). I have some accompanying video though I need to wait a week for Vimeo to reset my quota (free account :-) ). Snowkiting is amazing, and Australia is the perfect place for it (undulating hills). From Scotts chair out to Mt McKay is my favorite spot. Close enough to be rescued (if needs be) yet far enough to enjoy the silence!

    Oval Buggying

    Looks like I need to get some credit points before I can PM so here's a start: One of my favorite buggying spots - mainly as I can walk the buggy there in 5 mins! Only tricky when there are footballers about ;-)

    Street kiting with MBS landboard, which kite?

    Hey guys, just asking for advice. Recently my work has asked us all to park our cars in a new carpark about 400m away from work and walk. I don't mind the walking, but sometimes when the wind is up, I wish I could just street kite to and from work, especially as it's clear of trees and all asphalt. There is plenty of room with a bonus slight downhill section right into work, but a slight up hill from the car. It takes about 5mins to walk, but I reckon it would take me less than 2 mins if I could street kite. What short line kite would you recommend, and I assume it would be flown purely on handles? I have a Peter Lynn Viper 2.6m kite which would fly really nicely on handle but I have yet to try it. Or would a NASA be better, as I would not waste time trying to inflate the kite? Yeah something that I can just pop open and go? An umbrella?! LOL

    Griffin ArgoX 2017

    Some early photos of the Griffin ArgoX 2017 kites going in to production. I'll take a nice pat on the back for modifying the Logo for Entries 2 and 3 as well for this competition last year which made their way on to the kites
  16. No, that's not a mistake.... Rub your eyes a bit.... Let this sink in properly.... PKD has come back from the dead with their first ever depower kite being a closed cell race kite called the Inferno! Kite & Friends have a video of a pre-production 12M kite and like most things PKD, they don't do it often but when they do it usually looks stunning or menacing. I have a soft spot for PKD, over a decade ago they were my very first kite and they've always produced a robust, well-built kite. The profile shape, the colours, the overall appearance and presence of the kite in this video looks brilliant. Welcome back PKD, there's still some life in this dark horse yet...

    the long way back

    Chapter 1 history The first time I flew a two line kite I was about 16 or 17, my dad got a Peter Powell (a blue plastic diamond with an ally frame sprung at the tip) I flew it a few times but I had other more pressing things on my mined (motor bikes, boos and girls in that order). By the time I got to 18 I dropped the boos as the bike was now a T500 two stroke twin (about 120 125hph) and speed was king (I've never lost the love of bikes just too broken to ride any more). I then discovered caving and pot holes, becoming totally obsessed with it, to the point of missing out on the pub sessions, this worried some of the club member. the little hard core group managed to get to places visited by only a very few people and on occasions going where no one had gone before. I even took up cave diving (not the type seen on TV the type you have to remove your gear under water to force your way through a squeeze and visibility was less than swimming in a week old pot off billy tea). This all stopped (the caving) when I moved from Yorkshire to Scotland the caves were just to far away (little did I know). I'd moved to Bridge of Don, Aberdeen and one day whilst riding my mt. bike along the esplanade I spotted 3 guys flying kites, so I pulled over and went to chat, next thing I'm flying a kite (think it was ether a swallow tail or a phantom) instantly I was hooked, the next week I got a skynasour delta (the only thing available). The next time I went down to Yorkshire to visit the folks I popped in to Leeds corn exchange to visit Mark at Leading Edge Kites (home of Fizz and Tim Benson) and came away with a Phantom. From then on more kites came in the mail, visited more shops and started to go to festivals (average 850miles,1300k round trip) and at my first festival I picked up my first buggy. next instalment may include fling to Wildwood NY USA visits to Oz, love, moving to Oz, marriage, kids and disaster or it may be a load of old toss. But eventually it will get to flying. may your winds blow freely and in the words of Mel I am not a number BBC 065 Add for my first kite Chapter 2 Flying high So now I’m going to as many kite festivals as I can 2 or 3 a month and in Aberdeen the days are long in the summer so I fly after work and am oft seen riding the mountain bike with the front wheel of my buggy strapped on the rack and several bags of kites strapped in the buggy. It took me a long while to get round to buying a car (don’t like cars or lamingtons)and just use a hire car on the weekends I travelled down south or share a car. My girlfriend at the time reckoned she was a kite widow and this was wears than being a golf widow. I was having a great time and getting pretty good but the long winters where starting to drag, work was getting harder as a contract designer in the oil industry I was working about 6 months a year but getting more cash than when I was staff, the hours where interfering with my flying time (about 10 to 14hrs a day some times more)(that’s the work not flying time). Then bad new hit, nephew had incurable leukaemia, my brother and family had migrated to Australia a few years back and shortly after discover the leukaemia and went through all the treatments. So I went to my boss explained the situation to him and since we were in a lull between the sales proposal and getting the order I got 3 weeks of and flew out to Perth. Over the next 6 months to see him. It was during the first of these trips that I met Neil Taylor and after meeting only ones or twice I was looking after his shop so he could go to an Indonesian kite festival. I loved it in Oz so much I sold my flat in Aberdeen put all my furniture in storage and spent a year out hear toward the end of my year I met a young French women how I later visited in Sydney during The FOW 1996 we met up later before my visa ran out and I had to go back to the UK where I was offered a job working the kite festivals (a dream come true). But after a visit from Muriel (I’d learnt her name now) over new years and visiting her family in France plans changed and we got married on the 4th of July (dependents day) 98 and lived in Sydney where we had our first baby on Friday the 13th May 99 moving to Perth 6 months later, as you may imagine my flying days started to diminish and by the time we had our second December 2001 it had just about gone. But that’s OK life goes on and as they grow I can teach them, that plan went wrong as I had my own personal 9-11 but in 2002 next instalment may include details of disaster and may be some flying may your winds blow freely may your kite not touch the ground till you won’t it to and in the words of Mel I am not a number BBC 065 Chapter III I was living in the suburbs of Perth a place called Yangebup and riding home on my GSXR 750 after a 10hr day grinding chamfers with a 9” angle grinder thinking has Osama bin Laden given us an anniversary present, when a guy in a Land Curser Ute pulled out in front of me. I reckoned I had no time to brake so I tried to go around and missed. I clipped the bull bar getting my left arm between it and the front of the ute, having remodel my arm I continued along the bull bar till my knee contacted a shovel tied there(the surgeon later told me he’d put his hand in). I then proceeded to slide along the road where I lay for what seemed like hours listening to the sirens of the ambulance that had taken the wrong exit off the freeway. In E R I finally got to look at my arm and it looked like I’d no forearm, just elbow then hand to which I said “looks like that my sex life don for a while”. The Doctors were so busy with my arm that it didn’t come to their attention till 3 day later that my hand was broken. Then followed 6 months of therapy several operations on my hand and arm and after nine months I’d had enough the pain killers wern.t working I was bored out of my skull. So I went back to work armed with a fist full of pain killers and another full of ant-depressants, my work station supplied by the Australian Rehabilitation Service, as a structural drats man. Now as you can imagine the combination of pain medication (supplemented with over the counter pain killers) and ant-depressants had something of a soporific effect and to counter this I consumed 6 or 7 coffees with 6 shots each. After a while I was taken for my review and told my work was suffering, I decided to stop the medication( 1 the pain killers seemed to have little effect 2 I was depressed because I was in pain and my life was really shit(these being facts and not imagined, depression was the correct reaction to the situation)( at a latter review I was told I was a lot more productive but a lot less funny)can’t win em all. Kite flying went out the window and if I saw kites in the sky it would bring me to tears, it was not till 2009 that I got over this and then another 3 years till I could fly for more than An hour, now I’m doing well if I keep at it for 3 hours. Now a days I’ve learnt to keep the pain at bay by mental effort, and adrenaline works well, the price for the metal effort is I can no longer read books and find it very had to concentrate for long (which is why this is in chapters) So said I leave you with the wish your kites fly well and the sun stays behind you.

    What footwear do you guys find the best and most comfortable for landboarding in? I know @SoutherlyBuster wears a type of hiking boot and @plummet wears crocs. I've tried both, but still not convinced. What about the rest of you?

    Home kites and boards

    A fellow in Italy decided to make his own foil kite for foil boarding: So share your home board boards and kites here.
  24. Yep, I'm selling my beloved speed 3 $920 (free postage in Australia) **SOLD** Flysurfer Speed 3 12m, standard edition. Closed Cell depower foil kite suitable for use on both land and water. This is a great kite and is still considered one of the best kites for huge floaty jumps. Kite is used but still in good condition. Use 90% on land in a buggy. Comes with original repair kit. Lines were replaced 12 months ago and are still like new. The chicken loop has also been upgraded to the newer Infinity 2 chicken loop from flysurfer. Has had one small repair near left wingtip (see pics). The kite was NOT torn, but had a small wear mark, where the bar was rolled inside kite, so was repaired before the cloth tore.
