  1. I haven't been on this forum for ages. That revo build is fracken Oh for Awesome! PS use around 70 durometer for the elastomers, and yes I used a universal CV boot as a seal.
  2. Book it in for next year lads. You won't regret it.
  3. Any dates for moose 

  4. Switching from FB to depower involves quite a bit of change of technique. Most fb flyers will choke an lei by holding the bar too far in. The term depower is really incorrect. Its more a power up kite. Think of the bar out being no brakes on a fb kite. Pulling the bar in adds more brake/power. You need to pull the bar in until you find the sweet spot. That sweet spot is usually between half and 3/4 in.
  5. Sorry boys i havent checked this forum for a while. Some good advice here. Both Redsky and Rob know their stuff and do more lei buggying than me! You won't get a lei to do 13-27 in one size without being underdone or overdone. 8m would be closest i guess, but it depends on your buggy and set up. I'm hardwired on a bigfoot bug and generally hold more power than most. Here's my wind ranges below. 12m chrono. crab fart -16 knots 10m edge 12-20 knots 8m enduro 15 -25 knots 6m reo 20-35 knots 4m uno 25- stupid. PS i can take these kites both higher and lower than this. Thats the general wind range I use the kites in.
  6. You know you too old when you dont know how old you are, This also works for when you are too young.
  7. Good work Southerly. I'm still rolling with no refined sugar. I'm also focusing on more veggies and less carbs in my main mean, That has trimmed a couple more kg. I'm now 75 kg at age 47, which is pretty darn good considering my racing weight in my mid 20's was 73kg. Side note there is now less kiting and more mountain biking. Mountain biking adds to aerobic fitness way more than kiting. So my endurance and general fitness is as good as it was in my 20's also. Oh yeah i'm feeling good.

  9. Yep. Do it. Full moon kiting is surreal. I've done it with and without lights and in sand dunes also. You dont need lights on the kite. You can see it well enough on a full moon.
  10. What local kite shop? The nearest one to me is 300km away.
  11. Have you ever ridden a buggy? I'm pretty sure you dont have one.
