  1. That’s why the weather on the east coast has turned to crap, @Pari has a new kite. 😉 It looks good mate. Can’t wait for a full review.
  2. Look open cell depower kites. Probably around the 8m mark to start with. kites like the ozone access are ideal. try to buy a kite that come with the original bar. A lot of the land based kites have different safety systems then water based kites.
  3. the old Peter Lynn F-arcs usually get a fly when I buggy at Easter. for kitesurfing my go to kites are still the peter Lynn venom2’s or flysurfer speed 3’s. All of them great kites, which I can’t justify replacing just yet. Now where is @nigel with his old c-quads 😂
  4. Absolute bargain 9m sonic 2 for only $150!! https://m.facebook.com/groups/567372513400899/permalink/2029727497165386/
  5. The PL nova is their all round kitesurfing kite. the aero is PL’s race kite. But I think the R1 is still faster.
  6. The time and patience it takes to build something like that is incredible. Not knowing if the end product will even work I have build 2 kites now and I don’t think I will ever do another.
  7. Dirt surfer $150 in Brisbane https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/unavailable-product/?refsrc=deprecated
  8. Only the standard wide tyre will fit inside a narrow PL fork. the wide tyres that still fit the standard PL plastic rims were called midi’s I can’t remember the sizes of the top of my head. Maybe @Chook can help.
  9. HQ kites are gone. The Montana’s were great kites.

    Nice. 👌 Inflato kites have finally caught up to what foil kites were doing 10+yrs ago. 😆

    I have 1 (maybe 2) spare if you need. Give me a call and can sort out getting it to you.
  12. 13m venom 2 going cheap https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/buderim/other-sports-fitness/kite-surf-kite/1275415923?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=ios_VIP&utm_medium=social&utm_source=com.apple.uikit.activity.copytopasteboard
  13. I don’t ride waves, only a bit of choppy water when the wind picks up and I use my 138 board for that. The centre fin is only 8cm. Because the board rides with the back foot pushing the board down more the the front, the centre fin is only as low as the back foot fin. (Maybe even less)
  14. I picked up a flydoor 4 XL (170) at Easter and I have only tried it once. The flydoor planes really easily, as expected from such a large board. it also goes up wind really well. I does however want to ride flat and grips with the fins rather then being able to dig the edge in. This is fine in light winds, but maybe not good if the wind suddenly picks up? For my weight the 170 is probably too big and a 155-160 would be a more suitable size.
  15. I wonder how much the trend toward “simple” graphics it based on visual design? or is it structural requirements of where seams can be placed? or is it just a cost cutting measure? 🤔
  16. Peter Lynn buggy in Sydney. $250 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/551770105723496/
  17. New wind app developed right here in Australia, call OZ Wind Alerts free to download for iOS and android. https://apps.apple.com/au/app/oz-wind-alerts/id1527064911 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ozwindalerts&hl=en_AU&gl=US
  18. 6m ozone access going cheap. Only $100 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/193863273128
  19. Does he still have that carbon buggy?
  20. Interesting for others to see you, but probably won’t light up anything else. Plus motorcycle helmets are heavier then mountain bike helmets. have a look for mountain bike specific lights and check what people are using in that sport.
  21. Yes, how was it? pics? Videos?
  22. @Paul Isabelle, no real updates. I flew the kite once in the buggy in about 20knots. It flew, but had a tendency to stall once the speed built. I fiddled with the front and rear strap a bit on the beach, which improved it a bit, but never fixed it. It would get up to a reasonable speed in the buggy and then simply stop accelerating.
  23. @.Joel are you thinking about setting up a permanent kiting HQ? It would make last minute weekend trips a lot easier So has anyone in Vic been out for a kite lately?
  24. Cheers mate, but I already have one 😄
