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

    Chasing Axle

    I have 1 (maybe 2) spare if you need. Give me a call and can sort out getting it to you.
  3. 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
  4. 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)
  5. 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.
  6. 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? 🤔

  10. Does he still have that carbon buggy?
  11. 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.
  12. Yes, how was it? pics? Videos?
  13. @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.
  14. @.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?
  15. Cheers mate, but I already have one 😄

    After a long break it’s like the excitement of it floods in and you wonder why it took so long to make the effort to get back to it. Hopefully you can get out more often. Kite flying is good for the soul.
  17. It’s a bumble bee 🐝 looks like you are having a blast. I was never able to get the hang of a land board, so I’m a bit jealous of anyone that is able to. Keep it up 👍
  18. It’s bargain too. Only $100 😲
  19. @Pari when are you looking at going?

    Flexifoil Buggy

    I think that may have been flexifoil’s attempt at a race buggy. The “bent” axle was longer and also had side rail extensions. @.Joel, @sluggo, any ideas?

    Sysmic S3

    @BobbyO we would all love to see some pictures and get a review of the buggy once it arrives. Congrats mate.
  22. It looks very nice. I have also seen the front fork braced too.
