Welcome to the forum both Chris and Steve.
Years go by without a single member from my neck of the woods and then suddenly two guys come along at the same time. xD
If you guys find yourselves heading for either Purley or Camber at some stage, then post up, If I'm not working I'll try and meet you there.
Hey Chris, that's a sweet ride man.
We'll have to meet up after lockdown and get you performing some burnouts. Cambersands is best. The clean wind down there will supercharge your progress.
Inland is fine but it will frustrate no end, especially in the early days. You have a big advantage having already flown power kites and imo that's more than half the battle.
You'll be laying down rooster tails in no time. Until then just jump in the bug and go. You'll soon figure it out.
