  1. I'd love a Top of the Line North Shore Radical to add to my growing collection of TOTL kites. A long shot I'm sure, but I just thought I'd put it out there in case anyone has one which they'd be willing to part with... Cheers all!
  2. Happy new year all! Just spotted this buggy on Facebook if anyone is in the market - location is VIC and price has been reduced to $250: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1042082622933234/
  3. Thanks so much for the invite @igeighty! Have got some friends visiting this weekend, but would definitely love to join another time!
  4. So glad to hear it @andy666! I love that kites can be so relaxing, but also so exciting. I look forward to getting good enough with the buggy to film something at the other end of the scale! With the stars of the show. The Hawaiian might just be my favourite kite...
  5. Even before I found ExtremeKites and buggying, flying kites had brought me so much relaxation and joy during these wild times - and I'm incredibly lucky to live in such a beautiful spot for it. So to share the love, I present to you: 3 minutes of 'guided Kite-ful Meditation'. Make sure you have the sound on! A_Tale_of_Two_Kites_final.mp4
  6. Cheers @RedSky! I've already invested in a kite upgrade (a NS2 3.2m thanks to @jhn.holgate) and am hoping to get out for a session this arvo. Updates to follow
  7. Cheers @jhn.holgate, sometimes simple is best eh?! Can’t wait to try it out with the NS2, auspost tracking tells me it could be here tomorrow! 🤞
  8. Hi @Muzhen - I'm looking out for some larger size Nasa Stars, so have just replied on that forum regarding the 4m and 5.5m kites. If they are still available and ok to be sent to Aus, we could even share the postage (if you are keen on the 2.5 😀). Just a thought!
  9. Glad you noticed! I couldn't resist when I saw the red and blue... Cheers @Tiger37 - looking forward to testing it out!
  10. My wife has been asking me about the strange bruises on my hips - it took me a while to work out what they are from too... A possible solution?
  11. Awesome, something for me to work towards perhaps!
  12. You're a champion @jhn.holgate! Gusty inland winds are EXACTLY what I'm contending with. I'm definitely keen to try flying with a bar too... Ok, I'll send you a message!
  13. Hi everyone - am enjoying learning the very basics of buggying with my vintage 3m Quadrifoil, but am starting to realise that it may have some limitations... From what I've read and seen here (especially from @jhn.holgate) I'm thinking that a 4m Nasa Star (with a Z bridle so I can still just use my handles) might be the way to go. Just thought I'd check if anyone out there has one they're not using before I pull the trigger on a new one? Open to any other suggestions people might have too! Cheers!
  14. A lawn mower! Genius @jhn.holgate! I had previously dismissed it as too big a job, but you're right that if I just focus on a track rather than the whole paddock then it's absolutely do-able. Stay tuned... and thanks again for your support!
  15. Thanks so much @RedSky, that really means a lot to me! Yeah it's a beautiful spot here, lovely and green at the moment but I'm secretly looking forward to when things dry out a bit and the grass cover is reduced for a better buggy surface 😆 And duly noted, I shall endeavor to ensure that all future OBEs are captured for all to enjoy 🤣
  16. Cheers for thinking of me @Mez! We’re meant to be having some friends visiting that weekend, but things could change too so would also have to play it by ear. Definitely keen to join sometime soon though!
  17. Had another session on the farm where we’re living today, and my first minor OBE 😂 The grass is really long here, to the point where I *think* it may not be the best spot, especially with a few rocks etc lurking. Might have to check out some more ovals and the like until it’s time to hit the beach / all this lush greenery dies back! Cheers again all for your encouragement 🎉 IMG_0743.mov
  18. Thanks so much @jhn.holgate - couldn't have done it without you! really appreciate the encouragement, will let you know how things progress 👍
  19. Too kind @RedSky! I owe my ability to turn to @jhn.holgate and his excellent ‘how to’ video! Seems like such a great community here, I’m so happy to be a part of it. And yes, a lawnmower wouldn’t have hurt! Things are particularly lush here at the moment - better than the opposite for everyone except buggy riders I suspect...
  20. @RedSky - filmed my first attempt as per your suggestion... looking forward to having something more impressive to compare it to one day 😂
  21. An exciting day! At Sutcliffe Reserve in Corio, with my vintage 3m Quadrifoil. Probably needed a bit more wind 😂 There were a couple of faster bursts but they weren’t captured of course... Needless to say, it was a thrill and I can’t wait for the next session! IMG_0648.mov
  22. Super cool! Now I've just gone back and watched Super Tracks 😱. Am yet to get a buggy, but you've really inspired me!
  23. That is awesome. Just watched with headphones cranked all the way up - excellent musical selection too!
