  1. Hi @hd1pwelcome to Extreme Kites! Where about are you from and what kind of buggy do you have?
  2. Awesome! I think go for something like a second hand Ozone Access. Very forgiving kite and a great intro into learning depower - they can be had for quite cheap on the second hand market. If you were to be able to put your hands on an Access, I wouldn't hesitate to say a 12-14 would work for you, however for other more agressive kites - you would still potentially get a fright when the gusts come up. Of course, this is only at this stage of your development - as you progress, you will learn how to manage gusts with bigger more aggressive kites no problems. And you will want to get further into that territory when you start jumping etc. Let us know what options come up and we can chime in further.
  3. Thanks for sharing your video @Eluder. What music track was that?
  4. Welcome to Extreme Kites @SeriousB ! Some great info above from @jeffnyc . It would be great to understand what experience you already have in terms of which kites you have flown etc. We don't wanna throw you in the deep end too early, as there maybe an interim kite we could recommend to get you rolling while you learn the ins and outs of getting momentum on the board while learning the wind and how to fly in tandem with that.
  5. Welcome @Artfulthanks for sharing your story and it's great to have you on board. Glad to hear @RedSkyhad some inspiration on you. Hopefully some UK folk might chime in and share some tips for you and your location 😀
  6. Hi Mez, there were few tents propped up at the Caravan park . I didn't go and have a good look, but doesn't appear to be any movement so far.
  7. With a combination of pretty inconsistent weather and various lockdowns over the past year or more, it had been a while since I had the opportunity to get out and have a kite. I had already taken Friday off work and headed down to Sandy Point given the promising forecast and my window of opportunity. It was so great to blow out the cobwebs and get back to one of my most favourite places to be.
  8. Had a great solo run today at Sandy Point. Consistent on-shore all day 15-20 knots at the start and then backed off towards the end of the session. Cloudy day, but the sun made several appearances which made it even more enjoyable. Should have enough footage to throw a cheeky edit together over the weekend.
  9. So, who's thinking about heading down to Sandy Point this long weekend? Given the current forecast, i'm heading down on Friday for low tide and stay for the day. Then I will consider going back on Monday if the forecast holds. Sat and Sun doesn't look promising with offshore winds currently predicted.
  10. Nice presents there mate. We will await your reviews 😁
  11. Welcome back @IainB.. We haven't had a review of the new model yet, once you get yours please feel free to post one and we can feature the review.
