    Well I finally got around to taking the photo! I improved my top speed at Yeppoon also, now 58.4km/h. I was on my 4 Brooza II again in the home made bug.

    I did this at Conway beach when I met up with Peter and the other Whitsunday guys (Cheers again for a great couple of days, Peter). 57.7k pretty poor really but ave no photo evidence of faster times.

    This was part of my stay over Easter this year (2016) in Yeppoon Queensland.
    I live in Esperance on the SE coast of Western Australia and head over each Easter to buggy on Farnborough Beach.
    Using my Sysmic S2 on Midi XL's, I made my top speed 93.1 kmh (with 8 runs over 90kmh) fairly early on in the day (Nice 19-23knot SE winds) and made my best "non stop distance" at the same time.
    Without stopping I covered 362.9 kilometres as you can see in my log the same day.

    My total distance that I covered in the buggy while in Yeppoon this year was 3,385kms in 24 days.

    I was at Sloping main. That is about 100km from Hobart. Beach had just the width needed to go for it. At that speed with the 2m I was sort of in control. Still having issues with power sliding the 2m's are there is not the same sort of pull that the 4m has. Was a few moments where I was just about in a situation to change the undies but was not to bad. The wind picked up even more once I did that so put the kite down, had a beer and went back to a mates family's shack.

    Wind is starting calm down again so we are thinking about a static fly somewhere... maybe even with the rev's.

    Some good winds between Christmas and New Year here in SEQ. Decided to dust the cobwebs off the buggy and get the bearings turning.

    Amazing day, wind was blowing nicely with @nigel fully powered on a 10M Scorpion and my father on a 2.5M Star3.  The beach had been quite eroded and rough due to cross-shore winds creating large half-meter troughs running from the dunes to half way down the beach so it limited the amount of room to use.  However with a bit above 20 knots blowing @mezzararty assisted me in launching the Flysurfer Sonic-FR 9.0M, which I took for a run and achieved a bit over 80km/h.
    There was a stretch of beach about 2km long that I would consistently average over 80km/h, I found throughout the day the rest of the beach to be noticeably slower.  However this stretch produced consistent top and average speeds.

    Overall for my first fly of the Sonic-FR 9M in considerable winds I was impressed with the result, I've now removed the chicken loop to bring the kite in closer and re-center my mass in the buggy.
