  1. @skier Just sent you a message re the Viron.
  2. Yes, hard to believe 10 years have passed. Andy was pretty quick to come say G'day and welcome any new comers to the oval. Definitely earned the name AndyFly. He loved to jump that buggy of his. Braver than me on those inland winds.
  3. Bulk lot Revs & Freileins. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/174867436902
  4. Current bid $49 with 1 day to go. Bargain there for someone in Sydney.
  5. Indian Fighter Kites https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/449794922981902
  6. Random FB finds. HQ Apex II in 7.5 $500 (Sydney) https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3651678758279990/ Kheo Kickr mountain board $200 (Bendigo) https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/150206933535424/
  7. I've had a Rev for a few years. I reckon a coast trip would be the way to go. That constant sea breeze is going to make it much easier to learn. If you can get an 8-12 knot seabreeze that would be ideal. I don't use my Rev inland, for static flying I prefer a small quad line foil kite for the gusty conditions - I've got a 1.2m ozone. For Canberra you might be OK in afternoon easterly - good time of year for those. I'd take a second person to help with relaunch if persisting in Canberra. If you break a spar Kitepower in Sydney had spares last time I needed one. Hard nose down landings when learning can crack them. As some of the others have said soft hands when flying are the way to go. You'll be flying it pretty much with just smokers fingers.
  8. @Tiger37 the top photo is the kite set up. Quad lines just attach to to bridle, you can kind of make out the pigtails on that same pic.
  9. In a back seat witnessing one man's mission to bring a collective history of kiting together, I thought the community better put the question up whether @.Joel there is anything we can help with. While most of us aren't coders there might be some in the community who are, so feel free to put up a call for assistance. If you've got it all under control, no worries. When the times right stick a "say thanks" button up the top of the website linked to your paypal account, or a "high-5" button with hit counter. Be good to show some appreciation.
  10. Came across this article on the web. A few years old, but worthy of a share. https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/72796965/the-kite-king-of-canterbury-still-top-of-his-game-at-69
