  1. 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.
  2. 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

  4. The Hyundai Kite Buggy - for the low wind days. https://www.hyundai.news/eu/model-news/hyundai-kite-the-two-in-one-electric-buggy-concept-in-cooperation-with-the-ied/
  5. Brilliant work. XK will soon be the definitive information source for the international kite community. Joel you deserve every success for taking on a such a project.
  6. Ozone Manta 2. 8m complete with bar and lines in good nic. Price $450 (firm) but will throw in postage.
  7. If you've got Disney + you can check out a cheesy mountain boarding flick. https://whatsondisneyplus.com/movie/johnny-kapahala-back-on-board/ 68% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
  8. If I had time to prototype I being making a paddle with spring loaded section, like a suspension bike seat post. Compresses when pushed down at the front of the board and then gives you a spring assisted push as you roll past the center of effort.
  9. Plenty of life left in that shirt. Here's something you can use to patch those holes and the rip. https://www.fixmykite.com.au/ripstop-sail-tape-2-black
  10. I've used the NS4 on shortlines, with landboard, inland lakeside gusty winds. My take on it was it's something you do for novelty factor, or just because you can. It's very quick to grab and go, works fine, but if you've got the time then a more typical kite surf/buggy/landboard session will be more satisfying.

  12. For those in Sydney. Zero G kite - find it on FB marketplace. I've got the same one. Good fun in just 2 knots.
