  1. Hi All, Thought it was about time I uploaded some content. This was shot on a weekend of snowkiting back in September 2017 . . . yes I am a bit slow when it comes to editing ? Light conditions but great snow. It was my son's first time on a snowboard / snowkiting and he is now hooked!
  2. Love it! Love it! Love it! Soooo many new angles. And it looked like you were moving pretty fast. My son has a Fusion and I know how much can be involved with editing. Well done. You've set the bar very high. Sorry to hear about our camera.

    Bye Dad.

    Sorry to hear this news. A sad loss for everyone.
  4. You don't by chance have front forks to fit floating around do you? I am running middi's on an S2 and believe I would need the larger front fork kit to accommodate a big foot wheel on the front (correct me if I am wrong).

    Mmm. Impressive photography. Could be a variation of crop circles. I imagine a beach would make a nice landing surface for an alien spacecraft!
  6. Hey Mary. Nice to hear from you. Last buggy was about 3 weeks ago at Balnarring beach which was fun. Have been juggling between kitesurfing, foilboarding, mtb riding, sailboarding, motorbike riding and paragliding. Too little time for too many (mainly wind based) intetests. Would be out on the buggy this weekend but the wind just isn't cooperating. Looking forwards to catching up soon.
  7. I'm leaning towards Venus Bay given the direction and the fact that I've got to be back early. May or may not see you down there ☺
  8. I feel for you Mez. Just to rub it in I managed to get out Friday evening for some kite foilboarding in around 20 knots, went sailboarding on Saturday in 20-30 knots, and then kitesurfing again on Sunday in a good 25 knot Southerly. I chalked this up as a good weekend with some mountain bike riding thrown in for good measure! Love this time of year :-)
  9. Superload was at cnr of Dingley bypass and Warragul at 6am this morning (so out of the way).
  10. Candide adds another to his folio! Some nice dune buggying locations within :-)

    Try again :-)
  12. It's not the wind I'm concerned about on Saturday, more the rain forecast which is pretty heavy to say the least (up to 15mm). Me thinks Sunday might be a better option.
  13. Love the exclamations! Looks like a great spot and some awesome riding :-)
  14. Hi All. Thought you might find this interesting:
  15. Video looks great Mark. Goid to see the drone makes fir some great shots. Yes Chook I use a Wichard attached to the harness and I generally add a metal ring where the chicken loop would normally be. Has always worked well for me though I very rarely actually use the safety.
  16. And another. . . As usual better than the last. .
  17. Got a low-wind run at Venus bay yesterday and it was GREAT! The wind was dead on which opened up the whole of the bay (all 20 plus km of it), and although the tides weren't really low, there was still plenty of beach to be had. Interestingly I had more dog attention than usual - I think because the kite is black and looks more like a huge bird of prey. Fortunately I was going pretty slow when I nudged the Collie. As for the Jack Russell - he just took one look at the kite and ran . . . and ran . . .and ran. The Spleene was every bit the low-wind monster all the reviews indicate.
  18. Looks like an awesome spot. Buggies in dunes are SOOO MUCCHHHH FUNNNN!! :-)
  19. Pretty sure Nigel got in the low 80's and ChrisItaly wasn't far behind. Rob was out for a while on a 3 metre LEI and decided it was a bit hairy. I spent most of the day repairing lines that kept breaking on a 3.8 metre kite that I was struggling to stay in the buggy under. It was very windy (30 knots plus) most of the day and gusty too:-). Unfortunately cross-on (way more cross than on but enough wind to tac your way back up the beach). fun for all! I'll let the guys post their actual speeds.
  20. Hi Trevor. You will be missed down at Sandy Point this year. Hope life is less challenging for you next year. Take care.
  21. May work better for all of us as the forecast is great for Saturday right around lunch time. BTW we are having the barbecue where and roughly what time Friday evening?
  22. Hey Trevor, Sorry to hear your news. If you're not in the UK perhaps a buggy might be the best distraction. I should be able to bring biscuits, dips and some cheese. I've scrolled through but attention to detail clearly isn't my forte . . . the barbecue is on Sunday?
  23. Should be around another hour or so
