    Good going on the kite bike Gannet??
    A big thankyou to Gozzy, for the photos & the loan of the kite, lots still to learn a few bruises for the experience. No harm done, so it was a good laugh had by all after the down loop! 
    Having a great time up here in Yeppoon, heading home soon for another year. Went out to Great Keppel Island for a day trip, had a nice day there. Go back had a quick look around Mulambin & Kinka Beach, Cathy stayed at the caravan park there about 34 years ago though!

    Jeremy ( @westfire ) teaching Cathy to kite with a 7m FS Pulse and her first go in the buggy at Yeppoon yesterday.
    It was eventful first session in which Cathy managed her first powered downturn (by accident  ) and shot up the beach at a fair speed, after firing the safety release on the kite she ended up in the kite with the buggy.  No injuries to Cathy or the kite and we all had a good laugh. Full marks for giving it a good go on her second day out of kiting.

    we also had a bit of a spooky moment yesterday. There is a new guy from Rockhampton who has just started buggying and came down for a fly yesterday arvo. I thought the 2nd hand buggy he was riding looked farmiliar, so had a closer look and realised that it used to belong to the late, great Andyfly. So after passing through the hands of several owners the buggy had made it back to the very beach where Andy's ashes were scattered 5 years ago.
    @Goz got some photos of the buggy on the beach and I will let him tell the other twists of the story.

    3 to 5 kites, mutant/hydrofoil, wetsuit and change of clothes is always in there. Unless I have to take it out specifically to use the tray for something!

    I was wearing crocs on the second day
    Didn't bring the pink tutu over maybe next year 
    I'm a little concerned as I haven't seen anyone wearing a pink tutu over here yet!  Not even in Coles!  Strange breed them Aussies
    But good fun all the same

    Hello everyone to everyone that knows & those who don't, hello as well???? I'll be heading up on Friday, have borrowed a buggy & bringing a bunch of kites & associated gear, unfortunately not staying at Driftwood this year? Due to a stuff up with work, was between departments & not sure if I was able to go. So there was very little accommodation left, be good to see some familiar faces, bring on the wind & those big wide beaches.

    Very light wind day today. So no kite flying really. I managed to launch the 18m f-arc, but I wouldn't say I got to "fly" it, so not tick for it.

    The last few days on the beach.
    Still havin' a ball.
    Most days I'm managing to get to over 80kmh. This video is the roughest the beach has been since I've been here. 85.6kmh through the foam.
    Fantastic to have Pete @gannet with us today. Welcome to Aus mate.
