  1. After a fabulous time over in SA, we've both got the feel again to be back in the buggy and blofly. With the COVID situation settling here in Victoria, what about re-booting a speed week? Thoughts?
  2. Kingston 2016 is on the horizon, we need as much time as possible in the new buggies to get familiar before we head off in hunt of some new records. For @nigel this was his first time on a beach with his new GT-Rapide ++, for @bakersdozen this was the first time he was out in his own buggy! So a couple of firsts for everyone to start, and one for me to finish We met at Nigel's place a bit after 9am, my GT on the rear rack, Nigel's GT in the back along with Mark's (bakersdozen) gear and off to Sandy Point. Upon arrival the wind seemed a bit light, however once you went over the hill you felt a good 15 knots comfortably with it pushing a little higher at different stretches of the beach. I choose to take out a Peter Lynn Phantom2 12M as I had flown the 6M and 9M, however yet to have tried the 12M. Nigel choose some smaller foils earlier on then settled on his 10M Peter Lynn Scorpion and Mark on a 7M Ozone Frenzy for the day. Billy Cart Style... Nigel on his GT-Rapide ++ Moon walking... Mark trying out a race buggy... Nigel on a 10M Peter Lynn Scorpion + GT-Race Rapide ++ Camera on? My GT-Rapide ++ with Extreme Kites seat. Nigel scudding. The day's kite choices... After an awsome day's kiting I decided to "billycart" the buggy back to the cars, I usually do this to get to the beach on a weekday when it's empty and there's nobody around. However in the past coming back to the cars has always been on midis etc, this time I had the 17" rims on the GT. I sat on the back rest, put my feet in the seat and grabbed on to the tow strap and went. Usually I drag a foot on the ground or two to slow down, however the buggy picked up a bit more speed so I decided to just ride it out. As I came around the corner I had complete under-steer, my eyes instead of paying attention ahead I slipped up and fixated on the object I was trying to avoid, a dead tree trunk. In doing so I didn't look ahead and after avoiding the tree trunk ended up as I was turning hard right going over a large grass mound with the right rear wheel. As my whole body was already fighting the lean to the left that extra lift of the rear wheel at speed just threw me clean off the buggy and smashing me flat in to the ground. First thing I did was make sure I could move my legs, then my arms, then I realised I was winded as I was struggling hard to breath. Nigel had run over and was telling me to stay down, Mark comes around the corner and goes "I could head that from back there." Eventually with enough air back in the lungs I bleeted out "Mark you're an Ambo, check me out" then lay back flat on the grass. He came up, then started checking me out, got to my ribs and I started cursing in pain. We're not sure if they're bruised or worse, but sure as hell my chest absolutely aches. That's the first time in 10+ years i've been thrown off the buggy doing that, everyone had their own "first" for the day Parting advice, if you're going to injure yourself do it with enough time to heal before Kingston
  3. I'm still in Melbourne, so another weekend at Sandy Point It looks like our new buggies might turn up soon, so I think I'm going to hang around for a while longer
  4. I havn't updated my blog for a while, every time I sit down at the computer I just cant get into it, so now its time to pull my finger out and catch up on it all. The Extreme Kites crew at the annual pilgrimage to Sandy Point located 2 hours drive South East from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. 4 days of fun (and hopefully a little craziness) over the Melbourne Cup long weekend. We didn't get any record breaking winds this time, but we still had a great time. Just nice easy flying on the main beach, beautiful weather and great company. The last day was a blustery one on the Inlet. We had no wind to start with and then it came in strong, it must have been 20-25 knots and crazy gusty. Where we kite at the Inlet is only a small area and on, its very boggy in the middle and this occasion there were some bad stingray holes, it was also a public holiday and there were people everywhere and lots of kitesurfers setting up on the beach. Consequently there was barely enough room to skid off speed. Doug put up his small 2m broozer so I decided to play it safe and started to pump up my small 4m air rush LEI, when i saw him put down the broozer from lack of power i stopped setting up my small kite and pumped up my 7m Ikon C kite, big mistake. I was then quite overpowered and without the room to run off the speed it was getting a bit dangerous XtremeKites HQ Main Beach Sandy Point
