A Symphony 2.2.4 WILL pull a buggy. Weldingod said we got as fast as 26MPH. He let me try his yellow buggy..

That is great!! It kills me that I was not able to be there with you guys..........

A little helmet cam footage from today when I was in observer mode.

HotAir was there, another of our friends from work showed up as we were starting down the beach. Once I get the other videos edited, I'll try to get it posted. It's pretty jumpy and I guess I hold me head at a strange angle a lot..

That wind was stout huh?

Little kites rule!!! :evil:

Yes they do!!

I flew the Crossfire 2M for a bit but decided on the Symphony since I was far more comfortable with it.

Man I'm sore...It was a great downwinder day ! I tried a few times to work upwind but it was too much work for next to no speed. So my lovely wife took on shuttle driver yet again...Dang,I'm a lucky dude!
Wind was NE @15-25 with gusts to 35,not a lot of hardpack showing @ Low tide, but enough.
So , I convinced Riff to do a downwinder. He flies 4 line good enough to do a downwinder. I told him that the lil symphony would do the job,and was I right! For his first time in the seat , he did an awesome job. Now ,to get some performance in his hands.... :alien::lol::ninja:
I apparently set the gopro to the multi photo mode when I turned on the cam for Riffs first run ,all I got was 5 pics of me turning on the camera.:mad: Sorry Riff..:(
3shot,that had better have been one doozy of a wedding,cause you missed a great kiting day. Heck ,I would have missed my own wedding, if it had blown like that .:lol::lol:

 Sorry Riff.. 

No problem whatsoever. We just keep flying. Pictures and videos are just bonuses. :-)
