SKIP WORK FOR NE WINDS???

WELDNGOD - 4-12-2016 at 02:18 PM

Winds are forecast to be NE and very brisk tomorrow. Low tide is @ 7:43 am. And another @ 7:49 pm. I'm thinking about taking a vacation day and BUGGY! Who's down?? C'mon , it will be a great day! Morning and an evening session ,doesn't get any better...

Is that a question?
Why is that even a question?
If I had a day good enough to buggy, even a marginal day, I'd have a kite up. (Unfortunately, VA Beach is about 600 miles away, but you know my thoughts are there.)
Buggy on! :wee:

Sure, what time you getting down there.

WELDNGOD - 4-13-2016 at 08:58 AM

You VAB locals are missing out today . I got a 41.3 mph on a 2.2 . Now I have run out of beach until the tide starts going out. Time for lunch

Good to get some miles in. Would liked to have been there.

Jason how far are you from the beach?

3shot - 4-13-2016 at 05:32 PM

Im about 2 hours from weldngod's spot Sean. When your company has 24-7 service contracts with WalMart, its next to impossible to take off work. I only get two weeks vaca. One is at JIBE, and the other is October killing deer. Lol

Yeah man got mine!! Good one ! and its just the beginning!

That's nice it's semi close. I'm 12 hours to any beach. I think I've only been to the beach 10 times or less my whole life.

Sounds like a blast. Any kite bike time planned?

3shot - 4-14-2016 at 05:57 AM

Yeah. Im sure Donnie is about ready to kick me to the curb. I suck....

Are you able to buggy back up to the trucks with a NE wind Donnie? Just thinking transport logistics with my bigger VTT.

riffclown - 4-14-2016 at 11:38 AM

I could possibly make a Saturday session..

I ain't kicking ya nowhere , more beach for me! LOL

I was doin downwinders N to S,Kelly drove the truck .

Riff, I'm hoping Sat. still has NE or even E winds. Low tide is around 11 am . If it is ,I'm there.

Hey 3shot, you up for a truck pool on Sat??? We might even be able to give the Montana a spin since I tweaked the bridles..l

whoa, I forgot you have a Montana. Have you flown it much? Seems like that would be a nice show stopper if the winds were right at some of the kite festivals you attend

riffclown - 4-14-2016 at 05:01 PM

Only a few times in very light winds.. I don't have a harness so I use a strap.. I fly it carefully since I'm not a depower guy and I've only had it up in the air a few times and never as an engine yet..

The 8M Toxic makes a great showstopper.. I'd still rather fly fixed bridle any day of the week..
