I am slightly confused about this project ?

You already pilot ab better buggy than I do ? That new Fexi seems just the job?

I see this as a great way of being more mobile on beaches but don't see how it can do what the Flexi' does for you?

Was there room to Kite during the Tall Ship Festival? Are we welcome?

By the time we left on Friday no room. They told us their expectation: 50 000 to 100 000 visitors this weekend.
He is not giving up the flexi. It is just another way of doing what DS does best: showing off.

After watching "wheels" at the Nitro Circus show in Vegas last night, I'm not sure the wheelchair is a hindrance. Much respect to the guys abilities and attitude. Same for you dirtslide.

I think a showman gets paid cash, or do you think that is why God gave you the horseshoe?

Hey Dirstslide, great to see other wheelchair users kiting, i am a para and recently started buggy and am having a great time. we adapted a Peter lynn buggy and it works great. originally we used a lever for steering but then went to a tiller type set up and created a foot rest to get my feet off the steering pegs. works great now and had great fun. I find the approach of adapting a wheelchair for kiting an odd one. Wheelchairs are well suited for day to day life but are generally very very poor for sport and recreation. even with the freewheel (which i am very familiar with) a wheelchair is really a pretty poor substitute for a buggy. The wheel size, COG, steering, robustness etc. all mean it is surely much more effective and much much safer to use something built for purpose. Why try and kite from the chair?
