Got my son going yesterday. At 19, it's tough for him to make time for old dad.

he let go as soon as he flipped. It was a low speed day but just got caught with the kite in the wrong position. I know his personality and I knew he wouldn't try to hang on for dear life. Still probably should have had him wear a helmet. Flipping the buggy was his favorite part.

Teenagers... go figure.
(My son flipped the buggy on is first time out too - he decided that the board was safer and never looked back.)

I wear skin tight black long johns made out of that stretchy material under my jeans when it's cold. Wearing those alone to the store might get some looks from the ladies.

I would have loved to buggy in my teens! I was strictly a static flyer then and had no idea there were other options. Take him to an event and in sure he'll be hooked.

I've wanted one of those nasa's for a while now. They look like great intro to buggy kites. My wife has yet to buggy but shows interest. Might have to pick one up for her!
