Soliver I'm not sure how to ask this but how is 26.6 mph in a buggy fast. Ive done 160 MPH on a motorcycle, now that was fast, for me anyway.

Hi Ralph, at the risk of sounding rude... settle into a 35 pound buggy, on grass, in gusty inland wind conditions that you're trying to harness, with a longest possible run of 150 yards headed towards a copse of trees - oh wait: without brakes - and then still be able to slow, redirect, turn, not hit the trees with kite or buggy, and repeat.

In this sport (IMHO), speed is as subject to the physical environment as it is the wind conditions.

Those of us that are subjected to the issues of inland buggying would trade any day for smooth shore breezes on nice long beaches. (On the other hand, I think that having to learn and cope with inland conditions makes us better pilots.) There's a reason that events like WBB, JIBE, IBX, etc are so popular (and people are so willing to drive many hours to get there): some of it is the ability to buggy without the inland restrictions and obstacles, but mostly it's the people that make this sport great.

Again, not trying to be rude, just trying to point out that there's very little in the motorized world that compares to flying in a buggy.




Go ahead... tell me to "go fly a kite!" Please!

Ever heard or sarcasm?

My PB is not much to speak of,... It is mostly a joke, but yeah, when your seat meat is roughly 4" off the ground, 26.6 mph feels like crazy fast especially in scenarios like hiaguy mentioned above. Many get up to 30-39 mph without much trouble, others get to 40 mph and that is an achievement. Over 60 mph is a feat, and then there is the speed record which is over 80 mph.... Consider the fact that a good kite doubles the wind speed which means that to reach the 50 to 60 mph you have to be pretty brazenly flying in 25 to 30 mph winds and either harnessed or hot-wired. If I remember correctly when Brian Holgate hit 80+ mph he was in 42+ mph winds... that's a bravery that I do not possess.

Semi on-topic, depending on your kite and buggy, with a good side-on breeze in the 15-20 mph range on Jekyll, you can get over 40mph and it feels like no big deal because it is so smooth and flat. The inlanders just have to fight the urge to turn and just cruise for a few miles in one direction. :)
