Mood: I need some more buggying!

[*] posted on 2-10-2018 at 07:34 PM
An AWESOME day of firsts


Low wind day 6-8 mph winds.

- First time with the new MG Supra buggy. This thing is awesome. There is absolutely no comparison to the flexi.
- First time with a kite bigger than 6m. Always was afraid of big kites, 8m Cent ii went up today. Thank you to big kid for that kite. I think I am in love with big kites and low wind (feels weird saying that while I have been chasing high wind days for the best part of a year). Now I know that I can probably be out there even on a 4mph day with the 10m Cent ii. Yipee.
- First time hooked in. Thanks to big kid again for the AQR because otherwise I dont think I would have done this. The difference between strong arming and being hooked to a harness is unbelievable. Controling the kite becomes so much easier.

What a buggy day.

At least you and Brandon are getting out. So much rain here I would need Mud tires and a 6 inch lift to even think about getting out

She's on purdy buggy, sweet! Glad for all of your firsts! BigKid set me up to with an AQR a while back: total confidence booster! As you will no doubt come to appreciate, most everyone (me too) are initially scared of big kites and somehow more comfortable with little kites. Once you get buggying hooked in you will likely come to find that it is the small kites that will spank you, not the big gentle giants. Little kites on high wind days scream around the sky like angry wasps on a string, while big kites move like big, gentle, cuddly barges around the sky on low wind days. Compared to small kites in high winds, you can grab a sandwich waiting for something dangerous to happen with a big kite. With a small kite you better not blink. ;)



Kites:
Born-Kite RaceStar (5.0m, 7.0m, 9.0m, 11.0m)
Born-Kite LongStar-3 (3.5m)
Born-Kite NasaStar-3 (1.5m, 3.2m)
Born-Kite NasaStar-4 (2.5m)

Buggy:
Hybrid - nose & tail PL BF+ with wide rear axle; midsection VTT rail & seat kit; two sets of Sysmic rims (BigFoots and 6-ply trailer tires); BigKid's AQR
