First time at JIBE

So I've been planing on making JIBE my first buggy event. Unfortunately my friend who was going to let me use his kites, buggy and help me get started has now backed out of going. I'm a complete noob to buggy's but fly dual line and quad line kites regularly. I need to get myself a buggy and kites so I'm hoping there might be a few people selling, let me know! I'll be there Sunday to Wednesday.

I'm sure someone will be willing to let you use something to give things a try. Usually there's at least 1 or 2 demo kites to try out.

I've got a Symphony 2.1.4 which is a great trainer kite for learning quad line and it's just fun to fly. But I think you may already be familiar with quad line flying like you said. I DO have 2 buggies, but my 2nd is dedicated to tandem riding for my kids. ... I'm hoping to get my 2 oldest to fly the symphony again this year, especially since I too knthe time to do the conversion to make it a 4 line kite.

In real life, they call me Spencer

Flying-- HQ Symphony 2.1.4 (its old), 2.5m & 4m Born Kite NS2, 6m Flysurfer Peak 1 (a minty fresh Gift) and 12m Flysurfer Peak 2 (the gnat fart catcher).
Riding-- VTT Stinger XR Hybrid and an XR/VTT Frankenbuggy (Tandem).
Playing-- Silverangel #429 ... oh wait thats the other forum.
JWC-- Founding member and self appointed president.

PB: 30.5 mph

You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, ...and also a boat with no holes in it.

You might also check out the Land sailors that will be at JIBE. Perhaps they will be available for demo rides.
