I've ridden a lot this year, at the Fairgrounds - a big grass field, a parking lot by our lake and of course at JIBE. After JIBE I switch to water sports - this year mostly windsurfing. Will do that till fall when I switch back to buggy.

I went to JIBE, made a few expeditions to the fishing pier in the North of the island and back to Kite Beach. I didn't ever go all the way to the South water tower this year though. Beach conditions weren't super conducive to heading South.

Here's a couple. Since the park was turned over to the city, they've started having music events, 40,000 people and their vehicles have ruined it pretty good.

The new midis will help.

I have been riding the buggy a lot since I moved from Oklahoma to N. Myrtle beach about a year and a half ago. Almost any time the wind is good and the tide is low or close to low. Much nicer on sand with clean wind compared to the wheat field.

I plan to start trying to figure out how to successfully ride my mountain board now too.

Off the topic - what is the cheapest way to determine how fast one is going in a buggy. My phone does not have GPS. The other day I was flying my 4m ozone dp prototype I bought off this forum. I think it is like an access. I was going really smooth with the kite parked and the bar halfway and then I lowered the kite a little and sheeted all the way in and felt a real boost in speed. I would be curious how fast I was going.

Out looking for new spots to fly out in the wind tunnel known as Abbotsford. No luck only found farm land. Heading back out to mud bay today and working on a deal for another low wind sail to ensure never getting skunked.

Yes I love wind powered sports. I kite buggy and land sail (pole dance) ;)
I drive 2,600kms to Kingston South East, over in South Australia in January and covered 1,132kms kiting in the 12 days I was there.
I fly over to Yeppoon in Queensland every Easter for a just over a month and I did 5,734kms in my kite buggy along the beach this trip.
I have covered over 10,000kms "wind powered" each year for the last 4 years. Last year I got to 13,240kms. I'm up to a logged (Suunto GPS watch and Garmin 10) 9,321kms so far this year.
