that for me is the most cool part, to ride it as a passenger with a kite.
but someone who is struggling to learn how to buggy, and just take someone
on a great and memorable ride is also great to give.
i've had people form 5 years till in their 70's who had a great time.


and also this:
PB on PTW site

that's +45MpH...:D

Very cool videos! I keep seeing Mad Max Glory Road in my mind when seeing that sidecar action. Maybe I've just been thinking about that movie lately, but I can't seem to shake the visuals of us desert rats covered in playa dust racing around. It just seems a kite buggy or two could somehow have been worked into that movie and that awesome sidecar would have worked!

About the dual kites in the air - bold move Cotton (random Dodgeball reference). Looks like a ton of fun! The two pilots better be on the same page though or I could see some nasty kite collisions at speed with brutal rat nest line and bridle tangles. Doh!




Born-Kites:
RaceStar+ (3.0m, 5.0m, 7.0m, 14.0m)
RaceStar (9.0m, 11.0m)
NasaStar-4 (2.5m, 4.0m, 5.5m, 7.0m)
NasaStar-3 (custom 3.2m)

Buggy:
Peter Lynn BigFoot+ nose & tail; midsection VTT rail & seat kit; home-brewed AQR

Mad Max is one of my all-time favorite. to be in it would be awesome!!

and yes, to be as 1 is important @ higher speeds.
but the fun with two is more important than speed.
