Tnx

Windspeed was okay, to bad the direction wasn't optimal.

And that's it with this hobby, all the stars and planets
are rarely in the right position to go reeaaally fast.. :D

But had great fun riding and making this movie

Yeah - the stars aligning (or at least the wind) is always an issue along with how wet the field is or how high the lake is. My main buggy riding field requires a wind angle of 300 degrees or higher, or it is pretty worthless. My lake spot needs very close to 90 degrees. Fortunately, those are the two most common direction during the winter months when I ride buggy. So I can get good riding conditions maybe 15-20 times a season if I'm lucky. I would drive six hours to Jekyll on the coast more often but having looked at the forecast many times I find the tide levels and prefered wind directions (for a couple days in a row which I kind of what I need to justify the drive) are not all that easy to find in the cold weather months, When it is warm enough for a seabreeze situation gets better. So I always make time for JIBE!
