If you happened to hit the site in the last two weeks you may have seen things looking a little worse for wear, something went wrong in Internet land and the new test website had to be published ahead of time. Unfortunately the web admin Pete was rather in disposed attempting to be one of the first in the world to kite surf the Torres Straits and didn’t get a chance to fix things up.
The good news is that the new site is now LIVE and KICKING and we hope to get posting up in the next few days. I’ll be posting up my Torres Story and a review of the 2013 Blade Trigger 9m and also the 12m when I get to fly it, A review of the warrior harness from Mystic and a story on what I’ve learnt endurance kiting on a surfboard.
So welcome back to the NEW look website. If you want to contact us click the contact button at the top of the page to find us.

Cooold in Sydney this weekend. Not much kiteable wind about on the forecast either. A small southerly is hanging about helping to keep things chilly with maybe a little rain On the coast. Swell is still about but dying off fast.
Arrived at the Long Reef carpark this morning in the near pitch dark still wearing pajamas. It was a pleasant surprise getting out the van that the temperature in Sydney has raised a few notches on the dial to a balmy 17c. Snapped a quick shot – that came out a lot lighter than expected – of the view.
The wind in the carpark was a little deceiving behind the bushes. After I’d pumped up the 9 and headed down with surfboard, only to have it blow away in the 30knot gust that came through with a rain squall I decided to swap to the Twintip.
The conditions today were not bad. There was plentiful wind that was quite on shore, surf was between 2ft and 6ft and very messy. Got taken out by one monster dumper and got a good working.
Good see Sonia and a few other die hards turned up early too.
