For a fair portion of 2012/2013 our mate Dave has been hard at work on a small private project to build the world best kite buggy. he’s had some great success with his product and it is a pretty serious piece of kit. You can check it out here @ www.carbonkitebuggy.com.
Back in September last year Dave had his first prototype ready to go. The weekend was picked in advance, all leave passes were approved, the location was chosen as Stockton Beach in Newcastle, we were locked in!
Then came the weekend of the 11th September 2012. WIND : 50+ knots. SEA : HUGE. BEACH : err, what beach! The east coast of NSW was hit by a huge storm. It had been brewing for a few days and had not stopped raining for days. But we were locked in so we had to bite the bullet and go.
Now we’ve never used a kite buggy before, we are all good kite surfers but this is different stuff. We opted for the safety of the 1m foil kite and that was getting ripped out of our hands at times on the Saturday. The Sunday proved a little nicer and we could remove some of the snow boarding gear we’d been wearing on the Saturday – in September!.
Anyway, below is a gallery of some of the images we got that weekend. Hope you enjoy.[/vc_column_text] [vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”3″ onclick=”link_image” images=”112,131,132,130,129,128,127,126,125,124,123,122,121,120,119,118,117,116,115,114,113,111,110,109,108,107,106,105,104,103,102,101,100,99,98,97″ custom_links_target=”_self” el_position=”last”] [/vc_column] [/vc_row]
