I was sent this link today from a good friend of mine who as it happens has been keeping a blog about his kite surfing life since WAY back in 2003! He obviously has been going over his website as he sent me the first article he posted on it that sums up how it was back in 2003 and how excited people get.

It makes for a quite amusing read, I’m pretty sure he was on speed or acid when he wrote it as it is a total rambling of stuff before not much about actually kiting. I’m glad to see he has improved along the way!

The rest of his blog waiting for the wind is worth a look at too, his google map showing all the places he has kite surfed is included below. here.

Alex has been part of the Sydney Kite community for some time now and has been a regular instructor at the NSWKBA Kite Chicks weekends which is how we first met. He’s mad keen for kite surfing and his enthusiasm is quite contagious.

Alex also runs Divine Kiting that provides an all-inclusive travel experience to help you learn to kite surf with an all in approach whilst taking in locations that are not the usual Sydney based locations.

Alex (the one on the kite) re-enacts the famous Richard Branson shot with the model. I’m not sure which is nicer to look at, actually I’m really sure which one I’d rather look at!

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.
