The website is getting a re-vamp

Hey All,

Sorry for the lack of posting over the last few months. I’ve been busy doing other personal things and they had been getting on top of me!

You may have noticed that the website over the last few months has been getting slower, this has been frustrating Rob who in turn nagged at me until finally I think we found the problem. We’d been hacked! Fingers are pointing towards China we think and some clever sole had found some bug somewhere that meant they could use our website to send copious amounts of spam email. Thankfully our web provider (www.zuver.com.au) found the problem and helped us out and we got it back up.

So, what does this mean? Well, it turns out the ‘theme’ that we were running on the website was the problem, so that means it’s re-design time!! I’ve taken a bold step and just chosen one, we’ve actually PAID for this one too with thanks to the few people we have who have used our donate button over on the right to help chip in to keep this site running. (A BIG THANKS TO THOSE PEOPLE!)

So, this means I’ve got a few hours going back and fixing up pages, plugging away in photoshop to make some new graphics for the site. I’ve tried to keep it clear and simple and fast and I’m liking where its heading. If you’ve got any ideas for things you’d like to see on here give me a shout in the comments below.

On a side note… A big southerly smashed through Sydney today, I made it down with just a 7m right in time for it to die off just enough that I was struggling to keep going. Lots of people out enjoying themselves tho..

Happy Dayz..

Arghhhh.. We’ve had a few problems…

Hi All,

If you’ve been trying to get onto the website recently you may have noticed that its been down. Basically some internet troll had found a way to use our website to spam the rest of the world with rubbish emails and we were blocked by our provider until it was sorted. Well this took a while and now are back up (well sort of)

The look of the website has been changed as the wizzy theme we had was part of the problem so I’ve quickly changed it something else. It’s not desirable but gets the job done until I get a chance to look at it again.

Please bare with us whilst we get it all back again and keep checking back. we are hoping the site will run quicker now it’s not sending 1000’s of emails.

A new look for the website

For those that have taken a look at the website over the last few days may have noticed that things have changed a little bit again. We’re still working on getting the website up to shape to work well for us and the last look was a little hard to maintain and I didn’t end up liking it as much as I thought I would. So we’ve got a new look and I think it’s pretty cool. Our galleries are working better now and we’ve got more space to work with so stay tuned and keep coming back and sharing links to our posts on facebook etc as the more links we can get the better :).

We’re also working on a new logo to replace the temporary one. If you’d like to help out then feel free to drop us a line. pete@kitesurfing.com.au.

Cheers..
