Does Anyone Kite Board this ? 37mi of Pristine Coastline !

Postby Bille » Sat Dec 17, 2011 6:36 pm

Watch the first 0:15sec, then fast forward to 2:22 min.
Some Awesome looking Coastline, not being used ; and obviously
there is wind, or the glider wouldn't go up !
The guy filming said it was Saturday.

Yes - awesome riding - was about 1.15 drive from my place in NZ. The kite buggying is even better than the kitesurfing - nearly 100km of hard pack beach to blast. There is one local rider that gets out there every day it is on.

Cheers,

DK

Hey SP - your profile says your in Hong Kong and mine says New Zealand - since we swapped locations we better update eh!

When you get the chance you should grab the truck and do a low tide mission along this beach to the north head of the kaipara harbour - there isn't a better place to kite buggy in the world!

Cheers,

DK

Hi Bille,

Why fast forwarding? I enjoyed every second of that clip. Unfortunately it is in freezing kiwi land. :nono2:

Maybe you like some aerial visions of my kiting backyard too? And there is more than 90 miles of that pristine coastline... :D



Luiz is the man who took that clip and flew the plane.

That video was Fun !

Ya got a Beautiful place to Kite & hang-out at !!

What camera & active servo do you use ?

Does it have Telemetry ? Name ??

The skinny white guy, (Luiz ?) at 0.12 was Cool
But
Can i see "More" of the Fly Girl at 0.12, Please ?? !!
just like women that can Fly --------------------a Lot !!

You should have Him/Her fly & follow You, while your Kiting ,( one each side)
would make a COOL video !!

Flying down the Wave ; i actually Tried that with my Hobie Hawk
it went in the ocean. (sigh)

& He "Catches It" at the End !!!---------------------NICE !!!!
Buy your friend Luiz a cold Beer for Me.

Show Luiz the sailplane i'm currently building :

Luiz uses various planes and cameras, but mainly the Skywalker/Easyglider Pro and GoPro/Aiptek HD1/Jazz178.

Check out his website.
