there are 30 named members for landboarding and buggies,but as long as you kite in the right area .and the area allowed is right down the bottom, on the left hand side which is quite small until the tide goes out but sometimes buggy racers go there and there really is not enough room for that side of the sport , charging down the beach at 50 mph
- the locals were complaining seeing buggies flying tru the air and landboarders , so it was 30 members named or we ban it , 2003 , and it is quite a long walk down the beach ,but some times I've seen like 50 kite surfers there, but we don't ever clash with them , they want water , we want hard beach - it was amazing in the early days watching the gravity renegrades crew - I distinctly remember the moment when I was watching mark everitt buggy jumping and all the rest of it -I phoned my wife and said "I've just work out how to,how they jump, and then I was away slowly at first , and that's sorta what I have to do now , take it slowly at first, and I thought i'll get the best modern kites ,i'm 57 and my coordination is a bit off ,after the shit I've had , but I had a really good early morning session at Cleethorpes this weekend , flying my speed 2 10 metre delux black and gold , and I knew I can still do this , especially if I use depower foils , flicking myself about and sliding and I had some big jumps offered to me , but I was a bit tender with it and I had a couple of ones where I took a bit , let it off and took abit more , i'll build up to using more power and go for it again , I use to go high with the softest of landing,and that's my aim again
luckily i havent been around land yachts-can they stop quick?
buggy jumping started at Brancaster and there was a time when only rob hills and mark everitt, had and could do it , but it soon caught on but it seems very rare now
