I gotta stop watching this stuff. It looks like so much fun I start  getting  ideas . One day in the not to distant future though I think I'm going to have to go a little 🦇 💩 crazy.

Really my first time also...tire sliding fun in 20plus ;) .

I feel like I got bit by a Viper...possibly 3 times. 🤔

...and a friend just got a quiver of older Phantoms and a ride.

I feel some buggy riding in my future more often. 😁 So much fun..

      Rain...rain...and more rain.... Figured I would take the time and contribute a small amount   It has been sometime since I have used the forum and with a busy kiting season approaching,  personally and with #TKL , might as well get back into the swing of things. What better place? 
      Since Jekyll Island Buggy Expo this year.... I dove in. Acquired a full size buggy (Elliot Virus?) and a trio of fixed bridle Peter Lynn Vipers consisting of the 3 smaller sizes 2.6m/3.9m/5.3m near the same time  a friend got her Peter Lynn Drifter and a full quiver of Peter Lynn Phantoms 6m-18m. I have wanted to do this for sometime and with the addition of a friend interested pushing me along, So be it.  After all, I am a #floridakiteflier / Kitebumbychoice and have an awesome beach locally..and Jekyll is just a short drive away.  Some struggles at the start, a few rolls , some out of control slides, even ejected the kite once or twice. Once a good onshore and proper conditions hit, I was hooked....literally (Captive). A video of my first good long ride on the 3.9 Viper S and Drifter (Jekyll Island) can be found in the playlist link below.
      It only took a few rides on the handles and strop before the de-powers were shouting....  " Fly me!!!!! " ..and since I have been in the care of the Phantoms... I did ,once the bigger buggy was acquired Totally different flavor between the 2 styles of kites and buggies ..each producing sore muscles and smiles that make your cheeks hurt. The de-powers are easier on my body in the long run and provide more ride time for me. The larger buggy is luxurious...lol  Adjustable too fit me where I feel comfy and holds the body way different than the Peter Lynn.
      As things progress ...naturally you get faster and braver 😛 I think I have the minimum basics down now....consistent speed in similar wind conditions on the 9m and 12m Phantom  (Top Speed 40mph ), the ability and knowledge to scrub speed in a few ways , knowledge and comfort with my gear and most of all.... Common Sense.   Looking forward to some good wind next ride, work on some slides ,upwind turns and maybe some reverse play  It has been horrible wind/weather and rain for weeks here it seems lately. Next good day is looking like the day after Xmas and I will be there with an onshore of 13-19mph......
      Anyways....I have added a link to the Kitebumbychoice : buggy playlist and a few photos of the adventures so far. Look forward to adding more in this section in the near future...... until then.
