About Me

Hi, I’m Mark and I’m addicted to kite buggying... I live in Baldivis (bal as in pal, di as in dead and vis is vis!) about half an hour south of Perth in Western Australia – I emigrated to Aus from Shropshire with my wife and two daughters, the best move we ever made. 

When not out in the buggy you will find me on http://www.extremekites.com.au/ where I am gum-nuts…

Purely hypothetical...

Yesterday I was comparing the Sonic FR and Ozone R1, I have been dreaming of getting a 6m R1 ever since I tried the 11m in the buggy, but thought I would look at the other options...

The 6m R1 and 9m Sonic are priced similarly, by the time you add bar and lines in - but looking at the wind ranges the 9m Sonic has a much larger wind range, which would theoretically cover both the two kites I own now.

Which means I could argue suggest to my wife that one kite would replace two kites which I could then sell to partly fund the new kite, the rest of which could be Christmas/birthday present!

Am I reading this wrong or does the Sonic have a seriously impressive wind range? It also looks awesome in the the black, the kite not the wind range...
