With the WA season in full swing ( well up here anyhow)
thought it's worth a mention about a great repairist , spent a morning slurping tea watching his craft at his workshop watching him turn some nasty looking kitemares into good as new again, He's a passionate kiter so values lost time on the drink, local pick up points or at the spots, Was a pleasure watching him do his trade to keep us on the water,







The light box was crazy how it showed up holes and future dramas that weren't apparent to a general view, kites, sails , foil kites , trusted to all your local retailers and brands
a bloke with knowing

AND he's got a Heavy Duty sewing machine that can repair Harness tears or broken buckle straps.
I had one strap break and he found the opposite ones were about to pull out of the original stitching - all fixed and rock solid.

Is this an actual informative post from Captain underpants?
There's no wind graphs or pictures of sheep.

I'm going to rush outside and check for flying pigs.

That wasn't the kite on the table though. Who ate that?

Could do with some goats like that here to clean the beach up...

And the waves. And the wind
