Hey Chris,
Just be carefull, there is a big fella with a beard that flies a big green North kite that gets sh11ty if you drop in on him.

If you get abused just tell him there a Bintan with his name on it at Putu's.

Nah all good , have fun.

Yeah your right Edward, i was a grumpy old bastard. I like most males don't do pain very well.
I really do love our time there.
Might of been a hasty call.

I went to my dentist a couple of weeks before my holidays to make sure the choppers were ok. All good now.


Those kites do get a flogging so not totally surprised.Smiley is still smiling.


Wheres the pic of you jumping the boats 62.

Tracks had a great time.

... local dudes got skillz man, give him a f'd up kite in the arvo, all wet and sandy,,,,, damn thing is ready to fly next morning alllllll fixed.

He fixed my kite just recently and my repair job was in a sheeet of a spot, where strut meets LE, but $50 later and all good,,, would have normally been a $200 job at home!

Ask for Kadek at any of kite schools!

Cheers,

Guezz, i thought i was watching Mr Squiggle for a minute.
Pretty impressive. What was the ratio bewteen Bintan to km ?

That gives a total different view of what i thought that area would look like from above.
