Hi Guys,

Just registered to post some pics I took of some kiteboarders on Stradbroke Island on the 23rd of May 2015 at 1200pm. Some guys were taking a one way express train north. The wind was howling that day. If you're these guys, I've got more pics from the day.

Cheers
Dan

Looks like Moti on the LF and maybe Col Tec on one of the cabs.....

Sth Straddie or North?

Definitely Moti I believe. Recall seeing something on FB about a 170km downwinder, not sure where they started from, but Sandgate was the intended landing point However, don't know why (perhaps their legs weren't burning enough) and they didn't land at Sandgate and kept going to Redcliffe

Mammoth effort, quite a loooong run!!
I'm guessing they went around Point Lookout and through the passage past Amity, then tacked down the bay to Redcliffe (I'm guessing ofcourse, I don't actually know the route taken), but certainly ballsy, I'd be ****ting myself past PL and wouldn't be too relaxed until mostly across the Bay. Good to hear it all went well however.

Yeh, on one of the Liquid Forces would be Moti, on the other Liquid Force, Jamie and the Cabby, Coltech.
These guys are well known for their little downwind excursions

G'day Dan,
Yep that was Moti, Matt C and myself. Fun downwinder from Narrowneck to Redcliff (180km). Legs were burning after that run but was epic wind!

Cheers
Jamie
