Hey people, there is something amazing going on at Mtwalume. I have never seen such a thing in KZN. The recent heavy rains have broken through the sandbar dumbing sand on Elysium reef. It has formed…Continue

You see guys I'm a planner. I saw the front coming and planned to go away. Now I don't need to invent excuses or deliver the goods. Boom. Have fun I'm actually massively jealous and plotting an escape.
Bruce this thing seems to be working fine. Lekker 3G here in ST Lucia. Some options not available but seems functional.

I'm sensing a leaching of bravado...the real test will be on the day - who shows up and who sends through "reasons" for not making it - so if you post anything along the lines of: sorry guys, can't make it because of....chapped lips, sore elbow, stubbed toe, nagging wife, puncture in the leading edge, kite too big, kite too small, no pump, big saturday night, stomach bug, no wetsuit, etc - you will be regarded as a soft cock!  

Alec - I can't believe that you're "going sailing" - you're ven more hardcore than Craig!

Dean, Dean, Dean....what can be said...I know you're up for it...are you harcore enough to leave the family to catch a minibus taxi from St Lucia?

Whatever you guys are doing - be safe out there on Sunday and have a Jol.

10am at Westbrook for all those that are feeling the flutters right now. WhatsApp / text / BBM / Call me on 0827722938 on Sunday morning for the final arrangements.

A heads-up for you guys that access the Kitesports website on your phone, there is now a BETA mobile site available -

Give it a try and any feedback will be appreciated.

Maybe a Checkers packet then...

Comment by Bruce Gaynham on June 8, 2012 at 13:16

If I can join you guys I'm going to pull out the BIG GUN - the Ozone Uno 2.5m!!

There is no out for you Craig.  Just bring home the stories.  I don't want to hear that it was too cold, too big too windy too far.....................................................

Go big Craig.  Those other monkeys will get caught in the foam pile.  10 to 15 foot of foam is a lot of white.  You want a big motor to outrun that lot.  Hook up a 12 Hadlow ID.

yeah, I know, me too. I haven'y been this amped in a while - already submitted my leave application to the Guv and got my pink ticket stamped...whooooohooooo indeed!

Aahh, that's how all of this starts, but then later there's the running and screaming.***- Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcom (Jurassic Park)
