Wait Westozzy, this is only the beginning with your son. You are going to share some amazing adventures together. Nice job and nice picture.
Now I have people at the beach asking me if I can take their kids for a ride. Anything to make the kids happy since my 11 year old son is too big and he is on his own now :(

Damn don't know how to put in a photo, ta oldnbroaken man appreciate that.

We should start a kids riding thread. Lol. Sure there are some crackers out there. Love the one with the little dude hanging on for dear life to the bar. Gonna have to give that one a crack as he can control a trainer kite real well. Had him running up the beach yesterday one handed on the bar.

Yeh man can't wait till he gets to an age his mum will let me buy him a real kite and get him on the water.

Yeh there was an older bloke who pulled me up in Bali over the life jacket thing. He had a point... :oops:

Then again my boys a water baby, can swim real well and it was just flat water light tropical winds.

Then again we have hit waves together (he can already surf!) before on kites, SUPS and Surfboards...mmm think me needs to get a bouyancy vest just in case.

These are some action pictures from yesterday on the SURF 12 meter kite prototype. You will see I am using the REEF 5'7" and the REEF 6'0" in the same day because it got too choppy.

Dimitri undoubtedly has the skills..... but a life vest and a helmet for the grom seems pretty smart...
