About Me

My photo

Hi, I’m Mark and I’m addicted to kite buggying... I live in Baldivis (bal as in pal, di as in dead and vis is vis!) about half an hour south of Perth in Western Australia – I emigrated to Aus from Shropshire with my wife and two daughters, the best move we ever made. 

When not out in the buggy you will find me on http://www.extremekites.com.au/ where I am gum-nuts…

I do listen...

My foot pegs on the buggy have required frequent and regular reapplication of the grip tape...

After listening to the advice given to me on Extreme Kites, today I took a trip to the tip and came home with a mountain bike wheel and tyre - 



After removing the tyre and cutting it down I now have some rubber grips on my foot pegs - 



And plenty of spare to replace it in the future -
