On a side note, i have been dabbling in airbrushing. I painted my friends bike recently and my welding mask.





All paint, no stickers.

Now for the fun part. Any of you guys with those sexy fibreglass birds that are interested in a one off paint job?

Behind the blue Gobi is a Fluteboy, correx wing that flies very nicely.

Nice little GOBI. Where do you get them? Nice slope, where is it from Grahamstown?
I saw Andrew flying a GOBI with the pitcheron setup, works really well.

the ridge south of Grahamstown, known as Mountain Drive. we have several spots for varying wind conditions. This spot is known as 'the superbowl' because it is a bowl and is super in a south westerly. NW to NE works nicely, SE to SW very good. easterly = stay home.

Pick and Pay Hyper has the Gobi, we had to ask them to get it specially here. freaked them out a bit, they got in a box of 12 and sold out in 2 days (-: the manager said a lady took 2 while he was packing them on the shelf.

Well hopefully you've been practicing your throws over the past year -- your throw at 1:30 of Bakkie's video was a girly throw for sure!
