Apologise to Eric for me. Forecast only got good last night. Until then was looking dodge. It is hard to forecast more than 2 days out. Ask Eric if that is enough time to get him here in future...

Wind was averaging 40kts, Wainui Ridge in Christchurch

Any videos Alex?
Would be great to see, maybe would just be a blur.
Well done. I will be happy if I get to 200 one day.
Cheers

That's totally sweet-az, bro!!! Fantastic Alex, well done. We're all super impressed with your incredible persistence (must have been the fastest windburner rebuild ever!) and how you're out there breaking new ground all by yourself! Geez, what an achievement. Lots of us are sitting here looking at your video, perfect conditions, incredible site, incredible flying, and thinking ... he's got that hill totally to himself, how amazing!
