Kite Buggying is an exciting sport which does require kite flying experience and proper safety precautions.


Kite Buggying

Whether on grass, sand or dry lake bed, Kite Buggying is an exciting wind sport in its own right. Sitting inches from the ground on the Stainless Steel Buggy, you are propelled by highly maneuverable 4 line kites. Adjusting the kite for optimum efficiency with your hands and steering the Buggy with your feet.

Flying lines are usually 75 feet long and with a little practice you're able to cruise around and get back to where you began. As with all sports activities, it is important to seek professional advice before starting.

You can Kite Buggy on any flat open space with constant 'clean' wind. Trees, buildings and people are to be avoided. Hard packed sand, (hard enough to bycicle on) or a grassy sports field, (with permission) are best to get started on.

Learn to fly your kite well, before getting into the buggy. Start with a small kite. As basic guidelines; In the early stages, position the kite overhead, were the pull is minimized and then get into the buggy. Point the buggy about 70 degrees off downwind and steer the kite gradually into the power zone on your downwind side until you begin to move forward.

The leading edge of the kite generally points in the direction of travel, not straight up. Do not allow the kite to get too far into the power zone as the pull may become excessive. If you steer the buggy too far downwind you will initially accelerate, but the flying lines will slacken as you catch up to the kite.

Steering the buggy too far upwind will cause forward motion to stop and if the kite is low and downwind, you will be dragged sideways. To slow down, steer the buggy upwind and fly the kite high and out of the power zone.

180 degree turns should be quite tight with the buggy, so as not to travel too far downwind and catch up to the kite. Gradually slow down, bring the kite to a high position and turn it, then turn the buggy towards downwind, trying to maintain tension in the flying lines.

Once you've mastered the basics, try a dry lakebed for some of the best kite buggying around! Watch some Videos of Kiting and Buggying!
