An extreme day at a secret location

Just in From Robert Smits and David Van Boven.
After some time of being very busy with all sorts of things, bad weather…. David and I got out and went to the beach.
When we got there, there was a nice wind, almost completely on shore, which makes for stable winds.
Although the wind was blowing, David decided to grab his Yakuza GT 6.8. When he got it out of his bag, I asked him if it was the right size and he told me it was very big and it would’ve been better to take the 5.5. In reality, he had accidentally put his 8.3 in the bag of the 6.8, so he was actually driving with a 8.3.
When driving along, David decided to test his buggy and see if he could push himself hard enough in his buggy, so he wouldn’t get ejected. After some gentle trying, he tried harder and even with the push of the dunes.. We found a very sweet spot with a nice incline he could use to get airborn. It worked.
He was driving towards the incline around 50 km/h and pulled his kite up at the perfect time, held his brakes on his Yakuza GT 8.3, which made him float and touch down gracefully again. The pure sight of it was awesome! Another driver was trying too, but he couldn’t quite get the same height of jumps that David had. On some jumps, he got up around 2.5 - 3 meters. With his buggy weighing close to 60 kg, he needed some pull.
A lot of jumps later, both of us were having a blast in competing and just playing around with our Yakuza GT’s. Another great day at the beach, hope there will come many more in 2011!
As David and I say, often when the two of us go out driving, “…it was an epic day!”
