It started with a hobby.

A big hobby of mine is kiting and I wanted to expand that hobby by making a kite buggy. A good friend was already experienced in the field of kitebuggying and helped me creating a realistic design. I started sketching until I had a good looking result. After that we made some adjustments to the dimensions and materials to make sure the buggy would be strong enough.

The Result.

The aspects that needed some more attention is preventing the buggy from tipping by harsh winds, comfortable seating and ample margins and adjustability of length so that the buggy could be used by tall people as well. After a few days grinding, welding and sanding the parts were ready to be galvanized. This is done in Alphen a / d Rijn by Pos Smederij (Blacksmith) in Hazerswoude-dorp.

The galvanized parts fit well together and are beautifully finished. The construction can easily hold 2 adults and the suspension on the front and rear axis is properly adjusted to the weight of 1 adult. If an axis would ever wore off or break down the short axis can be unscrewed from the big axis and can easily be replaced. After a successful test run on the beach, I am satisfied about the result of this project.
