PostSubject: New to Blast (Bristol Based)   Sat Jun 02, 2012 9:56 am

Hi,

Just wanted to say hi to all, just joined Blast. I'm Bristol based, had a few lessons with a few instructors in Rest and Abervon (unfortunately not Blast, lol apologies Laughing )

Me and my Girlfriend (yes managed to rope in the gf to have lessons too lol, lucky man) both are learning and have 7,9,11 between us.

Anyway we've popped to rest bay and aberavon a couple times but we are really just getting on our feet.

Anyone else from Bristol give me a nod, could be good to meet up and share rides (have a car) and also learn from the wealth of experience out there (charm was never my strong point Very Happy ).

Thinking of hitting Aberavon or rest tomorrow (wind permitting of course, gf's not coming as shes got work) so would be good to meet up with some people or if anyone needs a ride let me know.

Thanks, Rory

Thanks all, I hit Aberavon last Mon, I was on the green 09 Waroo...spending most of the time with my face in the water Smile You may have seen me with my gf's Crazyfly board (not the most masculine of boards I have to admit Smile)

Think blast may have helped me launch my kite at one point, thank you! Next time hopefully Cordelia will come down (shes getting a bit disheartened as she's not got up on the board yet)

Blast do you offer one to one lessons? Think Cordelia could do with a refresher lesson from your felmale instructor, Maui? Ladies perspective might help her Smile

Thanks Richie, Cordelia was buzzing after the lesson she had with you last year.

Hi Rory, yes we offer 1-2-1 lessons, our students find it really helps. It is frustrating at times, in the beginning, when everyone is flying back and forth around you. Sometimes what I find beneficial also, is when beginners are practising and I'm out kiting I keep an eye on them and I can c what they're doing more and then offer some hints and tips.
But I can definately help her out with a lesson aswell, just give me a shout.
