Just saying hello; been landboarding through the summer mostly down at the Gower. Just returned from 12 days in Tarifa (only 5 good days of kitesurfing though) and completely love it! Bought 7.5 and 11.5 Best Kahunas and a locally made second hand board; can't wait to use them! Thinking I may need a 9.5 at some point as well but I'm going to try and manage with 2 kites for now. I'm just about riding upwind but need a lot more practice!!

So...winter wetsuit, boots, helmet, buoyancy vest and gloves have arrived, insurance all paid for so good to go! Looking forward to getting down to South Wales (I spend most of my rest days in Bristol but work in London). Also plan on joining the Hayling Island club as it's easy to get to from my South East base.

Girlfriend did 3 days in Tarifa but was put off due to 40 knot winds and 12ft waves...says she wants another go in easier conditions so there's still hope Very Happy She can at least help with launching and landing now Laughing

Time to sell the land kites which I'll put on the for sale section if anybody is interested - Ozone Frenzys 9 and 12m (2005 and 2006).

Hoping to meet a few peeps....

Ben

Hey Ben welcome to our forum and local area. There's a great bunch of kiters around here I'm sure you'll get to meet all of them eventually. When ever there's wind we're kiting so Hopefully catch you down the beach when we get back from Brazil.

Thanks for the greetings, I'll look forward to seeing you at the beach. Due to (lack of) time off at the moment it looks like I will be at Hayling next weekend and then Porthcawl the next (wind permitting).

Ben.
