Looks like the weeks will be Sunday to Sunday, like last year, due to the prices of the flights, but also depends on whether we can the house sun to sun.

For 1 week it's going to be approx £599, 2 weeks £765. The price has gone up from last year for the 1 week due to the price of flights. This includes, flights, accommodation, food in the house and car hire, the only thing it doesn't include is booze and drinks.
Here's the link for it on our website

It's that time guys, for deposits, I'm going to need £100 per week that you wish to join us. If you've been on a trip with us before please pay it into the same account as last time, if not, PM me and I will let you know the bank account details. This money is to reserve the villa. cheers

Marc/Sarah – Are there still places for this and how realistic would it be to be able to ‘book’ up in a month or two. Reason being, buying a new house and so funds will be low yaddy yada but would really love to come if I can make it happen.

The villa is booked! There is no pool, but, it is within walking distance of the beach. It is NOT a beach that we kite at, but it is a lovely beach. Please also remember that the trip will be from Sunday to Sunday due to the price of the flights. The price of the holiday does NOT include booze or the car insurance waiver due when we collect the cars, last year it worked out at about £30 per week per person.

There are still spaces available, I know Griff, you were hoping to still be able to join us. There are 2 places left on the 1st week and 7 places on the 2nd week so just give me a shout if anyone else still wants to join us on this awesome trip.

I am going to need the next payment by approx 16th March to book the flights. Please transfer £220, if anyone pays later than this date, I can still book their flight but the price may have increased. I will also need everyone's passport details, no one can fly unless I have put these details in

Full name
DOB
passport number
Issue date
expiry date
Issue country


Some photos of the villa, more to follow later in this month

We have gone with this villa over ones we have used before mainly cos it's right on the coast and right smack bang between the two spots we kite. Very Happy

The villas we have previously used were approx 35-40mins from the coast, we thought long and hard about which villa to go with and truly believe it will be worth being right on the coast this time. Wink

Getting excited now!!!

Hi Sarah, I'll pay up the week before the deadline if thats ok.

On wetsuits - based on 2011 and 2012, is a shortie recommended? (will I boil in a full spring/summer 3/2?). Videos show a mix of people in board shorts/shorties and full wetties.

Cheers

Thanks to those who have made the final payment.
The weight limit is 32kgs each, between your sports bag and suitcase. The weight distribution between the 2 bags doesn't matter. If you need more weight u can buy more, in the way of a suitcase, not a sports bag. Each bag is £25 extra, let me know if anyone needs this.
