PostSubject: SWWKSC Pack Down Refresher   Fri May 10, 2013 6:33 am

In association with Blast Kiteboarding the SWWKSC will be holding a free pack down/safety refresher course for club members on 2nd June 2013, 6pm at Aberavon beach. We will be focussing on the emergency pack down procedure but we can cover any safety related topics that may arise. This event is open to all SWWKSC members and we would love to see a good turnout especially from those new to kite surfing who could benefit from a reminder of this very important skill.

Non members wanting to attend just need to join the the SWWKSC, follow the link and choose "South & West Wales Club" from the drop down menu. This will also provide you with the necessary insurance from the BKSA.

So the weather is looking nice but not windy on Sunday which will be fine for the pack down refresher at Aberavon, 6pm.

Please bring any kit that you want to discuss or you are unsure of with you so that we take take a look at it. We will be laying on a few beers/soft drinks after.

I was going to attend but I've had a medical emergency in the family and it's very unlikely I'll make it - I would have liked to have supported this (and do a bit of revision as well...).

Much appreciated for your time and effort in arranging this and ideally I would have loved to attend but the weather looks a bit of "none starter" as far as any kiting goes, plus I only got in from todays session half an hour ago. Hope it goes well

Yeah, was a great evening. Many thanks to Blast and Mark W who gave up their time to provide tuition, and to James for organising food/drinks.

So following on from the dozen or so that kindly supported the SWWKSC Pack Down eve, a kite was lost to sea yesterday at Coney

The RNLI then launched a boat after the kiter notified them no one was attched and not to worry tto much (good man)
Anyway the kiter shouted out to me "how to packdown" just before it went off in the cross off winds.

Heres a vid of a packdown.....
