Had a nice quick evening session over in Weston on my 11.5m, but it didn't last long. Looks like that was it for the foreseeable future?

I thought there might be something at weston this afternoon. I was sidetracked servicing my bike. When I came back in at 5 flatholm was showing 18mph. So I should've gone for 4pm Rolling Eyes

I was out getting some footage with the Quad....had it up real high then lost control of it as it started heading, no idea where/how

Switched off my hand control and guess what...after a few seconds it started to make it's way back to me and landed right where it took off from...stoked/relieved!

Next you'll be saying that the quad copter goes out at night "by itself" and brings you back things, and you have no idea where those things came from...

If the Flatholm weather station is telling the truth looks like there could be another session at Weston this evening, currently blowing 21 MPH, hopefully will be there for 18.00  pirat

You might be ok. Wind is dropping, now showing 18. Normally it over reads compared to the beach by about 4 or 5 mph

Was tempted myself, but it's looking wet and I CBA with the little showers pushing through

Hopefully you'll have a good one Smile

Yeh i swore as i saw the update at 18.04 driving through Congesbury. It got a few runs in while it was dry, it picked up and rained for a bit and finished up swinging to slightly cross off, which made me come in as i was by myself.

You didn't miss much  Sad

Three of the us out at Rest yesterday on 15 & 16m kites. It was 11-12kts and I could just hold ground on my aging 16m... Still was nice to be out and just enough to unhook in....

Out at the (very) muddy place yesterday evening. 6.30 - 8.30 ish

On the 14, plenty of power on a small demo board. Wind dropped a little so came back in for my returned board, went back out and the wind picked back up. So a bit over powered

A nice 2hrs session, watched the sun set eating our after kite session munchy  Cool 


Wind is pretty flakey at the mo'  Crying or Very sad Looking better from weds I hope

I nearly jumped on the van but then realised it's a sea breeze, probably be gone by the time I get to the water! Windy here too but tides are total poop for Weston..

Have a great session! Smile

Nice   Cool 

I've been de-sanding the van and checking over some of my bars \ lines - exciting stuff  Rolling Eyes 
Still pretty tired after last nights session  Embarassed 
Also sloooow cooking some pork belly, Chinese style for later  Very Happy Nom, nom, nom

Moose, weston next week is lunchtime tides, so you'll need the afternoons off.
http://www.n-somerset.gov.uk/Leisure/Documents/2014%20tide%20times%20(pdf).pdf
Better going to wales for evening sessions

It is also the muddiest I have ever seen it  No 
Due to very little swell and lack  of strong W winds, the mud has collected over the whole bay. Yesterday was the first time for a while for us and the walk out was through ankle deep mud. It was f'ng terrible IMO  Shocked 

Unless we get some good swell and good w winds, it is prob going to stay the whole summer  Evil or Very Mad

Rest or Aber it is then!! I maybe able to do a lunchtime one, although this would upset my better half!!  Shocked So maybe not!!

Just had a quite pleasant light wind session at Rest Bay, me on the 12m Surf and Sarah on the 11m Renegade, enjoyed it so much we clean forgot about the club meeting!
Ooops!  Embarassed 

ps why oh why was it held in Swansea Bay? ...anywhere else and we probably could have made it but not down Oyster Mouth Rd.
