Looking promising for the end of the week at least! I'll be heading West on Thursday to catch the best of it. Fingers crossed, it's been quite a drought.

Fresh back from a week in Cornwall, managed to score a few 12m strapless sessions at Watergate and Perranporth..what lacked in wind was made up by full on sun and some pumping waves!

Cheers Splashy for the 7` 10, well used.. got stung by weever fish, a very nice blond lady from the lifeguards looked after me with a bucket and kettle!

I`ll be out if its windy end of week..looks good  sunny

Mike. If you do head down will you post up. Potentially could be better than the meter reading as I don't think easterlies hit the meter cleanly. Cheers

Alun, or anyone else who's been to Aber recently, is there much debris on the beach? Read on post recently it was littered. Thinking of a lesson there tomorrow. Don't mind walking further up if it's clearer...Cheers

Nice session today at Rest. Gave the demo Epic 13m a try.
Very Nice kite,
Im not going to say its better that my 12m Core, But,, (It is)
Easy to control and easy to relaunch.. not that I had to do it very often Very Happy 
I wish I could control my feet and board skills as easy !!  scratch 
My favourite is still the Epic Surf.
Do you want it back now Sarah or can I have a few more go's ??

Must have missed you James! I parked up at Car Park 2 next to the Visitor Centre (where I was told to move on despite the car park there being empty...).

Some folks came out around 3 just as the bridle on my Epic snapped.

Pembrey makes a really nice change from the usual wave spots of Rest and Aber. Really good for practising moves and changing my feet on the surf board - its so shallow for quite a long way out.

Down side is the 90 min drive each way from Cardiff  Crying or Very sad

I was back up in the car park for a bit of a break! Really lovely day, even got an hour of sunshine! It's worth the drive to be able to kite in clear water.....Llanelli is banging today. 9/7 depending on your preference and mirror flat water next to the sandbanks  Very Happy
