Rest would have been better today mike? Rest is the best place to go on a NO and even sometimes a NNW,  it's cross / cross off at Aber on those directions.

Tomorrow should b ok direction for Rest, possibly Aber, just depends on how much N will b in it. Just look out for the tides at Rest.  

Yeah agreed, I wouldn't normally do Aber in a NW'ly direction but there seemed to be a lot of Northly in the wind and on the map, Aber has a coast that runs closer to north than Rest, so I thought Rest would be more offshore....I did think to pop by Rest on the way to Aber but didn't want to pay the parking fee!!

Definitely a Rest Bay day today!!!

Are there any hazards at the Ogmore end of Newton beach (other than crossing the river on foot with gear) that would make it a problem for kite surfing? Lots of beach a t low tides

Just to make those at Aber feel good.....me and Andy G had some decent wind today at Rest....just proves Aber is awful in NW and if Rest is out then Broughton is prob a good option.

Steve, DO NOT kite at Ogmore, there are lots of things not safe about it, especially for beginners. Just stick to where we all mainly go, Porthcawl beaches and Aber.

Sunday is looking promising, hoping to get some lessons done.

Gonna go in here later. Its pretty much cross at the mo , hopefully will swing a little as the afternoon wears on. If you do go to rest please do be careful of the Nippers. They will be in the water doing relays , swim and rescue boards. We want the lifeguards on our side !

Interesting early afternoon at Rest. Nice day, very busy. Winds were quite challenging at times, mostly strong out the back, but very variable close to the shoreline, with some pretty big holes. One made my kite fall out of the sky just as I was strapping in. Managed to keep it airborne the rest of the day, though there were some dodgy moments. Boat came out to rescue someone (no names) who suffered a wind hole whilst quite far from shore. No complaints though, great to be out again.

If wind reflects the bbc forecast for direction both rest bay or aberavon will work - I favour aberavon for easy car parking and access
