Hoping for a bit of wind tomorrow / Wednesday evening for an after-worky but Rest is a no go due to tides. Has anyone got any good suggestions in the Cardiff area (without driving to Weston)?

Has anyone kited at Sker / Kenfig (I’ve heard it’s a bit of a walk from the car park) and is it useable at high tide?

Many thanks all

I really hate to be smug but in Cyprus getting 20 knots of thermal every day - I have even used my 9m......

Have also gone 'strapless' on the surf board - is this the new convo to take over from kite sizes....? Loving the freedom and foot changes are sooooo much easier :-)

Yup Sker is do able but a long walk and the tide may still be too high..i.e up on the pebble bank.
Better bet is Aberavon.. 10mins more down the M4 and kite up in front of the dunes.


Hey Mike, yes been strapless now also for a while and gybing/tacking is way way easier, loving it in these lighter winds/small waves but will not hesitate to put them back on when it pumps!

The flags r a pain in the a*se but we MUST stay out of that area, up past the golf club, because if we don't they will ban us from kiting at rest. If you can't stay up wind, please get out and walk up the beach. If your out the back, when down that end, then you're obviously ok.

The lifegaurds were not happy for kiters to be out the back because if something goes wrong you could end up in the crowds. A few weeks ago they told me i cant go past the surf area flag to far right of the beach.

Agreed, if you are not a competent kiter and your only just out the back of the surfer/swimmer area your asking for trouble. We see it regularly where someone kites down that end of the beach and then ends up dragging through the swimmers back to the beach.

But if your way out the back I can't see how they can be too worried and certainly they have never asked us to do stay up from the flags even out the back...what if I'm a mile out?  Very Happy
