Small kites and experienced only me thinks! affraid 

This a proper winter depression heading our way (if it stays as predicted) so will be big surf/strong winds but still warm water!  cheers

Great conditions at Aber today, shame there was zero thought to safety by most present..I left in the end 'cos not impressed

http://blast.forumotion.com/t2553-aberavon-safety#26283


Remember one word DISTANCE

I did a self launch up the beach and the bridle caught and the kite looped but at least I had distance and and a bloody great big sand dune in front of me!

I got there and managed to self launch, but there wasn't enough wind to self land.
Had a very light wind session in about 7mm of water Very Happy

It's only just occurred to me, a skim board would have been perfect with my 10!!! Very Happy
