been sunny past hour here, now another squall coming through and as you say the winds picked up but it's also pissing stair rods down, torrential rain.

This is why we posted about stormy conditions, the wind/weather is never settled. We are going to wait till pm and the low has moved further away and we hopefully get more stable winds and weather, maybe even NW winds  Cool

What a cracking afternoon in the end...can't believe I was so powered on a 5m!! and Sarah powered on a 4m in big surf too!


Also can't believe that someone did a self launch in front of the rocks on a 12m kite...we were all pumping up 7m maximum!

A good job there was someone close enough to grab his kite while he was getting dragged on his arse

It was well overhead and cleaner than I expected. Got munched a few times!!Stunning though. The big tide and self landing meant I was out of sand just after 16.00.. Back home for work tomorrow GUTTED. Looks like tomorrow should be good.

Had a great day yesterday at the Brey but it was completely savage at Weston today. Huge lumps in the wind and I was just shaken like rag doll on Shireen's 6m Rally. Not enjoyable at all. I was told it went 18 to 36 at one time!! A few out but quite a few decided better of it. Wish I had stayed in Wales!!

I can't believe anyone would self launch a 12m in today's wind!! Right next to the rocks too. I dont understand why people self launch when there a other kiters a few feet away??
