Only 1 week to go to our summer Jam, just hope the temperatures improve, it is still supposed to summer isn't it? been a bit nippy this week.
The forecast has suddenly improved for this week also, just hope it holds.

Windy as here and a nice clean wave. Obviously not kite-able as its well offshore. Keep us updated on Coney . Got a sneaky hour after the rain cleared yesterday , it suddenly went SW and warm for about an hour !

hey guys, hope you're all well. Any tips for the next few days, might tomorrow at Oxwich bay be good? i might try to make a trip out and hang around the area if there are options over next 3 days. Looking for flatish water (quite newbie still just doing straight runs at the mo)
Cheers

Oxwich or Coney could be OK tomorrow unless it gets too much N, Thursday should see the wind swing back to a SW and Friday and Saturday should be good.

Two girls were loving it..6.5m then on a 5m but not crazy winds and steady too....where was everyone?

Got in at Tenby for a monster afternoon session. Perfectly lit on the 6.5 renegade, the easterly wind brought with it cracking waves, not massive but surprisingly clean. Having a seal following you around the bay adds to the experience too...SWEEET

Just a reminder......

The call has been made and it's on!

We will be meeting at the Navel Club on Scarlett Avenue, Aberavon at 11am for registration


The Blast Summer Jam
.......we have a whole load of prizes many from the local club SWWKC that will be given out...but not just to the best guys on the water!

There will be a registration at 11am at the Navel Club Aberavon SA12 7PH (just up from the new car park on Scarlett Av)
Please all come to this as you will be given a raffle ticket also which could win you some cool kit.
This is NOT a competition, it simply to get all those like minded together and have a ride together and have a laugh.

We have reps from a few brands attending and a heap of demo gear to check over/try. Then later in the pm we will be holding the raffle and giving out the superduper prizes.

If your not up for going actually riding but able to help us out in any way please come along and give us a shout..we will need help carrying the tents/demo kit down onto the beach (very short walk from the Navel Club) and then some basic marshalling...keeping everyone in the correct zone etc

Demo kit available from :

Shinn
Blankforce
Axis
Airush
Ozone
Star
Epic
Mutiny
Brunotti

and much more.....

ps there is a cafe at the Navel Club that serves all the usual inc. a very nice breakfast  Cool
pps the winds look pretty promising now also  :-D

Bring it on!

Huh, Friday afternoon?
If anything you'll need the 7m or probably smaller. It's already picked up to around 30mph here.
I'm going to check in the morning then decide, we still have some more kit too arrive plus a load of boards to build up and kit/flags/gazebo etc to sort tomorrow.

what an amazing day at aber today!!! fully powered on 9m and competently riding the surfboard. best idea ever to leave twin tip at home.

good swell on the drop (10ft) although was slightly messing with big gaps out back.

6 of us on surfboards and 1 on twin tip what a change!! big up to the boys from kent you nailed it.


not sure where all the rocks and brick on beach has come from!! be careful at tomorrows blast summer jam.

all in all exhausted but bring on tomoz. I am sure the vodka tonight will ease my aches :-)

It was just one of those lush summers day's of kiting! And I came down expecting to kick some kites and chew the cud about gear. Wasn't expecting a session! Even some sweet flat bits in between the waves..!

Stoked...

Yup we really have been blessed with some awesome summer breezes for the past few months now...so many BDE's

Great to see mr & mrs moose (to be) out on the water too.
Really can't believe how lucky we have been with this summer jam.
