Well that was a "best weekend ever"
Saturday was pretty awesome but yesterday was way better again...the power of a good sea breeze hey! Just checked the stats and at 11am when we met it was less than 10mph...from about 12.30 till 5pm it was just over 20mph and sunny and warm!

Thanks to all those that helped out over the weekend, we can not do these things without your help...very very much appreciated!

Another big shout to the SWWWKC club for getting involved and donating many prizes!

Also a huge thanks to the brands that came along with all their kit...Mutiny/Axis/Flysurfer/Brunotti/Ozone/Shinn/Star/Airush/Epic/Blankforce


I think everyone agreed it worked out a better result moving the jam to Aber, especially with the new Blast Car Park and facilities of the Pop in Cafe and the Naval Club bar etc
Hopefully we can build on this!


The Blast Car Park with just some of the shiny new kit....

Great to see you all on Saturday, thanks for organising it. Pity i missed sunday sounded like a blast... Friday was a good experience too though, first time with 7m kite in waves :-)

btw is there any way to predict a good sea breeze coming in? would like to know for planning trips out from wiltshire. Windguru is a waste of money.

Windguru doesnt even attempt to predict them.
Locally clear skies out to sea , fluffy clouds over land seem to predict best but that is no help to you all the way up there !
Check the wind meter on the blast site. Aberavon should also be back in the next few days or so.
Today for example is scorching but what sea breeze there is is less than 10 kts Sad

If its going to happen generally it will have swung SW by about 12. There is another kind that happens occasionally too but even harder to forecast and that's a NW that comes in about 5PM for a couple of hours.

Hmm, having spent three weeks on our Portugal trip listening to everyone offer there opinions on "what I should be using" instead of my crap, that's nice to hear.

Ultimately it's very subjective and in the end I just use what I personally like and think will suit the video....but they have to match up.

I wonder if Friday after lunch might work at Aber or rest

Westerly is forecast @ 10mph - if sea breeze kicked in could it be on?

Directions to Pedalabikeaway : Post code GL16 7EH. Or
When you arrive in Monmouth on the duel carriage way at the traffic lights turn right over the river Wye. At the roundabout with the Lidl on it turn left on the A4136 (Staunton Road) continue on this road for a few miles and eventually you will come across a staggered cross road which will say (to the) right Lydney 8 miles B4234. There should be a Brown sign saying cycle center at this point too. Turn right down here, after aout 3/4 of a mile you'll see the center . Parking is £3.50 for the day.
