I've never kited at Coney, looking at the wind on Wednesday it's looking do able with the tide dropping PM. Anyone with more local experience reckon Wednesday is a goer?

Bring on the Atlantic depressions!

Im debating which side of high tide to head down tomorrow.

Forecast wise the wind is looking slightly stronger in the morning, weatherwise also looking better earlier on.

High tide is at 12:52PM (7.90m). Realistically when is the beach useable either side of the high tide? bearing in mind its midweek and the kiddywinks are back in school?

Tides are not an issue at Coney other than it affects the direction of the wind...so low tide is better as often at high it can be more cross off.
Got in at 5pm for an hour on my tod...luuurvly

It was ok right out the back but very cross off and super on/off on the shore line.
Unless your happy being way out back I'd say no.

Yeah, no problem with being out the back. But alone.....AND on a cross-off, I took the wise, but unexciting option.

Still, I had a bag of chips and sat out for an hour or so, was a lovely evening.

Had a banging session from 9th at Coney. was cross off most of the morning, packed up when it got a bit too off. 11 iron was grand.

Headed to Oxwich expecting a killer. Massive disappointment with the 14 Iron falling out the sky.

A few of us are heading out on the mtb's tomorrow if anyone fancies a challenging ride. Plan is to do Blade at Glyngorrog, it'll be a 4hr ish ride, so make sure you bring plenty of food to keep you going. Meeting at Glyngorrog car park for 11am.

Not kitesurfing but as no wind weekend....


What a cracking ride, we did the Blade Trail...quite a full on 24k of single track and pretty technical in places. Hats off to Steve, a baptism of fire for him and also to the girls Wendy/Abi and Sarah for all pushing their limits so far!

Steve's got the scars to prove it too!
