Hells bells September has truly been sh*t!
Hopefully a change in sight for at least a few days later in the week.

Here's the latest vid now added to youtube...slightly different to the Vimeo one from a few days ago..

Windguru has a star at 1700!!! 

I'm going to be down Aber at five if anyone fancies a gamble. Don't bother it you've got to make a journey as it'll probably die off.

I'm just getting a bit desperate now. Not been in for weeks.

Louise keep an eye on the forum
aberavon may not work today if too much North in wind direction. Rest bay (Porthcawl) may be a more viable option
.??

Yup , just checked the beaches here and they are very cross already..Aber will be cross offshore, a lot of OFF
We're going to check Rest again at 11am hopefully get a quick hour in as we both have to go then.

What a day for me today at rest, handling the kite seemed more natural and I did my first water start, took me so by surprise, lasted all of two meters, didn't know what to do next so slosh back under water. But now I've seen the surface i'm gonna go for it again !! Super big grin on the face day.

Well try and put lots of two meters together one after the other, wow wouldn't that be great. But I think theres alot to learn for me before I can string that together. Think we newbies maybe need to band together to support each other, there must be a few of us around I guess. What do you think Tonyn?

Thats what the sport is all about..

Help and support..

I don't think there is a sport that does is so well..

Its a good idea newbies supporting each other, but its good to get out with experienced kiters, to see

how its done.

For tips and for safety..

I'm hoping to come down tomorrow afternoon I guess a few will be out at aber.

Anyone going out at Porthcawl? it's a bit closer for me (coming from chippenham, wiltshire)

Also maybe looking to borrow/buy a spare leash if anyone has one? the safety on mine has gone..

cheers

Just need the wind to kick in as forecast at or around mid day and we will be on for a fab afternoon at either Aber or rest.

My preference is Aber in the forecast direction as I have a aspiration of long - "along the shore line" and "on top of the water" reaches in thigh deep water - mummmmmmmmm

Yep looks like it's been blowing pretty consistently since sunrise: http://www.blastkiteboarding.co.uk/index.php?_a=viewDoc&docId=19

I'll aim to come to Porthcawl hopefully for 1ish.

Still looking for a leash if anyone's got a spare.. :-)
