24-27mph at Rest Bay now!!

That's just the wide angle on the camera Steve (I think), or is it that I just don't know my own strength?

Is Aber going to be a better bet than Rest today? Never been myself.

There is not usually much difference between Rest Bay and Aberavon unless there is any North in the wind and then Aber can be very on and off as the wind has not had time to settle after coming over the land/hills at the far right hand end of the beach but by the time the wind gets to Porthcawl it has settled a lot more.

As it happens it's NW today so Rest will be way better!

At the moment it's squally fronts coming through, one minute torrential rain the next sunshine...going to be one of those days I think.

I'm going to check Rest Bay at 11am as previously mentioned and then decide if worth it.

OK, as mentioned to a few of you before we are thinking of doing a Newbie day, preferably in a few weeks time once our lessons die off a little (plus the crossing and Wavemasters etc).
A day of help for those people who are close but not quite up and riding....this will be FREE for all our previous students

Let us know who's interested?

Just a reminder guys, if you can please keep an eye out for my board which was lost on Saturday at Rest Bay, but could be anywhere. It's a Crazyfly Raptor Pro (red/white/black) Should have my name on a sticker, but may have come off.

Thanks

Hi Marc

took my board in for repair. He said he will have a go but he doesn't hold out much hope that it will last more than a few sessions.

so regarding the second hand one you have. Could you send me a name and photo and a price, please.

P.s could I test it out for a few sessions.

mine won't be ready for two weeks Crying or Very sad

Interesting day, those hailstorms etc followed by beautiful sunshine. Finished off with a high tide session at Llanelli, a restful walk in the park after Rest bay, until another squal came in..good practice rapid downwinder to get back to shore in one piece :-)
