Rest looked quite good, windy and cross on from the left.
Coney will also work fine.

Right I finish work at four, I can be down Aber for five, or further West for six-ish. 

Unfortunately high tide is about seven tonight, so I'm trying to judge the best spot to head for? 

Is anyone about after work today, where you heading?

Vick, keep an eye on the weather as we have already had thunder/lightning pass through and the usual squally weather that comes with them..think I'm going to save it for tomorrow (unless it brightens up significantly)

Anyway....video ^^?

Like the video a lot. Shocked

I wonder why do you not put "credits' on the end so us mere mortals can understand what some of the moves seen within were and of course details the great sound tracks that you use (you must consider a best of blast sound tracks CD for Christmas if material is in the public domain)

Must take you a lot of hard work pulling these together - very well done

Great fantastic, a few good points there especially the credits for music etc
I think it would be pretty much impossible to list the moves...besides doubt if some of D's even have a name Laughing


I had a fantastic short session today at my favourite spot and on my favourite kite for surfing (5m Surf) between storms....I got out when I saw the next one on the horizon.
Someone was out at Coney after...man that must have been gusty shit!

it's forecast to drop down from 4pm...sweet as it is when I finish work (and this time I have my harness with me). Due to the conditions, I don't really like going on my own though. Anyone for Aber, Coney, Rest?

Hiya guys,

Think i have met a few of you before, I'm the one that flys the peter lynn foils.

I'm thinking of packing the car up and heading down rest bay for 12. Hopefully see a few of you on the beach!

Its going to be a big one!

I'll be down Aber for five. 

I would like to go to Llanelli, but I won't get there until six and I don't think there'll be enough daylight/beach by then. 

Shame, I love Llanelli beach.

You know what it's like, give it half an hour it'll be clear and sunny, you can never tell with the weather round here until you turn up on the beach and see with your own eyes.
Guess I'll find out what it's like at five Very Happy

Met a few peeps here for cuppa T's as it was monsooning...we hung out till it looked like it had passed and headed to my local.
We sat out about three more heavy squalls that passed then three of us headed out...it was well worth the wait...classic clean wave conditions.. 9lives was lovin' it.

Sarah came back down later and stole my 6.5m Renegade but she had some nice clean conditions too.
