Looking towards an afternoon session either at rest or Aber when wind will potentially be a little stronger

Tomorrow afternoon will be a dead certainty and probably at abber

Every so often you take the gamble..the charts look good, the Southerly wind is due to build and it's all shaping up for an epic day. So I headed off to the Gower early today and I just got back...

It was rubbish! Sad

The surf was huge at Gennith (cross shore from left) and I did get out for a while but the wind was just not enough for the size of the surf so was left underpowered facing walls of white water...never good.

Sat we are probably just gonna head to Pembrey

Oh, and you stand on the hard planky thing and put the flappy thing in the air, right?

Can't come out and play Crying or Very sad
Got the kite out to check all was there and found loads of tiny pin holes in the ends of the leading edge bladder, along where creases had formed when I rolled the kite up.
This was a relatively new bladder, so hasn't been flown much.
Is this normal?

I'm guessing you may have got some sand in the bladder while pumping it up and it's worked it's way to the end of the bladder ends?

Not seen them get pin prick holes where folded before?

ps this is one of the very very big advantages of the large Epic kite bag...you don't have to tightly pack the kite up so less chance of this than some of the smaller neater bags we see.

I know Alun was hopeful the station would be put up on Remo's (but that was quite a while ago)
I'm sure Alun will be along soon enough with an answer in full

I should add, there is not normally that much difference between rest and aber from now on...in the summer it can vary with sea breeze etc though
