The Infinity is a good curse....whenever I pump it up, the wind picks up....

Good work out though.

I went for a quick one at Coney as it was SSW and pretty much onshore...got down on the beach and it was very light, pumped up my 9m and then a massive squall hit (went and hid in the van, hail the lot)

Eventually it passed so went back down and the wind had gone completely cross shore coming over the town....it was erm interesting. Good size waves too.

There is absolutely no way a kite from a few years ago could have coped with what mine did today.

When I came in another huge squall hit and it was pretty scary how much the wind picked up!

It is looking very south if not sse tho and as Marc says we know what that means locally . But even a tiny bit of East can bring it thru

Think Coney will be as good as anywhere today it's very southerly as forecast.
It's around 20mph right now.

Hi, this is my first post here, is anyone heading out on Sat? was thinking Aberafon or wherever else is sensible. A word of warning, I'm a near beginner (fresh out of a 3 day course) so want to get practicing, but ideally not completely alone in case it all goes wrong!

With our local knowledge I really don't think it's going to happen on Saturday.
We just had a lovely session at Coney, over powered on a 6.5m
Tomorrow is looking pretty good to!

It's looking quite southerly for Saturday and that only means one thing around here...lighter winds than shown forecast. That said if it goes a little SE or SW then it can be ok (like today with the SE)

We are keeping an eye on it but it certainly does not worth dragging students down from as far as London especially as they want to do two days.
