Ah wondered who the crowd were down on the shoreline at Coney.
Coney looked a little more wind than Rest Bay

Louise I'll be up for it (if the sun comes out to play also)

Went down to Pembrey - probably my best session in the last 5 weeks. It's a bit of a drive from Cardiff but its a great location if you fancy having a break from the big surf and want to practice some flat water stuff. I turned up at Rest at around 1100 today and it was only about 7 knots - drove to Pembrey and it was 14 - 18 knots.

Will save some diesel if it's SE tomorrow and go to Coney.

Giving it very serious consideration - may have to be an Aber session due to the tides.

Apols - would have sent an eyeball but only just seen this. I got out around 2pm and it was dropping off then. Anything after 2pm would have been tame.

Each to their own - in my experience dry kit don't go mouldy - best way to get kit dry is to wash off salt [and the sand] then I hang it up in the garage.

Mother always told me - look after your kit and your kit will look after you when you need it the most. don't think she had kitesurfing in mind at the time but the principle is transferable???

It IS deffo windy enough here!

If you wash with tap water you have to make sure it's completely dry when storing. The main thing is kites should not be stored for any period especially with tap water as it has chemicals in it.

Proper windy at the mo and looks like cross off at Coney.

PS: I have never "washed" a kite. Bit of a pointless task unless you have OCD.

Yup, only time I've ever washed a kite is to get the Aber scum of it, otherwise that would stain it for ever.

Went a tad mental at Coney, mparry put his 7m Renegade up but it was way to much and had to release it. It then swung SSW and dropped enough for him to go back in his 9m and then his 11m

mparry getting his back rolls and double back rolls dialed..
