You should be, we all do it and you'll never stop doing it! Cool

Regards the kite found by the RNLI yesterday it was a Poilsh guys, he lost it at Rest Bay during the session (I'm guessing it was when I was running up to grab my camera cos' I never saw it going)

The kite was spotted out at the Esplanade, all good though and they pulled it in for him.

22mph WNW at the moment and wall to wall sunshine here!

Yes I'll be at Aber or Rest as I would like to pick up some boots from Marc before my toes drop off, it may be raining though, so it could be a cool air temp.

Been out for a few hours taking pics/video here in Porthcawl. The surf is big but not the kind of big we were having in last years storms (at least not yet)
Blinking cold though.

lol, it is yes!
Don't think many would venture out in the conditions we faced today to be fair. We got hit by at least three big squalls but there is no where to come in, we had to just sit it out (well I spent half the time getting lofted down wind)
But it was so worth it.

Just been checking the pics/vid but as usual the gopro flattens it so much and I didnt get any decent shots from the land with the dslr when Andy was out...we need a photographer for when we are out there...would have been some classic shots today for sure.

Can anyone give a wind report for Porthcawl, it looks like one of those days when it should be windy but maybe it's not? Thanks
