Yep, i'm hoping to head out. Will be travelling from Cardiff, so a shorter journey than normal. Will go wherever the right weather and crowd are.

Pumping 7m conditions at Rest today, stayed dry as well.
Well done Alex, 200m runs, shame the beach got in your way..!

I thought I was seeing things today!!.. 2 guys on the beach in personal protective trainers and hoodie trying to put a beach tent or windbreak up at first glance..

It turned out they had unpacked a 9m 2002 slingshot fuel £70 fresh from ebay, finally attached some lines to it in some manner, then tried to hot launch it not even inflated, no harness just holding the bar at full power!!!..and obviously 20m from the rocks in 30mph onshore winds! affraid

I quickly made my way to shore and along with some of the bristol guys ran over and shall we say "educated them" !!..needless to say they have my card and will be having lessons next season and will hopefully put their impulse purchases straight back on ebay or in the bin!

They were even toying with taking it up a mountain while the other guy was waiting for his £170 ebay 2000 and something Waroo to arrive!!!
A safe end to a potential nasty!! Very Happy

Fantastic day at rest - well powered on 7m great to get out - two Santas on the water - pictures not extracted from soaking wet mobile! Saw the crazy 9m slingshot flyers - thank god they hadn't pumped it up they would have been in serious trouble. yes glad to hear they are going to have lessons. It was my son Sam he went over to join in 'educating' them - selfishly I just headed back to the van for tea and mince pies! Cracking sesh - hope you persuade your son to join the Exeter windriders helipdboy.

How's it looking down in Rest/Porthcawl? The breeze has picked up in Cardiff, but is it worth the drive with my 9m?

Just back in nice session on the 6.5 . Pretty cold and wet . Wind had gone South East here in the last 30 mins or so . If your heading out in porthcawl I guess coney will be best . Off to do Christmas relatives part II ! Lest see if there is snow on the A470 !

Rest Bay will be your best bet tomorrow due to it being NW, the earliest you will b able to get in will be 12 - 12.30. Looks like it'll b a good one :-)

I just checked an alternative website that never lets me down and I reckon 12/9m this afternoon at rest.

Either that or its the curse of the new equipment - sorry all

Although its freezing outside!!!

Deciding in the next 45mins if its gonna be worth a drive
