From Tony....

Ring in the New Year,
Reflecting on the past,
Make a resolution,
Make life a BLAST. !!!

Windy from Wednesday hopefully, bloody cold this morning with a very heavy frost.

Ego?

I have been to Kite Junkies in Sharm back when I was first starting out. Lovely super clean thermal wind from early morning till midday at which point it disappeared every day that I was there and I think that this is the normal situation throughout the year. I was on my 13 Waroo (remember those!) and some days the nine. Personally I'd take the biggest kite you've got and that awesome Shinster to make the most of the conditions and as many small ones as you can carry. Other than that it's an amazing spot, lots of flat water and waves outside the lagoon, there are a lot of very big spiky looking things in the water but I never managed to land on one thankfully and they are not too close to the launch spot.

Good of you to post and share your session AFTER you've had it!! Wink

Let people know when your going, then others especially those new to all this can kite safe in the knowledge more experienced are there to keep an eye on them...simple really.
