It's allready dropped and gone NW at Aber . Was 30 kts now less than 12

It's NW so rest bay should be a good bet

Just a heads up....it's absolutley bangin here in Porthcawl


AJ you sure the Aber weather station does not need calibrating as it's way way less wind than here in Porthcawl, I reckon it's at least near 40mph here at the moment and only showing 19-24mph at Aber?

It cant be just that it's NW surely?

Batteries have still not arrived yet for the Rest Bay station!! Evil or Very Mad

I've been on the beach . It's definately about 20 Kts average . Note it's gusting 30+ on the Aber one
you can get C batteries pretty much anywhere , tescos etc . Local shop here has them but they want 4 quid for two. The console needs 3 . I don't think its the out side battery but only way to know is to go look .

Rest bay is often double aber in a NW.

Looking at all the local readings 20kts gusting 30 seems right.

Rest was well tasty today! Powered right up on 7m VX, big lumps of water out the back!..
I counted about 20 kites out, busy for a challenging day!!..few safetys going off but no major mishaps..

What happened at Aber Al?..Was it a kiter that got a helicopter ride??

Thanks Al. I haven't left Cardiff yet, so hopefully by the time I get there it should be do-able. Wind is looking less hectic than earlier!
