Hight tide is 12 and its 8.1 M there wont be a great deal of beach here. Its currently sunny and very very gusty. Last squall hit 40-50 kts . I was thinking of looking later if it does calm a little . Its proper NW here so dead cross too M if you go out keep a good eye on it coz it can suddenly go off at aber in this direction.

Thanks Al. It calmed down a little by the time I got there with lows of about 22 and gusts of about 32 - though I think it went higher as I only tested the wind once! Thankfully it was quite sunny so not to brassic. Arrived at 1 pm so there was a reasonable amount of launch area once I went past the stones. 9m for me.

Surf looked quite small until I got out there - well over head height.

We were hoping to go snow kiting today sadly the snow wasn't that great up the Beacons and when we got to the top of Pen Y Fan it was like 60mph!!

Maybe tomorrow Wink

Looks good for tomorrow, hopefully the forecast sun will keep you all warm. I've got friends coming down otherwise I would definitely go kiting in the freezing cold sea. Have fun.

I checked Rest about 10ish and it was VERY offshore I then met AJ at Broughton, no signal to post update sorry.
It was extrremely up and down at Broughton...bangin 7m and then nothing followed by the same. I really should have worn my Merino Gloves (or any gloves) as my fingers properly stopped functioning! They are still tingling now hours later.

Winter deffo arrived today!! Evil or Very Mad
