And it certainly was awesome today at Rest, quite unexpected too.
Positively warm in the spring sunshine.

We got to demo some of the kit left over from the Jam inc Airush Diamond (ladies kite) and Ozone Reo (surf kite)

It's been designed from the ground up for ladies or smaller people, smaller thinner bar / shorter reach / lighter bar pressure etc etc

I met a student at Rest Bay at 11am we were a bit too optimistic.
It was absolutely dead with golf club flag just hanging, the surf was tip top though! Cool

If if if the conditions are good and you're off to Pembrey or something would anyone be able to offer me a lift from South Wales onwards? i reckon Bristol to Pembrey would be overly costly and tiresome for me on my own.

Cheers Marc.

Bear in mind i've got a 1hr 20min journey to get over to you.. wouldn't want to hold you up if you're eager. What's the earliest you'd ever consider heading off?

You need to take a packed lunch, I just can't be arsed with the walk plus it's very very shallow for a long way out so easy to hurt yourself.

LOL @ packed lunch
Yes, food & supplies are needed for that long, long walk out

Is easy to loose your sight of the entry pathway that far out
