Brazil 2019

It’s really weird they seem to have no clue where it’s coming from . Their president is blaming Venezuela but the scientists say it’s the wrong kind of oils . A proper mystery that’s been going on for a month now crazy there is no official clean up it’s pretty much volunteer based

Aber Muck update

Winter winds

Ignore Alun he's always on a 5m always has been....and the surfboard makes a huge difference obviously but also he knows how to get most out of kite ie he’s been kiting a long time and is not a “lazy kites” ;) What marcs saying is I’m not normal ;) . For most people a 7 is the goto over the winter....

Not just Aber the last few days. Both Coney and Rest have had Red alerts for Raw Sewage discharge. It's always a problem after heavy rain.
Doesnt actually seem that windy here, will have the Wind meter back on later I hope
