Weather station Rest Bay

A while back I emailed Porthcawl RNLI Point out the value of the weather station to us and asking if there was anything we could do to help improve the reliability. For info, Just had this reply: .......... Hi Dave, We have had the weather data feed to our website updated to use the new API which wa...

W/Ending 3rd March

Likely enough wind.
Problem is high tide is about 1.30 meaning Rest won’t be doable until 4-4.30.
You could go to Aber...but likely less wind and definitely more chemicals :x

W/Ending 24th February

I’ve posted many times on here about the rnli weather meter, I’ve spoken to them about how bad it is that it doesn’t work. Maybe you and others could also contact them to explain why it’s bad to be stuck like it is. I have just emailed them (address under ‘contacts’ on weather station webpage). Bas...

W/Ending 24th February

Any early eyeball on the wind would be much appreciated. Thinking about a pm session. Suspect there will be wind but may be a bit too much E in it for my liking..always feel a bit uncomfortable going out much past the end of the pier when it’s like that, particularly at this time of year :? Shame th...

Price of kite luggage flying with TUI

I think TUI are pretty reasonable. I checked how much a large sports bag (32kg) would be to Cancun (Mexico) and it was only £64 return!
Just give them a call...that’s what I did. Got an answer v quickly.

Hope it turns out good for you..
I don’t think the tide times are that great for us non-locals :(

W/Ending 13th January

Next year we're pretty sure we will be running Brazil trip in January. Flights for next season (if booked now) are looking like £545 Seems like a very good price - might you be able to offer a 1 week option? I guess travel time might still put people off but personally I'd jump at it for 30 degree ...

So sorry to hear you had to end such an excellent session like that.

Maybe the last couple of kiters to leave the car park should keep an eye out for each other until both are ready to leave...particularly on these dark winter afternoon/evenings when not many are around.
