W/Ending 20th December

A good session albeit rather battered at Aber with a nice crowd out. Powerful surf and lighter winds but fun was had regardless. Saw some flying Santas out but no reindeer. Glad made the effort as seems Wales is now going into full lockdown from midnight tonight - to "get it in" before Bor...

W/Ending 13th December

Glad your mutts pull - Lulu only does that when chasing a squirrel and thats normally in the wrong direction ;-) It took about a year for them to get it and even now they are not real strong at pulling like some dogs... But they do love it! Been using a CX harness with Lu for a few years - really j...

W/Ending 6th December

The waves boosted me rather than t'other way round.

A skill I am missing; to be able to pop a couple of metres at the right point. This ability really helps avoid stopping dead on a wave smashing you in the face...

W/Ending 6th December

A more rare experience; smashing out through the waves and dropping into some pretty meaty swell on the way back. Respect to the strapless guys for getting out through that. How on this earth do you do it. More than just belief. Wimped out on the surfboard (just not very current aka confident) so us...

Good raw shot too.

I need to take my old 4 out but too lazy and not much to shoot while I'm out either.

Pot of gold in Port Talbot.

They will need that with the new plans for the plant...

Superb photo.

From a GoPro ?

15 or so out on a winters Monday morning.

Covid is having some weird results.

Good to see some old faces, even if that was Marc and Ritchie ;-)

W/Ending 15th November

Glad you all had a good session. From Marcs photo: "Inn the bubble" is that a new pub ? Just good to see folk out and smiling again. Ref Kite-sand-salt. I too am with JV here. Pack away kite in the car. Get home. Hang kite up and let it dry out then tap sand off it. Again no mould issues. ...

First Impressions - 2021 North Equipment

The only issue this week seems to be the tide not playing synch with lockdown... Its interesting ref. the Cross and straps. Its' shape and outline I thought could lend to being ridden a little more TT style than surfboard in that (as Marc says) you can keep feet fairly planted and the board will do ...

First Impressions - 2021 North Equipment

Thanks David, I don't kite with a back strap just front normally so do place rear door further forward to try and get upwind more. Just time and practice I think of which I've had very little this year. The board I find hammers upwind best is my old Shinn Wave TT when going int he directions its des...

First Impressions - 2021 North Equipment

Thanks for that, good summary. Anything that would help me learn to gybe rather than ride toeside (poorly) or swap the board around when out back would help. Also find on occasion dropping onto a steeper wave from out back results in the board going too fast and the kite lines going slack - I know a...

First Impressions - 2021 North Equipment

Good thread this one and a good review fella. I have been wondering if a board like the cross which is quite parallel in shape compared to a classic directional surf board helps with onshore winds and rinding mush ? The reason I ask is going upwind on a TT seems easier than a surfboard (in my experi...
