Hey Gregski, for Coney, when it's working, this is usually worth a check:

Why not crack your Flysurfer Speed 3 21m out?

That was a close one!
So very nearly had 5hrs of wasted driving.
Went for a nice ride in the sunshine instead :D

I thought that RNLI sensor cannot be relied on... they were stuck at 18mph for a very long time, now they appear to be stuck on 9mph :cry:

I was at Coney around 3:30pm, it was enough for 13m, unfortunately lost the board on a first tack (it was indeed a bit dodgy cross-off) :( it took me an hour to find it... luckily it washed out at the end of Trecco Bay, some dog walkers were very interested in their find... never again will I attempt kiting is such sketchy conditions :oops:

I indeed took 21m with me, will be looking to sell it if anyone is interested :mrgreen:
First tack upwind in Morocco April 2018... Shinn ADHD, BEST Profanity / GP's 7,9,11,13, Ozone Zephyr V4, Shinn King Gee, Flysurfer Speed 3 21m / Nobile Flying Carpet Split, North Rebel 10m, 12m, North Vegas 9m, 10m, Brunotti S-Bryck... SO ADDICTED!!!

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.


There is a reason why no one else would have been out on that beach yesterday.


Man you have more kit than most shops, you’ve heard the expression “all the gear no idea” ? :lol:

You honestly need no more than three kites, maybe two boards.

I have just emailed them (address under ‘contacts’ on weather station webpage).
Basically saying:
1) How the weather station is invaluable to us
2) Is there anything we (kitesurfing community) can do to help improve reliability?
3) Even A flag/windsock/streamer in view of the camera would provide some useful info on windspeed/direction.
