While STILL waiting for the wind I watched the video. Interesting how they reckon windsurfing died off as much as it did, fingers crossed kitesurfing won't suffer the same. Not enough youngsters in kitesurfing as far as I can see, perhaps too expensive compared to surfing for example.

Anyone having trouble accessing iKitesurf on a PC? I just get 'loading' & nothing coming up.

This was discussed quite a bit whilst at the North dealer trip to Morocco last week, and has also been discussed for many years within organisations such as the BKSA, it's not looking very good for the long term!

That doesn't sound too good. Surely all those manufacturers can't survive either.

Great day at Aber for lessons, was a bit light for the tt guys but Jon was killing it on the foil all day out the back.
Had a nice quick session on the foil after the lessons, great day.

Tomorrow is possibly cross to cross off in the morning and likely very light too, however hopefully it will be good later when the tide drops back off the rocks. 8-)

It was quite windy earlier but has now dropped off loads, maybe 13mph max

Hope it picks up by the time the tide drops back
