Well that turned out pretty damn good to be fair, had all the seasons in just a few hours.
Nicely powered on the 9m with tt for a good while.

Is the cafe open yet ? I saw some posts suggesting they hadn’t fitted the cafe part out and it may not open till next spring ?

Nice pic

Porthcawl Surf is in downstairs but no sign of the Cafe opening and yeah we heard rumours of next spring too, ridiculous especially as Malc had to remove his Coffee Box the other week!

Was a good day yesterday. Nailed my transitions, one handed riding and even a few big accidental jumps :lol: . Good to see the newbies getting on well as well.

Though my last big ramp up a wave ended up in smashing my kite and deflating it again. Does anyone have any tips and tricks when taking bladders out ? And fixing inflate/deflate valves ?

Ah bummer
Regards the valves, you can try gluing them back on should they be peeling off but often it's better to just fit new ones by then.
Unfortunately It's often one of the first things to go on older kites.

Think it's just the screw thread inside that is on it's way out as it seems to be opening there. Dont think there is anything wrong with bladders but I'm going to take them out check them all and make sure all the water is out properly this time.

Are the valves easy enough to change ?
