Glad you had a great day - there is more to life than JUST kiting ...well for some anyway.

Enjoy and hope you're having a tipple right now.

Silly question but how do they get on the wave in the first place ?

I am presuming tow in from a jetski ?

Gives new meaning to "mowing the lawn"

Yeah I’m sure they’d start with a jetski

Shows the power of hydraulics - to support that weight from an airframe (hang glider) requires a wing of c. 15 sqm.

If I was any good at either SUP, Surf or Kiting I'd have a go but struggle as it is with the other genre.

On another note lets hope the declining numbers in hospitals (Worcester now has zero Covid patients) and that Wales has finally pulled its finger out with vaccinations that the beaches will be opening soon....

There have been zero kites out here from what I have seen, then again the conditions haven't been all that favourable though.

Police appear to have stepped up there checking/fining also. They have been set up in many random places around Porthcawl pulling traffic over including opposite our house.

We could quite easily walk/cycle/skateboard over but have resisted so far

How sad. It's been extremely cold in that part of the country and I wonder if this might have played a part, your reactions are so much slower when you are properly cold. I'm not sure I'd go in at the moment even if I could...
