Blow the cobwebs off the kit ladies, those bleeding easterlies have buggered off and it's looking like a decent weekends worth of wind coming our way.

 

Getting niggly with kiters depression and desperate for a session so fingers and toes crossed the forecast holds.

 

Any takers beware of them real big high tides early afternoon so park 'em motors hard up against them dunes.

What a day fellas! - Loads of stoke, sunshine and natter, fantastic 11m stuff. Massive tides meant moving the motor twice though, but I at least got on the beach - unlike some poor kiter dudes.

On the beach for 09:30 out the pond at 5:30, no aches, no pains. Glaxo should bottle that sea water stuff - but the Stella brewery should take some credit too ;)

 

Looking pretty decent for the rest of the week, bag that warm water while you can.

 

Top day :)

Good to hear it, Aindale is a special place and will always hold a place in my heart. My knees and hamstrings are on the mend to a point that I'm running and pushing for some kind of fitness again now. I don't think I'll kite again because of the knee stress, but I may come and do a Banks to Crosby run sometime soon.

 

Ta for the advice on parking. Have fun fellas.

Ace day :)

Low 13m winds in the morning, high 11m winds in the afternoon. Flew the 13 all the way through :) A wee bit overpowered but way too lazy to come in and change down :p

Jets and choppers all over us pulling in some practise in for the weekend fly-in.

.....and tons of cockles and lots of dead fish!? - Tsunami warning?

 

Came in after I pulled a 360, whilst trying to kiteloop the 13 (always a bad idea for that big dude) then pulled the bar the wrong way to exit - major Noobie mistake - kite crashed and I crashed...hard. Time for bed said Zeb.

Cheers to Andy for the sunscreen and the dude for the banana and the choc.

And real nice to see Big-Jon and some proper buggying down there - been too long dude.

 

Not a lot for the weekend but Sat afternoon is now going green :D

Was gonna pick up a new Blu_Ray player but hey Costco's open Sunday ;)

Nice vid Ian :)

 

Saw you on that yellow fun machine when I was out on the water Friday.

Used to have one of them in red, it was a great kite. Bought it off some dude who'd ripped it on a reef down under, had it repaired and it was one of the best arcs I ever had - in the end sold it to a guy in S.port and I replaced it with a 10m Venom 1 - another classic kite.

 

Always thought small arcs are just the best fun.

(except the Peter Lynn 630 I used to have...now that was just plain scary)
