Re: Newbie needs kite buddy Oxwich Bay this weekend

It will be very busy at Oxwich on Sunday, I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner personally. Wait for a nice SW where kiters will be spread along lots of different beaches in the area...

Re: Kite sales..

It's definitely not the best time of year to sell second hand kites but premium brands still hold their value well. I always register my kites on the North website which means I can show the buyer exactly when they were purchased so there is no ambiguity as to the age of the kites. My 2014 7,9,12 Ve...

Excellent Service from S2AS

Brilliant service and advice from Angelo at S2AS, messaged him yesterday afternoon and received this shiny new board 22 hours later! The Pop has a very solid feel and looks extremely well made, hoping to get out and give it a proper demo tomorrow but reading the numerous reviews available I think I'...

Re: Does anyone think this OK?

The windows are clearly open you massive tool. Marc and Sarah treat Monty like one of the family, you'd be hard pushed to find a better looked after and more loved pet.

Ned Taylor Kite Repair

I managed to put a decent sized tear in my kite from the leading edge to the trailing one the other week. Emma from North UK suggested Ned to do the repair so I sent it down to him. I had the kite back less than 48 hours after I sent it with a really neat and strong looking repair in the original co...

Split boards

Has anyone tried a split board yet? Any shops have any demos that they can send out? (when we get some wind, fingers crossed).
