Re: Help needed; shipping kites to Vietnam

if you were desperate would it be possible to take a smaller kite as hand luggage & put a bigger one in checked luggage as part of your allowance? obviously you'd still have your board to pay for but I don't know of any airline that would charge £1500 for that. you could just buy a board out there a...

Re: Have people moved from Hayling to Shoreham/Lancing

I really hate to say this but due to the increased volumes, varying "abilities" and general attitudes toward safety, space and the "rules of the road"......this beach has really started to lose it on the enjoyment front..seriously !!.... I think ill start doing downwinders again. M Yes it was over ...

Re: Grab the HKA lubricant...

Regarding your "main fact"; The GC (as stated by the attending GC member at the agm) were perfectly happy with how things were running with the hka at that time, as they were for all the previous years. As far as the GC were concerned the hka was standing the test of time (as stated by the attendin...

Re: Grab the HKA lubricant...

A few FACTS: The main facts is: The golf Club want to see paid beach management in place as they feel the voluntary system will not stand the test of time. Now regarding this, the HKA set up Dutyman and lots of members chipped in and helped but also on some days there would be only one or two show ...

Re: Grab the HKA lubricant...

apple i know your version of what happened and we had a massive thread all about how the hka had been stitched up etc, the result was that a chris was penalised by the BKSA, (incorrectly it turns out as he has had his qualificatios returned to him) a new HKA committee was formed as a result they pu...

Re: Grab the HKA lubricant...

as said above, .. it was an open process for all parties, they chose Chris. open ? you must be having a laugh. lol, i don't think so. the decision was made behind closed doors months ago. cbk sent out documents informing all hka members that the decision had been made, cbk had been granted the leas...

Re: Grab the HKA lubricant...

CBK is a commercial enterprise and like any other it needs money to survive. If enough people refuse to do business with CBK and its related enterprises it will go under. I am sure the golf club know they have a good beach for water sports and probably see it as a way of earning some extra cash as ...
