Keep it? sell? or hold,,,,,

Re: Gul fugitive dry suit

Ben, This sounds great, but could you answer a few queries? What do you wear under the drysuit? (apart from a grin!) do you need a wettie hood or is the Soul hood enough? How do wettie boots fit over the foot seals? What cold temp do you reccon you could cope with? Are you wearing gloves? Cheers m8!

Re: Open Sea Kiting

Island life is definitely not an experience most mainlanders could cope with. We enjoy the semi-remoteness and 'wild' nature of our life so much up here. Nothing like what the Southern Atlantic can through at you tho,,,, What's the land temp/water temp out there @ the moment? Eeek checked wiki; 270 ...

Re: Tiree trip

I would take a surfboard or SUP too as there is not much to do if there is no wind. Tiree is a fabulous place - you will not believe the pure white sand and azure blue water. I have been to lots of places kitesurfing and Tiree tops them all. Watch out for the basking sharks. and Orca's!!!!! :shock:...
