Lee, heading down tomorrow should arrive just after midday, what beach will be working tomorrow? Just had the offer of joining a girls kite team that's entering in the kitebeast comp being held up our way! Gutted that it clashes so well with this event, right couple of foxy chicks as well......I don't think rob will be coming based on the current forecast as he's having it huge in Ireland.

Hey Nathan, not sure if 15-16 knots is quite 7m weather, especially someone your size :wink:
ummm, wind direction does not look like cross off, more cross shore I would have said, according to the Guru....

But Sunday is looking very promising, good wave period with nice little wave, now then if we can all tell Mister Bennett to stay at home we should have a good comp

Too be honest Denz i don't have such a small kite, may get one for the boy !!

Met office is giving 29mph for Sunday and SSW so we'll have to wait and see......

Just hope that it all goes off and a good time is had by all !

Epic conditions today, 9m kites and over head swell with massive wave period, could not ask for more, video will be done as soon as all footage is collected in.

Thank god we got dickies truck out, can you imagine next years membership fee and entrance fee if we hadn't. The entire BKSA membership owes a debt of gratitude to denzil, the inventor of slack line, the inventor of the blocart and the gent who risked his own vehicle in the tow out. Nice one!'
