Okay a couple of questions re Porthcawl this weekend?

(1) directions from the M4?

(2) Can you landboard on that beach (once i've been knackered by the sea)?

(3) what kite size on the water on Saturday?

Any opinions on how is the 4cast looking at Porthcawl for Saturday? Huge difference betweeb BBC and Windguru. BBC is showing about 17mph NW and WG is 26mph WNW. I've never been to Porthcawl. Can anyone read the tea leaves?

Funny BBC is showing NW 17 mph and Windguru 25 mph WNW. that's a big difference. I don't have a kite that works in more than 20 mph.

Who is out 2morrow Sunday 10th and where are you flying? I'm looking for a kitesurfing/landboarding session 2morrow in Wales or the SW and prefer to kite with others. Give me a ring if you want company.
